David Conn – The Fall of the House of FIFA

November 7, 2017 @ 19:30 - 22:30

The Grammar School at Leeds are proud to host David Conn in association with Milim, Festival of Jewish Words for All.

David Conn, award-winning journalist for the Guardian newspaper and one of the foremost investigative writers on football will be presenting his insight into the world of football.

In his new book, The Fall Of The House Of FIFA, David exposes the extraordinary history and scale of the corruption within the organisation that controls world football. He includes biographies of the key figures implicated in the scandal and details the allegations against some of the most famous footballers on the planet including Franz Beckenbauer and Michel Platini.  He puts the allegations to Blatter himself in a unique interview.
