A first-of-its-kind book with a host of the game’s ultimate insiders, released on the eve of the 2024 Euros

As England and Scotland prepare to take on Europe’s elite in the European Championships, a new book reveals to teenagers how they can work professionally in the game at the top level – without stepping out on to the pitch as a player.

Packed with incredible insights from a diverse range of football’s most successful professionals, 50 Ways Into Football: Dream Jobs On And Off The Pitch provides potential pathways into the sport – from designing Premier League kits to making the most successful global video games.

It features contributions from some of the sport’s household names and most successful professionals, including Declan Rice, Eberechi Eze, Alessia Russo and Ella Toone plus CEO Paul Barber OBE, ‘Football Writer of the Year’ Henry Winter, sports psychologist Dr Pippa Grange and broadcaster Alan Shearer.

The book itself is written by two industry insiders, best-selling children’s author and former FA Editor Dan Freedman and top football lawyer Daniel Geey, who has been responsible for some of the game’s biggest transfer deals. Plus, a foreword from England and Arsenal star Declan Rice.

50 Ways Into Football: Dream Jobs On And Off The Pitch launches on 13 June 2024, the eve of Euro 2024, as Scotland face hosts Germany in the opening match of the tournament whilst England prepare for their tough first group game against Denmark. This book will harness the inspiration both teams provide to young people during the tournament by helping teenagers visualise how they too can be part of their favourite sport. It’s a must-read for those who love football and want to be part of it.

Our very own CEO Clare Martin has an extract in the book, talking all about her role working in football.
