“Our national teams continue to be an inspiration for many and this will bring to life a rich history that connects with our nation,” said The FA’s Simon Wickham.
Welbeck Publishing Group is to publish the first officially licensed history of the England Football team thanks to a new collaboration with The Football Association.
Written by Daniel Story and titled England: The Official History, the charts the complete history of the England national team, covering the highs and lows of the men’s and women’s national teams – including an account of England’s complete performance at UEFA EURO 2020.
“We are delighted to be partnering with The Football Association on this hugely exciting project,” said Wayne Davies, Group Publisher for Non-Fiction at Welbeck Publishing Group.
“If this summer has shown us anything, it’s that the England team still has the ability to capture the public’s imagination almost a century and a half since the first international match was played. England: The Official History promises to be a definitive celebration of the Three Lions and Lionesses that fans won’t want to miss.”
Simon Wickham, Senior Commercial Manager for Retail & Licensing at The Football Association, added: “Our national teams continue to be an inspiration for many and this will bring to life a rich history that connects with our nation.”
England: The Official History by Daniel Storey is published by Welbeck on October 14th.
