INSIDE ISSUE 29: THE KITS SPECIAL

A VISUAL FEAST

The front section of the magazine is a treat for your eyes. There’s an exclusive photo story from the frontlines of Mali, some beautiful black and white photos of Brighton back in The Goldstone days, and our favourite boots, balls, books, and other recommendations in ‘GEAR’ and ‘STUFF’.

THE BEST LONGFORM FOOTBALL WRITING ON THE PLANET.

This is where the big bits go. Inside, you’ll find an Owen Blackhurst odyssey around the Netherlands to explore Ruud Gullit’s legacy, an undercover story from a fake shirt seller, James Bird tracing the history of the world’s first gay football team through their kits, and you’ll find 20 pages of people we love—from Charlie Cooper to Lee Trundle to Flo Lloyd-Hughes to Cold War Steve—telling us about their favourite football shirts.

TRAVEL, FASHION, DREAMS.

Three features, three adventures. There’s the brilliant Jacqui McAssey on AI and the future of football fashion shoots, there’s a trip around the world via eight stories of people searching for the sweaty matchworn shirts of their heroes, and there’s the latest addition to the 101 Things To Do In Football Before You Die vault.
