The book that set the benchmark for books on Australian football, Matthew Hall's The Away Game is one of the most popular books of its kind and has even been made into an eponymous documentary. 


First published in 2000, this 20th anniversary edition contains an updated Introduction from Matthew, an updated Epilogue as well as a new photographic collection. 


Written with a genuine passion for the game, The Away Game gets beyond the usual stories and takes us to the soul of Australians plying their trade overseasfrom the English Premier League to the Bundesliga, and from Serie A to Wollongong. Hall travelled around the world for more than a year meeting everyone from players whose names are not known to use struggling in little known competitions, through to multimillion dollar superstars such as Mark Viduka and Harry Kewell.
