FWF 2021: Whose Game Is It Anyway? Calendar

Football Writing Festival 2021 Whose Game Is It Anyway v2

The festival wraps up with a talk headed one of the game's great writers.

The critically acclaimed sports writer Michael Calvin returns to the museum on Friday 5 November, ruminating about the issues within his book, Whose Game Is It Anyway? Michael's latest work searches for meaning within a game increasingly dominated by greed and self-interest.

Accrington Stanley owner Andy Holt, Phil Young, Chair of the Shakers Community at the fan-owned Bury AFC,  and former Manchester City coach Pete Lowe will be teaming up with Michael to ponder the soul and the future of the game.
