Follow the intersection of the beautiful game with money and power in The Age Of Football
For one evening we’ll be leaving the world of club football briefly behind to look at the global phenomenon of football with award winning sports writer and broadcaster David Goldblatt who will be talking about his indepth, original and mesmerising book The Age Of Football on 30 Sept at 7.30pm.
A masterful and mesmerising exploration of society, politics and economics, the book charts football’s phenomenal ascent, its economic power and politicisation, and presents a startling portrait of the 21st century through the prism of the game, from prisons in Uganda, footballing presidencies in South American and even the Arab Spring.

Hands up if this year’s Women’s World Cup had you glued to the TV while simultaneously thinking ‘They *really are* good/they could teach the guys a thing or two?’
Award winnings sports writer Carrie Dunn is an expert on women’s football and she’ll be joining us on 4 Nov at 7.30 to pose the question: is women’s football in England really growing from top to bottom or is it all just PR?
Carrie’s latest book, The Pride of The Lionesses, provides a timely analysis of the women’s game, looking at the national team’s drama-laden prep for this summer’s tournament, the FA upheavals which brought renewed moving of goalposts within the game, and looks at what’s next for the sport.
