Play within the Australian soccer League isn't what it used to be. on the game’s founding, Australian soccer used to be precisely what the AFL’s Latin motto tells us it truly is at the present time – ‘the video game of the folk, for the people’. In its adolescence it used to be performed and watched by means of Australians who enjoyed the sport simply because they understood the way in which it was performed. It used to be made via them, within the photo in their neighborhood. in spite of the fact that, within the age of commercialisation and professionalism, play within the AFL has replaced. The AFL is now a tremendous enterprise. Play is much less spontaneous and extra dependent. it truly is now extra organised and measured. Footy Grounds to Grandstands examines the real hyperlink among play within the AFL and its groups, and explores how play and neighborhood have replaced because the AFL has reworked right into a multi-billion-dollar business. To do that, Footy Grounds to Grandstands attracts at the principles of theorists and students in addition to the insights and reactions of the folks who subject so much – the fans.
