The Politics of South African Football tells the story of people whose declaration “no normal sport in an abnormal society” proved to be a powerful antidote to the state’s assurances that “all was well”.

Koonyaditse describes the tough journey which culminated in that memorable Saturday of May 15, 2004 – the day South Africa, and indeed Africa, for the first time won the right to host the nations of the world at the FIFA World Cup in 2010.

As a seasoned sportswriter and commentator Koonyaditse’s skill in telling this historic story is enriched by his easy command of the subject of football.
