Synopsis

'A superb go-to guide for anyone seeking context on why Qatar won the 2022 World Cup bid' Daily Express

The Fall of the House of Fifa is the definitive story of Fifa's rise and the most spectacular fall sport has ever seen.

For forty years Joao Havelange and then Sepp Blatter presided over a Fifa now plagued with scandal - dawn raids, FBI investigations, allegations of money laundering, industrial-scale bribery, racketeering, tax evasion, vote-buying and theft. Now David Conn, football's most respected investigative journalist, chronicles the extraordinary history and staggering scale of corruption. He paints revealing portraits of the men at the centre of Fifa - the power brokers, the indicted, the legends like Franz Beckenbauer and Michel Platini - and puts the allegations to Blatter himself in an extended interview.
