Sport Policy & Management vol:15
The SPM15-report (Geeraert, Bruyninckx & Scheerder, 2012) aims to explain how the organisation and structure of football has transformed from the early developments of association football in England at the end of the 19th century up until its current state. As Europe has always been the epicentre of football, the focus is almost inevitably on driving forces mostly situated at the European or EU-level. The report analyses the economic, political and legal driving forces.
