Capitalism, sport mega events and the global south / Billy Graeff

Graeff, Billy

Edited by Routledge. London - 2020

What are the social, political and economic consequences of staging sport mega events such as the Olympics and the World Cup? “Capitalism, sport mega events and the global south” presents a new approach to sport mega events and related issues, exploring elements that are not present or are not developed in the existing literature. This book explores the socioeconomic impact of these events on host countries in the global south. Drawing on a thorough case study of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, it examines how the residents of Porto Alegre perceived how they were affected and considers the relationship between sport mega events and the wider social sphere of global capitalism.
