Football media company Footballco has acquired Mundial studio, creators of Mundial print magazine and the Giant podcast.
The long-form Mundial magazine is known for being fan-centric and offering coverage of issues not always covered by the mainstream football media, like the intersection between sport and culture. The group also runs a successful e-commerce business, selling Mundial merchandise, books, clothing and gifts.
Launched in 2014, publication of the Mundial print magazine ceased when the pandemic hit but the new deal means the publishers said the magazine will return to print in June in time for the Women’s Euro 2022 competition.
Footballco owns brands including Goal, Spox, Voetbalzone, Calciomercato and Player (a sports in-stream video player).
