BACKPASS - The retro football magazine

WE ARE delighted to announce that BACKPASS magazine, and its cricket counterpart BACKSPIN, have been acquired by Extra Time Publishing.
Issue 41 of BACKPASS, which is in the shops now, is dedicated to everyone who made that possible.
In February 2015 a new publication, EXTRA TIME incorporating BACKPASS, will be launched.
This move is an attempt to not only consolidate what is now an established brand on the football magazine shelves but also push it forward to the next level and appeal to a new raft of readers.
EXTRA TIME will be retro-themed – the BACKPASS ethos will remain and all the usual features will continue – but we will also take a fresh, informed look at current events and issues with the help of some new writers and columnists.
This is an exciting time for the magazine, and we hope you will continue to offer the support that, over the last seven years, has helped us to survive and flourish at a time when the market has been in worrying decline.
Since BACKPASS launched in 2007, numerous other magazines have boldly tried and failed to gain a foothold. Titles such as Football Punk, Twentyfour7 Football and Ken Monkou’s Football Life proved sadly short-lived while others like Calcio Italia and Shoot! have also folded.
There will be four issues of EXTRA TIME incorporating BACKPASS between now and the end of the season and all subscriptions to BACKPASS will be honoured by EXTRA TIME.
The first issue is due in the shops (or to drop through your letter box) around February 1. We look forward to your company on our new adventure.

Issue 41 of BACKPASS features Ian and Roger Morgan, Tony Brown, Frank Gray, Harold Jarman, Alan Moody, Brian Mooney, Crook Town v Bishop Auckland in 1954, England 9 Scotland 3 in 1961, York City v Manchester United in 1995 and Estonia's no-show against Scotland in 1996. Plus columns by David Pleat, Graham Taylor and Norman Giller ... and much much more.
