Road to World Cup 2010

I’m at the London College of Communication on Friday for the launch of the Road to World Cup 2010 project. The project, run with the Peninsula University in Cape Town, will reflect the experiences of journalism students following eight different clubs, four in Britain and four in South Africa, in the run-up to next year’s World Cup finals.

Tonight’s event tackles the theme of how the UK media covers African football, and features a panel including the BBC’s Shelley Alexander, Guardian football writer Paul Doyle, Kick it Out’s Danny Lynch, Voice sport editor Rodney Hinds and author Marvin Close. The discussion will be chaired by two of LCC’s very able foundation course sports journalists, Martin Hines and Colin Robertson, and has been organised by my hard-working colleague and Acting Course Director Carrie Dunn. The event starts at 7.30pm, and full details are at the link above. The blog is already up and running here.
