Match of the Day Magazine

Match of the Day Magazine Issue 572

Match of the Day is Britain’s best-selling football magazine. We bring our youth audience closer to their heroes with an action-packed version of the iconic TV programme. Facts, stats and gossip provide our audience with the knowledge they need for playground banter, while glossy posters, quizzes and cartoons allow them to celebrate the game they’re obsessed with. Parents and teachers say it’s sometimes the only thing boys will read. A huge compliment.
