In episode three, former Sportfreunde Lotte, Bochum and Hallescher FC head coach Ismail Atalan and SC Sand head coach Nora Häuptle speak to James about what it's like to coach during the pandemic. 

Our second episode was with former player and current analyst Thomas Broich, who discussed how he believes the game has changed during the pandemic and how the future of football has been affected.

Our very first episode saw us chat to match-going fans in Germany, discuss their role in a pandemic, the big questions about being a fan and what lies ahead.

Project Fussball

Everyone knows who scored the winner on Saturday in the Bundesliga and which games Germany have before the European Championships, but what about the bigger topics in the world's most popular sport?

Project Fussball is a podcast dedicated to the stories, not scorelines, reasons, not results of German football.

In Germany, football is deeply woven into the tapestry of society, so what are the stories beyond the score lines? Who should we be listening to? And what must we learn from them?

We have a whole range of topics that we are ready to dive into. A new episode will drop every two weeks, and each series will consist of five episodes.

Writer, commentator and podcaster James Thorogood will host the show, but the stars of Project Fussball will be the guests and experts as we look to dive into a diverse range of topics with a variety of voices.

You can get in touch with the show via Twitter, Instagram.

Join us as we explore the role and responsibilities of football and tackle the issues changing the face of German football culture.
