  Work Details  
  A reconstruction of the notorious 100th FA Cup final between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City. The match ended in a draw when Manchester City’s Tony Hutchinson scored for both sides. The 1-1 draw forced the first ever replay at Wembley. This reconstruction of the 1981 FA Cup Final was replayed in real time using a customised football and two teams. During the game the players adhered to and repeated the actual events by following an audio recording of the match’s original radio commentary, which was playing back from within the football itself.
