Calling all avid football memorabilia collectors

Tuesday 7th November 2023

I have been working on a side project over the last few months that some fans may be interested in.

I have created a number of Twitter (X) accounts which automatically post the best footballing deals it can find on EBay. These deals include rare shirts, signed memorabilia, programs, badges, scarfs, ticket stubs and anything else fans can sell on eBay.

So far, I've created a number of team-specific Twitter accounts as well as ones for fans on Subbuteo and collectors of football shirts. The full list of accounts are:

Give a follow to any of the accounts you may be interested in. More teams will be coming soon in the near future.

Adding to map bug fixed

Friday 3rd November 2023

Some of you may have noticed a bug with adding grounds to your maps and wish lists recently.

This impacted anyone attempting to add grounds from the individual ground page (eg, Bramall Lane). This was due to a rather complicated error to do with Javascript and our web hosting set up.

I'm happy to report that the error has now been fixed and the page should be fully functioning again!

Thanks to Roddy Maclean for making me aware. If anybody spots any errors with the site. Please let me know through the contact form.

Morocco to build new stadium and renovate 6 others

Wednesday 1st November 2023

Morocco has outlined plans to build a new stadium in Benslimane. Little is known about the new ground other than the budget - approximately £375m and a construction timeline that starts in 2025 and finishes in 2028.

As well as the new stadium, the country also intends to heavily modernise 6 others. An initial investment of £750m will take the stadiums up to the standard required for the county's hosting of the Africa Cup of Nations in 2025. A second round of renovations will then be undertaken to take the stadiums up to FIFA's requirements for hosting the World Cup in 2030 - that work is expected to cost a further £500m.

The stadiums to be modernised are:

  • Ibn Batouta Stadium in Tangier
  • Mohammed V Stadium in Casablanca
  • Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium in Rabat
  • Ardar Stadium in Agadir
  • Stade de Marrakech
  • Fez Sports Complex

Las Palmas in plans to increase capacity of Gran Canaria stadium in World Cup bid

Wednesday 1st November 2023

The Spanish island of Gran Canaria is to expand its main stadium in the hope of hosting World Cup matches in 2030.

The Estadio de Gran Canaria is already the largest in the Canary Islands and is home to La Liga side Las Palmas. The 32,000 capacity ground will be modernised into a 45,000 capacity stadium with an extended roof covering all seats.

The local council has announced the plans but insists they will go ahead even if the island isn't used as a World Cup venue. Las Palmas have only once achieved an attendance of more than 30,000 since their return to the Spanish top flight this season.

Braga stadium put up for sale

Friday 20th October 2023

Braga's stadium has been put up for sale by the city council.

The 30,000 seater stadium was famously built into an old quarry cliff face for the 2004 Euros, but has proved to be unpopular amongst Braga fans.

The club currently pays just €500 per month to play in the stadium, making the long-term future unviable.

Friday 20th October 2023

The new stadium will also include a sports centre, public park, museum and club store.

Old Trafford capacity to increase to 90,000?

Wednesday 18th October 2023

The capacity of Old Trafford could be increased to 90,000 - if Sir Jim Radcliffe is successful in his attempt to purchase 25% of the club.

The British billionaire has been exploring the options of expanding and modernising the stadium in an attempt to keep up with the facilities offered by rivals Man City, Arsenal and Spurs.

Old Trafford is not on the list of stadiums in the running to host matches at Euro 2028. It's early stages, but if the upgrade does happen, it will tie with Wembley as the 2nd largest stadium in Europe.

Friday 13th October 2023

Liverpool have confirmed that the upper tier of the new Anfield Road stand won't be open until 2024.

The stand was originally planned to be fully open this year, but has been delayed due to the construction company falling into administration.
