Football’s footprint

30 May, 2019

• MASSIVE coverage by Dan Carrier and Richard Osley of football matches and fans travel to Madrid and Baku. But not a word from either writer about the carbon cost of these ventures.

Arsenal and Liverpool have got perfectly good grounds of their own that could and should be used. What is the environmental policy that leads to this unnecessary mass air travel at a time of climate crisis? Or does football trump such minor considerations?
