From the publisher (source: The Internet Book List):

FOOTBALL HAS COME TO THE ANCIENT CITY OF ANKH-MORPORK

- not the old-fashioned, grubby pushing and shoving, but the new, fast football with pointy hats for goalposts and balls that go gloing. And now the wizards of Unseen University must win a football match without using magic, so they're going to try everything else.

The Big Match draws in an urchin with a gift for kicking a tin can, a maker of jolly good pies, a dim but beautiful young woman, who might turn out to be the greatest fashion model ever, and the mysterious Mr Nutt. (No one knows much about Mr Nutt, not even Mr Nutt.)

As the match approaches, four lives are changed for ever. Because the thing about football - is that it is not just about football.
