#UNCON38 Un-Convention Football

Event brief

Un-convention Football is a special event looking at the role football plays in our communities. It will examine ‘the beautiful game’ not only in terms of what happens on the pitch, but also the rich culture that surrounds it. From goalposts painted on the walls of back alleys to the bated breath of 80,000 fans at the San Siro, football is much more than the sum of its parts, it is woven into the fabric of the country, as it is in many countries around the world.
