Since 1990, football history has become increasingly important within the field of sport science, yet few studies have centred on the Europeanization of the game from the interwar period onwards. This period saw the creation of a sovereign institution dedicated to European football, the establishment of specific rules about players transfers and contracts and, in particular, the development of competitions. This book examines the development of European football between 1905 and 1995 from a transnational perspective. It offers a space for discussion to both early-career and established historians from a range of different countries, leading to a better understanding of the crucial turning points in the Europeanization of the game. The volume aims to promote valuable new reflections on the role of football in the European integration process.

The importance of this work must be highlighted first for its abundant use of documentation from a wide range of archives, some of which have not been previously consulted. Furthermore, it must be commended for its insightful analysis of European football from a more transnational perspective, an aspect that should serve to guide and stimulate further research into this subject. (Juan Antonio Simon, Journal of Sport History 45/3 2018)
