Hello, for my film and television diploma, I'm writing a presentation about the recent internal fighting of Bayern Muenchen between Louis Van Gaal and Uli Hoeness,
I will also be presenting a piece about Football and the business aspects of it.
Thats why, for research purposes, I would really really love it, if I could gather your opinions on this question:
In recent years, do you believe that Football has become more business then a sport (especially in top leagues) or is there still a good balance between sport and business?
The more and varied opinions I can get the more awesome it will be, and the more of of a help it will be.
This question is for all European sporting leagues: La Liga, Bundesliga, Eredivsion etc...
I'm getting some excellant perspectives people, and its really really interesting to hear all the different opinions. Obviously, in my presentation I will give credit to your opinions! :)
One point I'd be keen to hear your views on is this: does it seem that big european clubs are putting more effort in spotting young talent abroadand...If so, is it unfair on the native youngesters of those european clubs and countries?
LGBT FAN CLUB a collection of ancient articles from El Mundo Deportivo
Barça's latest victory was preceeded last night at the Camp Nou by an official reception for the new LGBT fans club Penya Blaugrana and the inauguration of their new crest. All this in the backdrop of the Queer Football Funclubs Meeting, and event against discrimination that was held in Barcelona and that attracted gay and lesbian fans of many different football clubs in Europe. (...) Barça will thus become the first club in the Spanish La Liga to have an official LGBT fan club, (in Germany there are a few football clubs who already have them). ( Collapse )
