Black Socks, Black Cleats And Black Shin Guards

Our enthusiasm for the sport aside, this seems to go beyond even the 1919 Black Sox Scandal:

Football is being used as a vehicle for money laundering, according to an agency responsible for tracking the proceeds of crime.

The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) report warns football is at risk from criminals buying clubs, transferring players, and betting on the sport.

It also provides a rare insight into tax evasion in British football.

The report also raises concerns over human trafficking, corruption, drug trafficking and tax crime in the sport.

One thought on “Black Socks, Black Cleats And Black Shin Guards”

  1. Not surprising. FIFA is already incredibly corrupt, there’s no question. Doesn’t change the fact that it’s still a compelling game!
