An affecting and deeply subjective representation of the emotions and atmosphere that characterize the confluence of sport, event, time, place, and people in a dedicated football - soccer - pub in Chicago. As the sport begins to - finally - gain visibility in America, Alamo & Costello's The Globe presents a compelling document of how certain places and people helped to change its perception and spectatorship in this part of the world at this moment in time.
- Dominic Molon, Curator, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago
If soccer is religion, The Globe is one of its temples. Chester Alamo & Costello's book captures the beauty and elation of the believers. His photographs tell you why soccer matters.
- Aleksandar Hemon, Internationally recognized author and football enthusiast
The Globe is a place to watch football (soccer). When there are no matches being played, it looks like one of many neighborhood watering holes where people meet, eat, drink, laugh, shed tears, talk sports, dance, and drink some more. And maybe then the name of the pub or being in a world city like Chicago wouldn't even matter. But during a match, The Globe becomes just what the name says: the churning, whirling center of the universe where supporters from Munich and Milan, Glasgow and Guadalajara, Seattle and St. Petersburg, Barcelona and Birmingham, Norwich and New York, Capetown and Chicago and, of course, Liverpool and Manchester cheer, cry, chant, and curse, then pray that stoppage time will be enough for a miracle.
- Chester Alamo & Costello, 2010
