Get some chalk on your boots! The sounding cultures of football
Get some chalk on your boots! investigates football through an exploration of its sounding cultures: from the ephemeral football soundscapes of the parish council pitches of South Oxfordshire to the terraces of the Stadio Mario Rigamonti, home of Brescia 1911, currently playing in Italy’s Serie B; the terrace culture of Coventry City; the sound of training sessions at amateur clubs in Portugal; and the deafening voice of the popular media. The exhibition runs in parallel with the 2018 FIFA World Cup and is accompanied by a Sound Diaries conference examining the everyday sounds of football culture.
Please note the exhibition will close at 12 noon on Monday 9th July due to essential building maintenance. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
