Militant Tendency pamphlet on ownership and control of football, and the distancing of the game from its working class roots. It argues that football has become separated from local communities and the fans by big business and property tycoons. One of the policies in 'Militant's football charter' is for clubs "to be brought under the democratic, elected control of fans, players, club staff and locally elected government". The post-Hillsborough introduction of all-seater stadiums is also criticised.
