About the Author

Stefan Szymanski is the Stephen J. Galetti Collegiate Professor of Sport Management at the University of Michigan's School of Kinesiology. Tim Harford has called him "one of the world's leading sports economists." He lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan.


" In a series of academic papers and his breakthrough book Soccernomics (2009), written with Simon Kuper, Szymanski has applied rigorous economic thinking to football. He has helped combat a sort of know-nothing view within the game that nothing could be learnt from numbers...For anyone interested in how football really works, both its central argument and many subsidiary ones make Money and Football powerful and entertaining." --The Times [UK]

"Szymanski writes the definitive guide to the financial aspect of world football in this detailed analysis about a difficult topic for laymen to grasp... It will become our definitive reference source on the intricacies of football finance for many years to come." --The Soccer Translator

"Another essential document from one of the top thinkers about modern-day sports." --Booklist

"I regard Stefan Szymanski as a trusted and smart thinker on the soccer business. This is fast-moving industry, and he's one of the best guides to it." --Billy Beane, General Manager of the Oakland A's
