Publisher Description

'This isn't just football, it's Discworld football. Or, to borrow another phrase, it's about life, the Universe and everything' The Times

The Discworld is very much like our own - if our own were to consist of a flat planet balanced on the back of four elephants which stand on the back of a giant turtle, that is . . .

Football has come to the ancient city of Ankh-Morpork. And now, the wizards of Unseen University must win a football match, without using magic, so they're in the mood for trying everything else.

This is not going to be a gentleman’s game.

The prospect of the Big Match draws in a street urchin with a wonderful talent for kicking a tin can, a maker of jolly good pies, a dim but beautiful young woman, who might just turn out to be the greatest fashion model there has ever been, and the mysterious Mr Nutt (and no one knows anything much about Mr Nutt, not even Mr Nutt) but there is something powerful, and dark, locked away inside him.

As the match approaches, secrets are forced into the light and four lives will be entangled and changed for ever. Here we go, here we go, here we go!

The Discworld novels can be read in any order but Unseen Academicals is the seventh book in the Wizards series.

The game according to Pratchett's Rules

Dear Sir Terry, thank you for the wonderful wealth of humour, delight and social observation you have given to this world. You are a living world treasure. I've just started this book and am already taken with it. I was incredibly touched by snuff, and am so glad to see goblins becoming a bigger part of the disc world landscape. Hope to see you in Australia again sometime.
