Abstract:

"The commercialisation of football in Europe since the 1990s has had a number of consequences for the game, not all of them beneficial to its wellbeing. The market forces that have defined these developments have impacted upon the financial future of clubs as key social and cultural institutions and some continue to see their existence threatened. The inevitable result is enforced sale of club assets for commercial development; their relocation to towns and cities many miles from their original locale, or the acquisition of clubs by individuals of whose motives many fans are rightly suspicious. In recent years one of the most high profile responses to these developments has been for groups of supporters to join together and purchase ownership of part of the club, or in some cases the entire club, to run it on a non-commercial basis. It mimics the successful membership model deployed by FC Barcelona and upon which entire organisations, like the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) has successfully existed for 125 years. This book will explore the background to this movement and its practical outworking by providing individual case studies from several European countries. This book was published as a special issue of Soccer and Society."--Back cover.
