A big welcome back to our favourite football mag. 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.
Issue 22 appeared over the summer, and we’re delighted now to have copies of the second relaunch edition, no23.
Inside: Zinedine Zidane’s career is dissected via ten matches; we meet the Ukraine fans fighting the Russians; a history of shithousery in the women’s game and more more more. Welcome back!
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.’
