Football

More than a Game

We recommend a broad interest in football as a contemporary phenomenon - you will cover some of the top football clubs, grass-roots football projects, the FIFA World Cup, and the Homeless World Cup. What resources will I need for this class? All you need is internet access to join in the discussions and time to work through each week’s content. You can use the hashtag #FLfooty to talk about this course on social media.
