Memorable football goals by Richard Hincks

We recently came across a series of fine graphic prints by Manchester based designer, Richard Hincks (@RickHincks). Each depicts a significant goal in a team’s history simply by showing the path of the player and ball on the pitch. Simple and rather lovely. Get yourself one at www.Rincks.com.

New FIFA Museum omits references to corruption

After years of corruption amongst FIFA’s top executives, what better time than open a huge, £100 million museum to celebrate football’s governing body? Just opened in Zurich minutes from the hotel Baur au Lac, where seven FIFA officials were arrested in 2015 on charges of extortion, fraud and money laundering. And guess what? There’s no mention of any of their dodgy dealing in this glass and video palace. … Continue reading

Higher ticket prices = more tourists + selfies + half and half scarves

Stadiums will be filled with “tourists” waving “half and half scarves and taking selfies” if ticket prices rise further, warns Football Supporters’ Federation chairman Malcolm Clarke. Thousands of Liverpool fans walked out of their recent Premier League game against Sunderland at Anfield in protest at next season’s prices. The FSF is meeting fans’ groups to discuss further action, including a potential … Continue reading

Half and half scarves plumb new depths

Half and half scarves make no sense to us. Either you support a team – and wear their colours – or you don’t and you don’t. Quite who the Vardy v Aguero nylon rags on offer outside the Etihad on Saturday were aimed at is anyone’s guess. But presumably someone is buying them. For those neutrals who want to wear a football … Continue reading

Football packaging at its finest

At Savile Rogue we’ve always prided ourselves on a well-designed, stylish, recyclable packaging. So when we see another brand who raise the design bar we’re happy to doff our caps. When Nike launched their Vapor Untouchable boot, they invited a Portland based design company to create a limited edition package, and the results were rather good. Full story on the excellent … Continue reading

Safe Standing – time to introduce it

As football match atmospheres become more sterile and prices too high for many ordinary fans, it seems ridiculous that safe standing is still banned by the English government and the FA. Not only is standing already happening (without safety rails) at most Premiership and Championship games, but safe standing been working impeccably for years in Germany. Scottish teams will be introducing it in 2016. The Football … Continue reading

Football as religion

With football match crowds easily outnumbering church-goers, the beautiful game has become as close to a religion as many ever experience. With this in mind, designers Miguel Sousa and Francisco Pancho Cassis have flipped the idea, and have developed some football kits for a fictitious World Cup of Religions. See the images on TheModernGame.
