The Other Football

The Other Football is a personal project: a portrait of amateur football. A sport in which players show up late, wearing discolored uniforms and feeling the after effects of having too many drinks the night before.

 

This book goes deep into the weekly gathering on the field to tell the story of thousands of players who speak the football language.

For the past two years Rodri González and Cora Pérez, with the collaboration of the photographer Ian Patrick O'Connor, have been going from field to field interviewing players and capturing the essence of the beautiful game.

No sponsors. No press conferences. No V.A.R. Just football. And a post-match pint of beer.   

First edition is already sold out.
