A History of Football in 100 Objects

Following Neil MacGregor’s groundbreaking A History of the World in 100 Objects comes A History of Football in 100 Objects, a book that will celebrate the best – and worst – of the Beautiful Game since the formation of the Football Association in 1863 (memo to Sepp Blatter: England invented football not the Chinese).

In this important, and only mildly irreverent book, Bill Mann has selected one hundred objects, each of which gives an intimate glimpse into how the game has been shaped over a century and a half: the letter from a Scottish draper that changed English football; the old sock that helped Pele become the world's greatest player and the prawn sandwich that symbolises the malaise of the modern game.

Together they relate the larger history of football, revealing who we are by looking at what we have argued about in the pub.
