Football: A Brief History by Alfie Allen

Alfie Allen loves the beautiful game. He played at Arsenal’s Youth Camp, regularly turned out for celebrity charity football matches, until he damaged his knee, and even sang backing vocals on his dad Keith’s World Cup 1998 England team song Vindaloo. Alfie grew up in the Premier League era and wants to find out more about the history of the world’s most popular sport. Football: A Brief History By Alfie Allen follows the Game of Thrones star as he sets off around the UK to explore the defining moments and turning points in the establishment and growth of football in the UK.

Featured interviews include: Alfie’s dad Keith Allen, Game Of Thrones star and Celtic fan Daniel Portman, former chairman of the FA Greg Dyke, PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor, former England captain Sol Campbell, champions league winner Andy Cole, playing legend Cyrille Regis and the current women’s England football team.
