The Eastern European Chronicles I x II [Digital]

Sale price£13.00

As magical as it is mystical, Eastern European football remains one of the crown jewels of the beautiful game. 

From the bountiful but brutal years of life behind the Iron Curtain, through to the 1990s when Eastern European football was finally able to show its might to the wide eyes of the world, the sport has been at the forefront of society, science and innovation. 

Across two special issues - available as a digital package - celebrating the greats of Eastern European football across 14 nations, we travel to Armenia, Belarus, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechoslovakia, the Czech Republic, Georgia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Ukraine and Yugoslavia to rekindle some of the game's greatest names. 

Across 300 pages, you'll find some of the very best art, design and feature writing on the following.
