Mundial Issue 11
MUNDIAL is a football lifestyle magazine in love with the travel, the fans, the kits, the boots, the world and the people surrounding the game. We don’t talk about heat-maps, or top goalscorers and pass completion-stats. Why would we when there is a rich untapped culture surrounding football? So whether it’s a fashion shoot in a Glasgow Tower block using solely adidas SPEZIAL, a glorious feature on the majesty of Javier Zanetti’s hair or twenty pages of nostalgic photography from the archive of the legendary Gerry Cranham, you’re getting a magazine with a love for football and its myriad subcultures dripping from every page. Smells good, too.
Issue 11 features David Beckham on the cover. But not the modern Beckham who rides motorcycles and sits courtside at Wimbledon and buys American franchises. They’re celebrating just how good he was at football. The hard running, corner whipping, free-kick taking metronome who played every game like he was in on the park against the big kids. Even Roy Keane loves him, and Roy Keane doesn’t like anyone.
Elsewhere in the issue there's Snoop Dogg in an Ajax kit, 180 minutes of non-league Merseyside madness, Roberto Baggio talking about goals, Japanese snow football, trackie tops, tennis balls and a highly statistical* analysis of whether God means more goals. And there’s more, loads more.
*it’s not that statistical. But it is funny.
