Africa, football, and FIFA : politics, colonialism, and resistance by Paul Darby( )

16 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 981 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The emblem of the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), is claimed to symbolize a "global fraternity united in sport". However, the globalization of relations between football's national associations, intercontinental federations and the world body have more often been conducted on the basis of parochial, national or regional loyalties rather than on a sense of internationalism. Nowhere has this been more apparent than in the relationship between FIFA and the Confederation Africaine de Football.

The significance of sport in Ireland though extends far beyond the achievements of such individuals. Sport has historically assumed a centrality in the lives of the island's inhabitants, a fact that can be measured by the numbers and commitment of participants as well as the emotional and financial invest
