Football annuals discount

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

For those of you with an unquenchable thirst for stats and facts the FSF has hooked up with a few publishers and secured discounts on 2008-09 football year books for our FanMail recipients, should you be interested, including The Sky Sports Football Yearbook 2008-09 (formerly Rothmans), Playfair Annual 08-09 and the Nationwide Football Annual 2008-09.

Without naming names (let us give you a clue though, it’s a big river in South America) we’re pleased to say we’ve so far matched global book distributors on price for the hardback edition of The Sky Sports Football Yearbook 2008-09 while the paperback doesn’t yet appear to be on their site (circa August 4). We’ve also beaten them on price for the Playfair Football Annual.

The Sky Sports Football Yearbook 2008-09 (formerly Rothmans) normally retails at around £35 but we’ve secured copies for members at £22.75 (inc. P&P), a 35% saving on RRP. The book clocks up at a whopping 1000 pages and aside from the usual domestic league coverage also covers European competition and Euro 08. Described by the Daily Telegraph as the ‘first reference book you should turn to’ the new edition also features FA Cup Final analysis from 1872 to 2008.

We have also got the Sky Sports Football Yearbook in paperback, available at £13 (inc. P&P) which is a £7 saving on RRP. Click here to purchase.

There’s also the pocket sized Playfair Football Annual 2008-09 available from the same author – Jack Rollin – available at £5 inc. P&P (RRP £6.99).

Last, but by no means least, we’ve also got copies of the Nationwide Football Annual 2008-09, which is now in its 122nd year, and available at £6.50 inc P&P (RRP £6.99). The new edition features info on all the new 08-09 squads and fixtures as well as a feature on Beckham’s 100 caps, super.
