Explore the Christian heritage of the English Premier League.
Did you know that nearly a third of the clubs that have played in the English FA Premier League owe their existence to a church? Today very little is known about their pioneering founders. Football historian Peter Lupson sets the record straight as he tells the story of twelve of these clubs and the people who have made an exceptional contribution to the beautiful game. In this 11-part documentary series he takes us to the places where the clubs began over a century ago, and also visits the stadiums they occupy today. Thank God for Football! presents the challenging and uplifting stories of some remarkable individuals who were moved to show God’s love for those rejected by society.
