Joe Kennedy, author of Games Without Frontiers (http://repeaterbooks.com/games-without-frontiers-by-joe-kennedy/) and Mark Perryman, author of 1966 and Not All That (http://repeaterbooks.com/books/1966-and-not-all-that/) will speak at the event.
Even with Jeremy Corbyn at Number Ten – the address not the squad number – short of nationalising football the prospects for change remain remote. Any such policies from above to shift football back to its roots as the ‘people’s game’ are of course welcome but this session develops instead ‘football from below.’ Using an imaginative combination of spoken word, visuals and participative discussion aided by practical grassroots examples we will be challenging the idea of football as a game to watch and consume by reimagining football as a social movement. Presented by Philosophy Football.
Chaired by Mark Perryman, co-founder the self-styled ‘sporting outfitters of intellectual distinction, aka Philosophy Football.
