The National Football Museum is reopening on 27 May with the original Laws of the Game going on display.
Without this 1863 book, the world would not have its most popular sport. In this latest Create the Space talk, our expert panel will look at the often strained relationship between the laws of the game and its social purpose.
In the aftermath of the failed European Super League project, focus is on how law changes - historic and modern - have been driven by changing social values including the desire to combat discrimination.
The panel will be hosted by Florence Lloyd-Hughes and will feature Paul Elliott CBE (Chair of the FA's Inclusion Advisory Board and former Aston Villa & Chelsea player), Rebecca Welch (who this year became the first female referee to be appointed to an English Football League match), Jim Keoghan (author of Punk Football) and Alex Jackson (National Football Museum Curator).
The discussion with run for one-hour and there will be an opportunity for the audience to ask questions at the end. Book here.
