In today’s world, sport has become an ever more important part of our daily lives. Television programs are consistently focused on worldwide athletic events, and countless dollars are spent on tickets and merchandising, allowing for the world’s biggest sports to have a constant cash flow.
In this project, we look at markets and media in contemporary European football, focusing specifically on four different actors within football and how they have changed with the evolution of the game. We analyze each of these components in order to see the intertwining effect from each vantage point and what insight we can gain from each independent observation. The four areas of interest are: the Back Room, the Manager, the Money, and the Player. Click on the drop-down menu above to see explore these topics.
