Football's Dark Side: Corruption, Homophobia, Violence and Racism in the Beautiful Game by Professor Ellis Cashmore Football's Dark Side: Corruption, Homophobia, Violence and Racism in the Beautiful Game, Hardback (May 2014)

Association football is the richest, most popular sport in history with a multicultural global following. It is also riven with corruption, racism, homophobia and a violence that has for decades resisted all attempts to tame it.
