Abstract

This volume brings together experts from around the world and from the football industry to focus on south Asian football. The book traces the history, achievments and prospects of football both in south Asia and among ex-patriate Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities. The place of football in the colonial and post-colonial past is explored and both British and Portuguese influences on the development of the game are considered. Contemporary issues such as the impact of the professional league in India and the role of UK Asians in the organization of the Indian game are considered. Future scenarios are explored and models for progression and problems facing the sport in south Asia are outlined.
