You can now watch the first two Live Talk Webinars accompanying our digital exhibition “Origins: Pre-Histories of Football”. Don’t forget to sign up for the remaining two webinars on Greco-Roman and Meso-American ball games.
Live Talk Webinar: Cuju
The Chinese ball game of cuju has a history dating back over 2,000 years. It is little played today, but its vibrant history lives on. In this one-hour webinar hosted by the FIFA Museum, experts Michael Wood (BBC Broadcaster and Historian) and Prof. Yang-wen Zheng (Chinese History, University of Manchester) search for the origins of football in China and compare the cultural impact of cuju and modern football.
