Abstract

This chapter offers an analysis of the changing nature of corruption in sport. It is presented in three stages; the influence of gambling on amateur and professional football, the manipulation of sport as a form of state corruption and national propaganda, and increased commercialisation of sport and sporting bodies’ corruption.
