From the great underdogs of Lancashire mill workers 150 years ago, to the giddying heights of Istanbul, each show is created by independent theatre companies and shows why football is always inspiring fayre.

The Giant Killers

Two Cities … Half the World Away

A Summer of footie on the stage at Liverpool's Royal Court

Beyond the Line Theatre Company presents this new show written by Nicky Allt. Set in a police station during the Europa League tie at Old Trafford in 2016, two lads, a Liverpool fan and a ManUtd fan, are stopped on their way to the game and taken into custody for the non-payment of fines.
