Our favourite football mag, back on the magCulture shelves! Having resigned themselves to a digital-only future as the pandemic struck, the Mundial team was taken over by online publisher Footballco in 2022 with the express aim of relaunching the print edition. This is their seventh issue since the relaunch last summer, and it's all about The Three R's: Romance! Red cards! Redemption!
'It’s the ultimate antidote to winter. Sun, Samba, and a trio of Brazilians who made the game look effortlessly easy and did things that will live with us all forever.'
On the Journal:
At work with editor Dan Sandison as they plot their return, ‘We’d had quite a few offers from weird and wonderful organisations to buy us out over the years, and we’d pretty consistently turned them down. This felt different though, they were publishers and football people. We got on.
‘Fast forward six months and we are working on a magazine for the first time in about three year…. It’s been a long time in the making, and we are all made up to be back.’
