The 2014/15 Premier League and FA Cup are well underway and there is plenty of opportunity for indies to push football titles.
Children’s titles are strong sellers in this sub-sector and often come covermounted with popular football collectables such as Match Attax and Merlin’s Premier League stickers.
Retro football title Backpass has been rebranded as Extra Time & Backpass and has a fresh look and feel, as well as a new section looking at current happenings in the sport.
FourFourTwo continues to be the best-selling football mag for adults, while club specific titles such as Celtic View or Liverpool FC are also popular.
Retailers can attract customers by displaying these titles prominently and should consider displaying covermounted issues near the till to encourage impulse buys.
