The Game: Football's Future and its Past - in Pictures

A picture of football fans by Stuart Roy Clarke

Thursday 9 February 2017, 6 pm, Ken Edwards ground Floor Lecture Theatre 3, University of Leicester.

Join us for an evening discussion with our guest speaker Stuart Roy Clarke to assess Football's Future and its Past through pictures and discussion.

About the event

Football – is the game old, or is it new? Is it about the deep-rooted professional outfits, or new fan-owned clubs such as FC United? And what of the birth-pangs of the women’s game? Do we need top-down reform or organic change from below, inspired by the democracy that is social media? Can photography help? Stuart Roy Clarke addresses these and other questions through his pictures and discussion.

You can listen to  Stuart Clarke's short interview at BBC Radio Leicester by forwarding it to 40 minutes

Members of the public are warmly welcomed to this FREE public engagement event which takes place in the Ken Edwards Lecture Theatre 3, University of Leicester at 6pm, 9 February 2017. Please book your place using the web link:
