BBC Radio 4 – Making History: festive football

Broadcast on Boxing Day, this Christmas-themed episode of BBC Radio 4’s Making History programme featured a look at festive football. I spoke to Helen Castor about the tradition of playing football on Christmas Day and Boxing Day, in support of my book Savage Enthusiasm: A History of Football Fans.

You can listen to the programme via the BBC website.
