HUB: TALK - Football is the ballet of the Masses
The Garment Factory, 10 Montrose Street, G11RE
With a capacity of over 100,000 people, Hampden Park was the biggest football stadium ever built when it opened in 1903. In 1947, 149,415 people turned up there to watch Scotland beat England 3:1 - still a record attendance for a football match anywhere in Europe. So why Glasgow? And why association football? In this talk Fergus Sutherland will discuss the wider socio-economic story about the development of football and its links to industry and urbanisation.
