Bamboo Goalposts: One Man's Quest to Teach the People's Republic of China to Love Football
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungMore than two decades ago Rowan Simons moved to China, and soon after he began working to expose the country to the social and health benefits of amateur soccer. As he soon learned, this was no easy task, especially in a country where it is illegal for more than 11 people to congregate for the purposes of a recreational sporting activity. In this humorous and affectionate account, Rowan recalls the various successes and failures of his efforts to encourage his adopted country to embrace the beautiful game, and depicts contemporary Chinese culture in a clear and engaging light. Despite various setbacks, Rowan managed to build a playing field and clubhouses, and currently runs Club Football, a steadily growing amateur league.
