    Abstract

    Book synopsis: A new world club championship, an extended European Champions' League - huge changes are sweeping through football globally. The national leagues are directly affected. This text is a comprehensive analysis of these developments. The English game has been at the centre of this turmoil. The defeat in 1999 of BSkyB's bid for Manchester United has led the TV company to secure stakes in other clubs, while remaining the biggest shareholder by far in Manchester United itself. Practical assistance is being given to supporter shareholder groups to introduce some democratic accountability of clubs to their supporters and local communities.
