LondonEnglandFans host final World Cup forum
LondonEnglandFans are hosting their final World Cup Fans Forum at the Offside Bar in London this evening.
The forum will be attended by Chuck Korr and Marvin Close, authors of ‘More than Just a Game: Football v Apartheid’, the incredible story of how prisoners on the notorious Robben Island defied the authorities to organise their own football league.
Chuck’s film of the book will be shown on BBC as part of their World Cup coverage, and the forum will be showing extracts and hearing from the two authors on the story.
The forum will also be attended by Steve Bloomfield, author of the new book ‘Africa United: How Football Explains Africa’.
Former Africa correspondent of The Independent newspaper, Steve will be providing an insight into what hosting the World Cup means to the continent.
From South Africa, Chris Bolsmann, editor of South Africa and the Global Game will also be on the panel to talk about the modern state of South African football.
The forum is free to attend and starts at 7pm, with food available from 6pm at the Offside Bar, 271 City Road, London EC1.
