Explore the Christian heritage of the English Premier League.Did you know that nearly a third of the clubs that have played in the English FA Premier League owe their existence to a church? Today very little is known about their pioneering founders. Football historian Peter Lupson sets the record straight as he tells the story of twelve of these clubs and the people who have made an exceptional contribution to the beautiful game. In this 11-part documentary series he takes us to the places where the clubs began over a century ago, and also visits the stadiums they occupy today. Thank God for Football! presents the challenging and uplifting stories of some remarkable individuals who were moved to show God’s love for those rejected by society.
Whether you're a Mann City supporter or a fan of the LA Galaxy or just a general sports fan, you'll love this inside look at the game.
The twelve clubs covered:
• Aston Villa
• Birmingham City
• Bolton Wanderers
• Manchester City
• Queens Park Rangers
• Swindon Town
• Tottenham Hotspur

Thank God for Football - DVD – Richard and Linda D, 08/30/2014
Thank God for Football is a fascinating look into how Christian churches brought youth and young adults into belief, through a focus on sports (in this case, not American football, but soccer). The emphasis on the film was the early days of soccer, with notice given as to how the teams still exist today. We especially enjoyed the recap on individuals teams, which is found in the Special Features section. Enjoy!
