The English Premiership (EPL) through the lens of Marx’s Critique of Capitalist Political Economy

September 10 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A message from our education working group: We are currently working on a series on “Great Revolutions” and a series on “Basic Marxist concepts”, as well as a number of debates and sessions on other interesting topics. We will run educational webinars every Thursday at 6 PM.

We are restarting our education programme on September 10 with a fascinating session on football and Marxism, presented by economist and author Peter Kennedy.

Elite football is a topsy-turvy world even for capitalism, in which club owners shirk the moniker of ‘owner’ for that of ‘custodian’; where fans are simultaneously consumers of what they help produce; and where the principal source of labour power – elite players – share in most of the enormous spoils of surplus money flowing tsunami-like in, through and out of this industry.

This event invites discussion of the reasons for this topsy-turvy world through a prior examination of the zone of accumulation peculiar to elite football and splendidly epitomised by the EPL
