A New Formation: How Black Footballers Made the Modern Game

An original exploration of the ways in which leading Black British footballers have shaped the modern game. Tackling the big questions of representation and identity whilst acknowledging the influence a collective black identity has had on a very British sport.

Through a series of essays by a collection of culture writers, including Musa Okwonga, Aniefiok Ekpoudom and Jeanette Kwakye, A New Formation will examine and celebrate the variance found in Blackness. From Ian Wright's impact on contemporary Black culture to Anita Asante's compelling journey, by way of Andy Cole's experience as a child of Windrush generation parents.

A New Formation, places footballers into contexts larger than themselves, and each moving essay found in this anthology reveals the rich cultural tapestry of Black life in Britain, and the essential role that Black footballers - past and present - have played in constructing it.
