Get Involved

We’re always on the lookout for writers, illustrators and collaborators to get involved with the website, features and on future issues of our magazine, so please get in touch by emailing us at contribute@boxtoboxfootball.uk or subscribing to our mailing list here to be kept up to date with any upcoming opportunities in print or our web series.

This project is a labour of love and we have built a community of like-minded contributors over the last 5 years, writing and creating content for our loyal readership – but unfortunately, any contributions are unpaid.

Submit Article

If you’re interested in submitting an article for our website, please drop us an email at contribute@boxtoboxfootball.uk.

Whether it’s a piece on Maradona warming up before a gamethe history of the five teams in Moscow or Kingsley, the terrifying Partick Thistle mascot – we accept well-written articles that stand the test of time and are just as relevant in a week, month, year or 5 years time.

We want you to write about what you are passionate about, shining a light on the stories mainstream media may have missed. We would normally advise between 800-1500 words, but longer form pieces are great too – we’ll make sure you get the credit you deserve, linking back to your site, blog, book, social media on anything published.

Regular Features

While we accept articles on an ad-hoc basis, we also run regular features on our website. For newer contributors, it’s a great way to get inspired by the catalogue of previous articles.

Even better, why not submit your own feature?

Badge of the Week

Run by co-founder, Oliver Marsh, our Badge of the Week feature is an exploration into the wonderful world of football crests, and with 130 badges featured already – we’ve barely scratched the surface.

Clubkultur

Started by Edd Norval in 2017, Clubkultur is a Box To Box series exploring the true essence of the beautiful game, a look at the intangible feelings that keep us coming back to support our club, no matter how they’re playing, no matter where. In Clubkultur, we explore the important cultural aspects of football clubs from all over the world, as our contributors see them.

Football’s Greatest Underdogs

From Leicester City in 2016 to North Korea in 1966, some of football’s finest moments are those which come in the most unpredictable fashion. Whether it be a title that shook the world or just a one-off match that briefly enamoured the millions of onlookers, football’s underdogs are what drive people to the sport. In this series started by Adam Khan, we look at some of football’s biggest upsets, showing us despite even the most outlandish odds, truly anything can happen on a football pitch.

Comeback Kings

Every fan, coach and player is familiar with that point of no return, the ripple of a net that signifies imminent and inescapable defeat. Yet once in a while, against all logic, the unthinkable does happen – a speculative long-range effort, a sudden dismissal or even force majeure can reignite the dreariest contests. And, be they before 95,000 pairs of eyes at the Camp Nou or on the shores of the Wirral peninsula, these spectacular renaissances have enthralled us all to the highest degree. In this series, created by Cameron Pope takes us on a nostalgic tour of football’s greatest comebacks, from the famous to the forgotten, allowing us to relive these tales of indefatigable resilience all over again.
