Football is a truly global sport; a game that can mean so much, to so many. In a World Cup year, when all eyes turn to Brazil, The Pride and the Passion is an exhibition curated by QUAD which documents the essence of âthe football crowd' and âthe football icon', documenting the energy, politics, tribalism, and zeal of the fan, and the status and impact of the hero figure, through a range of film, sculptural and photographic works.
The Pride and the Passion also features a substantial amount of archival images and artefacts relating to Derby County Football Club, one of the oldest clubs in the world and one of the founder members of the Football League, in collaboration with The Derby County Collection.
The Pride and the Passion is an exhibition in more than two halves, examining football home and away.
