Football and culture

Football and geography are, of course, connected...
Geography of Sport units frequently explore the locations of stadia, impact of the sport on globalisation, industry and the environment, and also the benefits and issues surrounding global or international sporting events such as the World Cup 2010.

Football is also a crucial part of popular culture in many countries of the world, inspiring passion and also a lot of violence in some cities.

This is, of course, just a chance to mention a little football result that happened yesterday...

Marching on together....

Keep an eye out for some resources for the World Cup 2010 on the Geographical Association's website (and on this blog)
