When manga meets Socceroos meets high-end design meets stats guru

We're delighted to let you know that on Wednesday 16 May, Andrew Howe will be presenting a special Souvenir Edition of his Encyclopedia of Socceroos to David Gallop and former Socceroo, now Head of High Performance at FFA, Luke Casserly, at FFA HQ. The Souvenir Edition is a gift to FFA from Fair Play Publishing.

In the following week, Andrew starts his series of roadshows to Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne, Ipswich/Brisbane and Adelaide to talk about the Encyclopedia with a presentation unique to the area.

If you haven't registered for one of the FREE launch sessions, please do right here.

We're also delighted to reveal our latest offering - some terrific player cards and a poster to accompany the Encyclopedia of Socceroos. They incorporate original manga-style drawings by a young artist and actor, Daisy Harris (pictured below), and designed by Leslie Priestley with Andrew's data.

There is a set of 11 cards who are The Record Holders amongst the Socceroos, as highlighted in Andrew's Encyclopedia:

Tim Cahill

Duncan Cummings

Alex Gibb

Mile Jedinak

Joe Marston

Lucas Neill

Mark Schwarzer

Archie Thompson

Mark Viduka

Harry Williams

Peter Wilson

The cards and poster will be a limited edition print and are a 'must have' for any football fan who loves their Oz football history.

Take a look at the cards here. We hope you like them as much as we do!
