Description: Drawn from Calvin's experience as an award-winning sportswriter covering every major sports event over 40 years in more than 80 countries, this deeply personal book takes you on a tour of the world's greatest sporting occasions. Part memoir, part manifesto, this is sport as you've never seen it before.

Football has never seemed so distant from its fans.

Many have been alienated by the greed and shameless self-interest of the Premier League, and no one can predict how the global game will look post-pandemic.

In Whose Game Is It Anyway?, Sunday Times best-selling author Michael Calvin searches for a reason to believe.

Written at the height of the Covid-19 crisis, the book is a thought-provoking, deeply personal account of the role sport - and particularly football - plays in everyday life.

Part memoir, part manifesto, it takes the reader on a tour of the world's greatest sporting occasions and into its outposts in sub-Saharan Africa, the Amazon Basin and the Southern Ocean.

Drawn from Calvin's experience as an award-winning sportswriter, covering every major sports event over 40 years in more than 80 countries, it offers first-hand insight into such icons as Muhammad Ali, Maradona and Sir Bobby Charlton.

With settings ranging from a jungle clearing to a township in apartheid South Africa, this is sport as you've never seen it before.
