Abstract: The book titled Foul! The Secret of World of FIFA: Bribes, Voted Rigging and Ticket Scandals written by Andrew Jennings revealed signs of chaos of hidden rules behind international football political crises. Highly cen-tralized power, individual greed for inappropriate wealth accumulation, asymmetrical gaming and inadequate legal sanctions are causes for the formation of hidden rules. Strictly controlling profit making behaviors, rationalizing re-source distributing rights, speeding up the development of democratic legal governance, intensifying media opinion monitoring, and trying the practicing of global governance, are inevitable ways to the reform of international foot-ball politics.
