Professional soccer means many things to many people. For players, a means to possible fame and fortune. For fans, a source of local or national pride and perhaps the chance to score with a few bets. For criminal organizations, a cover for making millions in corrupt enterprises. Football, Gambling and Money Laundering describes in impressive detail the scope of the problem, the layers of denial that allow sports-related financial crime to flourish and the steps that are being taken--and that need to be taken to combat illicit operations in the sports world. Expert analysis explains criminal activity in the context of soccer and how sports governing bodies, the media and others have created a culture that regularly turns a blind eye. International data and instructive legal case examples shed light on the role of the Internet in the spread of gambling and money laundering as well as the strengths and weaknesses of current law enforcement, legislative, and sports-based efforts in fighting corruption.
