And it was Beautiful: The Rebirth of Leeds United with Phil Hay

When Marcelo Bielsa was appointed head coach of Leeds United in the summer of 2018, the club had just finished thirteenth in the Championship – their fifteenth consecutive season outside the top flight – and were defined as much by their excesses and disasters off the pitch as their lack of success on it. Bielsa changed everything.

Join journalist and football obsessive Phil Hay as he documents the fortunes of Leeds United under Bielsa, weaving in stories of crises from the club’s purgatory in the English Football League. He’ll share a comprehensive and compelling portrait of an enigmatic manager whose values are the antithesis of everything that has previously gone wrong at Leeds. This event promises to pull back the curtain on Bielsa’s innovative tactical methods, his unconventional yet highly productive relationship with owner Andrea Radrizzani and Director of Football Victor Orta, his intensely loyal backroom team and the extraordinary cultural impact Bielsa has had on the city of Leeds.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear this exclusive behind-the-scenes story of how Bielsa guided Leeds back to the promised land of the Premier League, the result of which is a unique and beautiful love affair that has made dreams come true.

A fascinating evening for Leeds United and football fans alike.
