Tomorrow, at 8pm local time in St Denis, France will kick off against Romania in the first game of Euro 2016. What follows is a month of football where the leading teams in Europe will compete to be crowned champions of the continent. We have been inundated with projects that relate to the tournament from player-based illustrations to footie fashion and even a wall chart thrown in. Here we’ve gathered together some of the work that scored big with us.
A special edition of the Green Soccer Journal has been produced for the tournament. “After the events of the past year and a half, the 2016 European Championship in France is set to be the most poignant and emotionally charged major tournament in a generation,” says editor Josh Wilson. “With the help of illustrator Osvaldo Casanova, we have selected and captured one enduring image from each of the fourteen tournaments that stands out for its brilliance, its importance, its audacity, or a combination of all three.”
The publication will be produced in a special run of 500 copies and the website will be updated throughout the tournament with the content from the magazine.
