  • "Football has come to the ancient city of Ankh-Morpork - not the old-fashioned pushing and shoving, but the new, fast football with pointy hats for goalposts and balls that go GLOING when dropped. Now the wizards of Unseen University must win a football match without using magic, so they'll try everything else. The Big Match draws in a street urchin with a talent for kicking a tin can, a maker of jolly good pies, a dim, but beautiful young woman, and the mysterious Mr Nutt. (No one knows much about Mr Nutt, not even poor Mr Nutt.) As the match approaches, four lives are entangled and changed forever. Because the thing about football - the IMPORTANT thing about football - is that it is not just about football."

  • "The wizards at Ankh-Morpork's Unseen University are renowned for many things'wisdom, magic, and their love of teatime'but athletics is most assuredly not on the list. And so when Lord Ventinari, the city's benevolent tyrant, strongly suggests to Archchancellor Mustrum Ridcully that the university revive an erstwhile tradition and once again put forth a football team composed of faculty, students, and staff, the wizards of UU find themselves in a quandary. To begin with, they have to figure out just what it is that makes this sport'soccer with a bit of rugby thrown in'so popular with Ankh-Morporkians of all ages and social strata. Then they have to learn how to play it. Oh, and on top of that, they must win a football match without using magic. Meanwhile, Trev (a handsome street urchin and a right good kicker) falls hard for kitchen maid Juliet (beautiful, dim, and perhaps the greatest fashion model there ever was), and Juliet's best pal, UU night cook Glenda (homely, sensible, and a baker of jolly good pies) befriends the mysterious Mr. Nutt (about whom no one knows very much, including Mr. Nutt, which is worrisome . . .). As the big match approaches, these four lives are entangled and changed forever. Because the thing about football'the most important thing about football'is that it is never just about football."@en
