FootballBook - 2007
Kicking a football and becoming the next Pele: a Brazilian favela kid's dream. But the footballs made with child labour in Pakistan play a part in the big money made by backers like Berlusconi and Abramovich. Sweatshops and economic distortion mean that in 2004 Vietnam exported more Nike goods than coffee, while accountants Deloitte Touche estimated the European football market is worth around 10 billion. Then there are the celebrity football players with their skills and their zillions. The football economy is dissected and exposed in this eye-opening Trigger Issue.
