Football Weekly News came from the same stable as World Soccer, with a format that was low in colour content, but high in news, facts and figures. Originally appearing in August 1979, the magazine ceased publication in the summer of 1981. Their date format covered a whole week (first edition is dated August 22-28 1979) and it is the 'end' date to which we refer in our listing system (i.e, we would date Issue 1 as Aug 28).
Details of the subject of the colour cover, the colour team group or player(s) which usually appeared on the back cover, and any other internal colour posters (usually on the inside covers) are listed alongside the date of each issue.
ALL FOOTBALL WEEKLY NEWS MAGAZINES ARE PRICED AT £2 EACH.
