Grassroots on the Pitch: TWT Football Final
Fans Supporting Foodbanks

Add to calendar

Football has always been a sport inextricably tied to so many of the traditional bases of the labour movement. However, the rise of unaccountable millionaire club owners has led to fan alienation that is being exploited by the far right. This is in direct opposition to inclusive socialist principles and must be challenged. In this special session, join Fans Supporting Foodbanks for a short discussion about fan ownership of clubs and how football can be a vehicle for solidarity and progressive politics, before witnessing the final of the inaugural TWT 5-a-side football tournament!
