Using quantitative data on player movement as well as interviews with agents, players, coaches, and team staff, The Global Migration of Soccer Players compares and contrasts the movement of highly skilled athletes to more general migrant streams. Grounded in the sociology of migration, the book addresses two major questions. First, why do players leave their country of birth to seek opportunities abroad? Second, once players find themselves living and working in a new country, how do they adapt or adjust to these unfamiliar surroundings?
