Old passion, new perspective: SoccerStyle
The ATFootball GmbH agrees an extensive cooperation with the specialist publisher OCEAN.GLOBAL from Kiel for the launch of the new premium magazine around football and players.
SoccerStyle emulates a different coverage of the most beautiful trivia in the world. The focus is not on tables and results, but on the people who make the results: the players, the coaches, the fans, the players ‘counselors, the masseurs, the witnesses and the outfitters, the sponsors and the players’ wives. SoccerStyle tells the stories that make history. Sometimes to laugh, sometimes to cry, sometimes to think. Always authentic, always very close. The magazine combines lifestyle and football in a unique way. Players are now more influencers than ever – their haircuts become fashion, their outfits compulsory, their Facebook and Instagram pages have as many followers as pop stars. SoccerStyle impresses with the highest quality of touch, graphical adaptation of the guiding principle as well as targeted, credible storytelling.
