Soccer Mad Boffins in successful Swiss research visit!
Soccer Mad Boffins (Alex and Kevin) recently visited the International Olympic Committee, FIFA and the International Centre for Sports Studies (at the University of Neuchâtel) in Switzerland. This was a very successful visit and findings will be used to inform our forthcoming book on the 1966 FIFA World Cup, to be published by Routledge in 2016. It will be released 29th July, on the eve of the 50th anniversary of the famous final in which England lifted the Jules Rimet Trophy. Kevin noted that 'we were able to access an unparalleled selection of resources' on this trip while Alex commented that 'our book promises to be the most deeply researched business/management history of the 1966 FIFA World Cup published to date. We hope that it will be received enthusiastically by historians, business management, and sports academics aliike. Back of the net!.'
