In 2018, Stuart Roy Clarke published The Game – a book to accompany a major exhibition of his work at the National Football Museum in Manchester. The exhibition and book were about the importance of football in our national culture: the ages of football and how we got here. It was the basis of his photographic journey and was warmly received. So warmly that is sold out within four months. The exhibition at the NFM has already attracted over 500,000 visitors.
The Game Revisited is the original 2018 book with additional text from Stuart and John Williams of The University of Leicester plus more of his defining photographs.

About Stuart Roy Clarke
Stuart Roy Clarke started documenting football following disasters at Bradford, Heysel and Hillsborough. He began photographing the game from the supporters’ perspective – capturing their joy, humour, despair and humanity. He had access to all the clubs through his work for the Football Trust and Football Foundation. The result of this 30 year odyssey is a collection of stunning images about our obsession for football. Stuart’s work is on permanent display at the National Football Museum and his distinct and unique take on what is happening off the pitch has been embraced by The Premier League, The Football League, UEFA, FIFA and The Football Supporters Federation amongst many other official bodies. The Game Revisited is a magnificent collection of images that will fascinate anyone interested in our national game.
