Soccerbilia - the home of British football magazines
On this site we sell the original magazines, we are not the owners of the copyright.
We have thousands of football magazines in stock covering 83 different publications.This includes ,amongst others,complete runs of Charles Buchan's Football Monthly,Soccer Star, Jimmy Hill's Football Weekly, World Soccer and the first twenty odd years of Shoot.
The site offers many first issues of other famous football magazines.This site is a work in progress as it has been very difficult to catalogue all the soccer magazines that have been produced over the last 50 plus years, particularly as rival publications consumed and were consumed by the competition.
To see the actual covers of the magazines click on "Store Top" above.
If you have any historical background to add to my listings I would be very grateful for the help as even the British Library does not hold complete records for all the football periodicals of recent years.
I have hundreds of issues to still upload to the site so please revisit or send an email if your favourite footy magazine issue is not showing yet as the chances are that I have them in stock but have not yet catalogued them..There are currently over 7000 different magazines available to purchase from the site.
The list of publications on the left are arranged chronologically, oldest at the top down to the brand new at the bottom.
As well as being a site where football memorabilia collectors can fill the gaps on their magazine of choice it is also a place where visitors can use the continuous run of magazines from 1932 to the present to buy unique birthday presents for their friends and family members who love "soccer".

Reclaiming the name "Soccer"
Some people incorrectly assume that America invented the word "Soccer" and as a result British fans tend to recoil from the name and stick to "Football". In fact "soccer" is the nickname from the early 20th century and is a contraction of "Association Football".
This term of affection was used throughout the last century and only started to be slowly dropped from the late 1970s. It was a surprise in 1951 that Charles Buchan called his magazine a "Football" Monthly when in all his editorials his copy was about the joy of soccer, or the skill of soccer. Raich Carter launched his "Soccer Star" in 1952 and "World Soccer" followed in 1960. The dummy issue of Goal magazine that circulated to newsagents in the summer of 1968 featured the strap line of "The Worlds Greatest Football Weekly" but crucially by launch it had become "The Worlds Greatest Soccer Weekly".
For a site dedicated to the British Football/Soccer magazine memorabilia of the second half of the 20th Century it really had to be called "Soccerbilia".
Besides British Soccer Magazines you will also find a selection of football books for sale on this site.
