Skip to 0 minutes and 5 secondsWelcome to week six, the final week, as we look at football finances, football governance and ownership, and a peer-review exercise. We've covered a lot of information over the last five or six weeks, and in this final week, we share with you some information about the changing nature of football finances. We also ask you to consider about the question of ownership of football clubs-- in other words, the governance of football clubs-- and who should have a say? Who are the stakeholders? Should the supporters have more say in the running of local clubs? We will look at different models of club ownership. We ask you to write a short answer to why you think football is more than a game.

Skip to 1 minute and 15 secondsUse the information that you've gathered over the last five or six weeks to share with your peers why you think football is more than a game. I have certainly enjoyed working with you, the team has certainly enjoyed working with you, and the University of Edinburgh has certainly enjoyed working with you during this six-week course. But above all, I hope you will continue to think about why football is more than a game and continue to reflect upon the passion, the power, and the influence of football in the world today.
