See below for the history of this magazine
Soccerama is a UK-based 336-page quarterly football magazine/book, edited by Hyder Gareth Jawád, which began life in October 2015. It claims to be at the serious end of the journalism spectrum, with large, in-depth features, essays, interviews, and original research. The Soccerama idea is based on the editor's long-held ambition to create a football publication in the style of Granta.
The first edition of Soccerama was published on October 21, 2015 and sold out its original print run of 512 test copies within three weeks. The editor described the initial print run as an "uncorrected proof edition; essentially, a demo to see the level of interest in such a publication". Having revised the first edition, the publishers produced a reprint in January 2016, which also sold out. The publishers initiated a third print run in February 2016.
In the "mission statement" to the first edition of Soccerama, the editor states that the "publication [is] produced by one man, with one laptop, and one telephone, in one coffee shop, over a period of three months". The plan, however, is that, "in the fullness of time, the one-man band will become a forty-piece orchestra" - as and when budget increases allow.
