Qatar Presentation by Pamela Erskine-Loftus and Jack Thomas

Football. Soccer. Kurat Al Qadam. Fútbol. The names vary, but the game is the same. It’s played everywhere. In every village and city. In every country. On every continent. Love it or loath it, football is the most popular sport on the planet. It is considered a microcosm of our world: an avatar of social dilemmas, mirroring highs and lows, challenges and successes, struggles and triumphs, wins and losses. The media coverage of the game has reinforced and globalized these human sentiments. However, what would we find if we dared to look behind this glossy cover?
