Rofe and Postlethwaite explore the relationship between politics and sports by looking at the evolution of the relationship and considering the intersectionality of politics and sports across a range of development issues. They use several examples to illustrate these points, including the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and relations between world leaders, the International Olympic Committee, and the successful United 2026 bid to host the FIFA World Cup.
