Footy mad...

BBC Match of the Day is the market-leading weekly football title, and the only football magazine which is integrally linked to the popular television show. The content brings readers closer to their heroes with exclusive interviews, brilliant facts and stats, the latest transfer gossip and results, quality posters, tough quizzes, mega prizes, and funny jokes and cartoons. The BBC MOTD Magazine and website is the must-read for all football-mad youngsters!

BBC Match of the Day Magazine is published by Immediate Media Company London Limited under licence from BBC Worldwide who help fund new BBC programmes.


BBC Match of the Day is Britain’s best-selling football magazine. We bring our readers closer to their heroes with a youthful, 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 their boys will read. A huge compliment.
