The Age of Football, Part 1

Screen Shot of Conference Call

The first session of FSF’s five-part series on David Goldblatt’s new book, The Age of Football: The Global Game in the Twenty-first Century [UK here / US here] attracted 40 participants.

The inaugural 90-minute conversation with the author was moderated by Peter Alegi. It focused on the book’s Introduction and Chapter 1 titled “The Living and the Dead: Afro Football Fever.”

The second session is set for June 16 (2pm US Eastern, 7pm UK). We will read and discuss Chapters 2-3 (on the Middle East and South America), with Danyel Reiche and Alex Galarza serving as our able moderators.
