No Live Football? FSF to the Rescue!

While football is on pause in this time of pandemic and social distancing, the Football Scholars Forum and the Society for American Soccer History intend to bridge our physical distance with an online discussion devoted to The English Game, the Netflix miniseries that made its debut on March 20, 2020. 

Join other fĂștbologists as we discuss the cinematic and historic merits (and demerits) of this deep dive into the origins of the modern game. Spoiler alert: all six episodes of season one will be discussed. David Kilpatrick and Tom McCabe will moderate the session. Kickoff is set for the traditional UK match time  of 3:00pm (London time) on Saturday, March 28 (11:00am US EDT). 

As usual, the 90-minute teleconference session will be conducted via Zoom. RSVP to Peter Alegi ( or Alex Galarza ( to receive a Zoom invitation. Another email will be sent to confirmed participants by Friday, March 27.
