9780230239739: Star-Spangled Soccer: The Selling, Marketing and Management of Soccer in the USA

Star-Spangled Soccer charts America’s 25-year journey to becoming a soccer nation, the key business, decisions, personalities, and events that shaped its growth, and the developing perfect soccer storm that will propel its unstoppable march forward. The book takes its lead from a single premise that the granting of the 1994 World Cup to the United States set in motion a chain of events that has redefined soccer in America forever, good and bad, up and down, but ultimately positioned to become a major force in the rapidly changing American sports landscape. Drawn from a 20-year career as a senior executive in the American soccer market and supported by first person interviews and insights with all the key personalities and decision makers, Star Spangled Soccer is a must read for anyone wanting to understand the American soccer market, where it has come from, and why it is positioned for tremendous growth over the next 10 years.

Sunil Gulati, President, United States Soccer Federation

'As someone who witnessed, and participated in, the development of professional soccer in the US, Gary offers a true insider's perspective. This book should be read by anyone seeking to better understand the business of the game.'

Mark Abbott, President Major League Soccer

'This historic book provides comprehensive context on how American soccer has developed during the last 25 years. Hopkins knows his subject all too well and makes it come to life in Star-Spangled Soccer. Easy to read and powerful!'

Rick Burton, David Faulk Distinguished Professor of Sport Management Syracuse University

'Star-Spangled Soccer is a great read . . . from his inside seat Gary has been an eye witness to it all. He points to the bold decisions and strong leadership necessary for soccer to get a foothold in America. His account is balanced and well constructed. As I read his book I came to the conclusion that Gary gets it.'

Hank Steinbrecher, General Secretary, US Soccer 1990-1999

'Fascinating and accurate. . . Gary has tirelessly researched the development of soccer in the USA documenting each step along the way with the people who lived those moments . . . he clearly shows World Cup USA 94 helped create a generation of soccer-loving Americans and delineates the enormous impact a future US-Hosted World Cup would have on the sport here.'

David Downs, Executive Director, World Cup USA 2018-2020 Bid

'A fascinating and informative insight . . . if you want to know why David Beckham went to play in Los Angeles , this book will tell you. Gary Hopkins has had a ringside seat on the business of Soccer in the USA for over two decades . Indeed for much of the time he has been in the ring himself. His book is well written, informative and very readable.'

Matthew Wheeler, Worldwide Managing Director, Octagon 1997-2001

'A thoughtful and impeccably researched study.' - FourFourTwo Magazine

'It is impossible to begin to understand the complicated tapestry that is soccer in the United States without understanding its history. Gary Hopkins' book provides first-hand insights into that history from those who know because they, like Gary, helped form it. I recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in soccer in the US - its recent past, certainly, but more importantly its present and its future.' - Ivan Gazidis, CEO, Arsenal FC
