About the Author

David Conn is the author of The Beautiful Game and an award-winning journalist for the Guardian where he has been a key part of the coverage of the FIFA crisis.


"[Conn's] study of Sepp Blatter and other football officials is full of startling material and has cumulative power."--The Guardian
"Conn left no stone unturned, skillfully re-creating a time line of the corruption that threatened the very integrity of the game. His meticulous research and smooth writing style bring this unseemly chapter in FIFA history to a close, with realistic hope for the future of the most popular sport on earth....This is the conclusive account of the recent international FIFA scandal. As we look ahead to the 2018 World Cup, this is also a timely reminder that money and power are always a threat to high ideals in sports."--Library Journal
"When an award-winning journalist like David Conn speaks, you listen. When Conn writes a book, you read it. That's certainly the case with The Fall of the House of FIFA....It's easily the most comprehensive text ever written with regards to the history of FIFA and the recent corruption scandal that rocked the world's most popular sport.....This book is incredibly enjoyable, an experience you won't soon forget. It's a must-read for any soccer fan or even those interested in sports business or old-fashioned investigative journalism. You can't go wrong with this one!"--International Soccer Network
"[Conn's] book shows that the saga of world soccer's governing body since the 1970s has foreshadowed geopolitical shifts, notable the waning of the political and economic dominance of the West."--The New York Review of Books
