Captured by three photographers across different decades, the exhibition will offer a unique insight into how the locale has evolved alongside the might of the now multimillion pound football industry and serve as a springboard to discussions about a wider fan culture that encompasses music, fashion and politics.
This exhibition seeks to explore the ritualistic behaviour of football fan culture and its development from the game of the working class in the 1980s to the riches of the Premier League today.
Football is a global passion that connects people from all walks of life. It is a common thread that can be an important ritual spanning across cultures, religion, gender and race. Football is synonymous with Merseyside; it is one of the most profitable cultural attractions that Liverpool has to offer, with a worldwide fan base that make regular pilgrimages to Anfield and Goodison Park.
