Synopsis

Beyond the booze and the bratwurst: what football really tells us about Germany, the UEFA Euro 2024 hosts

In summer 2024, the eyes of football fans worldwide will turn to Germany as it hosts the European Championship. For many, the country seems familiar territory: a footballing behemoth with clubs as famous as its beer and its cars. But, if you look closer, the beautiful game can offer a deeper understanding of Europe's powerhouse.

Played in Germany takes us on a journey through modern Germany’s football heartlands in search of the issues that define it. Through the stadiums, songs and simmering resentments of football, Kit Holden sheds light on a nation so diverse and divided that the only thing that really unites it is the game itself.

From the author of Sports Book Awards-shortlisted Scheisse! We're Going Up!
