The English Game

The English Game: Netflix

It’s the 1870s, it’s the north of England and it’s the start of football as we know it. The English Game is a six-part drama from Netflix charting the origins of the beautiful game and how those involved in its creation reached across the class divide to establish football as the world’s most popular sport. The series is written and executive produced by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes, and several key Yorkshire filming locations provide the period feel that Downton fans have fallen for.
