After it was launched last year, the Stand Against Modern Football fanzine quickly became a success story of print and web working together to promote a common cause, and provided a platform for football fans with points to prove about the modern game. Issue 1 sold out it’s print run of 1000 copies in just two weeks, purely through world of mouth on social media sites.
Since then, there have been daily requests via Twitter and Facebook – both to STAND AMF and Potts Print (UK) – to do a reprint. That reprint is finally going to happen, and to continue the theme of supporting a cause, all profits from ‘the second first issue’ will go to The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.
The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation focuses on the early detection and treatment of cancer, and the clinical trials of new drugs that will eventually beat it. Sir Bobby Robson fought cancer an incredible five times. Sadly, 17 years after his first diagnosis, he lost that long and courageous battle on 31st July 2009. He died very peacefully at his County Durham home with his wife and family beside him. During the last 18 months of his life, and after retiring from football management, Sir Bobby worked hard towards a new goal – fighting cancer through his charity.
For each copy of the issue 1 reprint sold, £1.25 goes to The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation. The pre-order link will go live at http://shop.standamf.com later this week. (Issue 3 is currently available to buy.)
The fanzine is written and illustrated by fans, and you can contribute to future issues by emailing Seb White (Editor) on this address: firstname.lastname@example.org
