Shoot first hit the shelves as a weekly publication on August 16th, 1969 and quickly became the UK’s most popular football magazine.
With star guest writers, including England’s legendary World Cup winning captain Bobby Moore, Jimmy Greaves, Kevin Keegan, Joe Cole and John Terry, to name just a few, it was a must have for every footy fanatic who wanted an in-depth look at the beautiful game.
After moving from a weekly to a monthly in 2001, editions continued to be packed with fascinating features and interviews with the biggest stars the sport had to offer.
A change in ownership, from Time Inc. UK, then known as IPC Media, to Pedigree Group Ltd, the UK’s market leader in Annuals, Yearbooks and related activity formats, resulted in Shoot moving into an exciting new era as it became the first printed football title in the UK to enter the digital world.
In August 2011 the first cross-platform eMagazine was released via the new Shoot website and app, which was soon made a featured product on Apple’s App Store.
To the present day, Shoot, which is still the UK’s Leading Football Annual, recently launching the 2016 version, has now incorporated all the fantastic content from the eMagazine into one fantastic, new website, as the brand continues to move with how and when people want content.
With fun features, profiles, activities, competitions and videos, related to both men’s and women’s football, there’s something for all the family to enjoy on shoot.co.uk and its social media channels – YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
