Football: the global game

Came across the GLOBAL GAME website / BLOG which looks at the sport of football and features a range of articles, images and statistics.
Worth exploring for those looking at the GEOGRAPHY OF SPORT.

If you are using SPORT as a context for teaching some geographical concepts, check out the Geographical Association's new PLANET SPORT website.
En route back from Devon, met up with Dan Ellison, and had a sneak preview of his Mexico City Urban Earth walk, which he had recently completed. The day after I spoke to him he flew to India: fuelled by red wine and pepperoni pizza... URBAN EARTH has taken up a lot of Dan's summer.

He has now completed his walk across Mumbai.
Check out a sample walk, which maps out Salisbury's ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT by watching the YouTube clip below...

Thanks very much for the link to the Global Game. Offering education and appreciation for geography indeed form part of our mission, and it is an honor to be recognized in this way. Football is a great connector ... making connections is our primary concern. Cheers!
