Whether on or off-season, a love for the beautiful game is evergreen. Check out our collection of football books for match day, the boots bag, or a rainy Sunday. We stock everything from the sensational Football Heroes to the modern revival of classic soccer strip Roy of the Rovers. Whether you’re an international superstar or a kickabout queen, we’ve got the book you’ll love, regardless of your team, league, or understanding of the offside rule.

If you can’t get enough football in your life, Football Heroes is the series for you. These biographies of the world’s leading footballers are highly entertaining, fast-paced, and very collectable. In both Classic and Ultimate flavours, the series is written by two football-mad brothers from Southampton, Matt and Tom Oldfield. They write with the vim and the verve of a top-flight team, so these books are perfect for a quick read on the way to Sunday league or even passing around the playground. By the time of the final whistle, you’ll know everything you need to know about some modern footballing greats.

Football Heroes Books

These addictive biographies feature some of the most famous names in football, from superstar midfielders such as De Bruyne to cultural icons like Raheem Stirling. Now, young readers can learn the astonishing true stories behind the world’s greatest game. Whether you support Spurs or Arsenal, Barcelona or Grimsby, you need and want to know about these players. Some of them play for the national team, some of them may get traded to your side. However, all of them are worth reading about. Plus, with our incredible value packs, you can’t afford to miss this transfer window.

One of the UK’s most memorable comics characters is Roy Race, better known as Roy of the Rovers. Originally appearing in Tiger in September 1954, he was published in various magazines for nearly sixty years. Now, Roy is back in Roy of the Rovers 3 Book Collection by Rob Williams and Ben Willsher. This fresh, modern reboot features Melchester Rovers flat broke and languishing at the bottom of League Two. Can Roy help turn the club around? 

Written by veteran Rob Williams, and drawn by the fantastic Ben Willsher, read the series Match of the Day Magazine called “epic!” Jim Sells, Programme manager for Sport & Literacy, National Literacy Trust is also a fan: “I love the way that they are about so much more than football: they are about heart, values and family…. Lace up and get reading.” Get the first season of Roy Race’s comic strip adventures at a best-value price here at Books2Door.
