The Guardian’s Football Weekly is releasing its first book named The Football Weekly Book and a second season of live tour dates across England and Ireland with six shows in five cities
Featuring their trademark wisdom, humour and analysis, the book has been edited by sports journalist and Football Weekly regular Jonathan Wilson, with hosts Max Rushden and Barry Glendenning as consulting editors. Shunning modern AI technology, the Football Weekly book is illustrated by Guardian football cartoonist, David Squires.
After 17 years of success in audio, the book sees a debut in paper format, in a book that contains all the usual nonsense jokes, trivia and unparalleled analysis that draws in millions of listeners every month.
Glendenning, host of Football Weekly, said: “From our first ideas meeting over an unappetising lunch at Borough Market, through the long litany of passive aggressive Whatsapp messages and emails sent by Jonathan Wilson in his role as editor, to sitting at a desk in Guardian Towers signing 300 copies in one sitting, every step in the process of delivering this Football Weekly book has been an unequivocal joy.
Rushden, Glendenning and guests will also return for a second run of the podcast’s live tour across England and Ireland.
Tickets for Football Weekly Live are available here now.
