Top Soccer

 

In response to the launch of Match Weekly, IPC Magazines (publishers of Shoot) tried to counteract this with the launch of another new publication, namely "Top Soccer". With a lower cover price and a feel more akin to a comic than a magazine, it was aimed at younger readers than Shoot (or it's new rival Match) had previously targetted. However, it soon became clear that there was no real call for another magazine in this bracket, and the seventeenth issue, dated 5th January 1980 was the final one, with the title being incorporated into it's bigger sister title.

 

We are pleased to be able to offer a small selection of copies of this short-lived publication in perfect condition.  Details of colour front cover/centre feature/back cover are listed in the usual format.

 

ALL MAGAZINES IN THIS SECTION ARE PRICED AT £3 EACH.
