As part of the OpenCampus series ‘Hull: Culture, History, Place’, Professor Tony Collins asks, and answers, just how did sport become so important to Hull?
This talk traces the history of sport in Hull from the early 1800s to present day, exploring the rise of rugby, football, cricket and athletics and many other sports that the city has taken to its heart. It looks at how women in Hull have participated and highlights the role that immigrants have played in creating the city’s sporting culture. Most importantly, it asks what makes sport in Hull so important to so many people.
