Foundations of Managing Sporting Events : Organising the 1966 FIFA World Cup, Hardback Book

Foundations of Managing Sporting Events : Organising the 1966 FIFA World Cup Hardback

Part of the Routledge International Studies in Business History series

Description

2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the 1966 FIFA World Cup, hosted in England.

Unlike previous literature, which has tended to focus activities on the field, this book brings an institutional level approach to organizing the 1966 FIFA World Cup and examines the management process in the buildup and execution of the event.

This intriguing new volume looks at the first significant UK government intervention in football and how this created a significant legacy as the government started to take a real interest in leisure facilities and stadium safety as policy areas after this competition.

Foundations of Managing Sporting Events will be of considerable interest to research academics working on aspects of post war British, Imperial, and World history including sport, social, business, economic, and political history.
