Putin, politics and football – World Cup special with David Goldblatt

  • 13/06/18
  • 18:30 - 20:00

Join the Bristol Cable for an evening in conversation with David Goldblatt, the award winning sports writer, broadcaster, sociologist, journalist and author.

From politics to big business, this World Cup will be about much more than just the beautiful game. We’ll be digging through the murky world of Putin’s Russia, crime, politics and football ahead of the World Cup kick off.

Russia’s image in the west has collapsed following wars in Ukraine and Syria, the Olympic doping scandal, alleged meddling in western elections, and for footy fans – concerns of hooliganism.

This exclusive talk is for anyone intrigued by one of the most controversial sporting events and political spectacles of our generation, never mind if you’re football crazy or don’t quite get the offside rule.

Tickets are available on Event bright
