It's almost been a full year since the COVID pandemic forced clubs to close their turnstiles. Players are plying their trade in front of little more than cameras and club staff, while supporters remain unable to share the matchday experience in person.

As we approach the first anniversary of football's lockdown, our expert panel will be discussing the impact of COVID on mental health in football from the perspective of fans and footballers alike. We will also be considering football's response to the crisis, the success stories that have emerged in adverse times, and what more can be done within the game.

Heart North East's Emil Franchi will be joined by Crystal Palace Women forward Amber Keegan Stobbs; FSA Chief Executive Kev Miles; Get Your Head in the Game author Dominic Stevenson; cognitive therapist Saiqa Naz; and Andy Smith, one of the men behind Everton in the Community's Tackling the Blues project.

This talk will take place on Crowdcast. Register now for notifications and updates ahead of kick-off:
