Project Restart: From Prem to the Parks, How Football Came Out of Lockdown [9781785318009]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
It's an embarrassing truth for many football fans that it was only when professional football was eventually forced to close down that we recognised Covid-19 as a genuine threat to our way of life. Maybe just as shameful was the fact that once lockdown became normalised, it didn't take long for chatter to start about when the game might begin again. This book begins by charting what happened in the weeks leading up to that point, placing football in the context of furloughs, some new-found community awareness and dithering politicians. At the heart of the book are seven case studies of teams. From Burnley in the Premier League, down through the divisions to grassroots football, Project Restart looks at the hopes and fears of supporters and the actions of those charged with keeping their beloved clubs afloat. It looks at how we almost adjusted to the eerie echo of games on TV with no crowds and finishes by trying to address the biggest question in town: what will football look like in a post-Covid future?
AUTHOR: This is Jon Berry's second book about football. In Hugging Strangers he charted the lows and lowers of life as a Birmingham City supporter. A retired teacher and now part-time university lecturer, he has also written three books about education and teaching and is a contributor to the educational press. He writes a regular blog on politics and current affairs, squeezing in football wherever he can.
