Football (or Soccer depending on where you reside) is alive and well in the North of Sweden, in the Faroe Islands, in Ireland, and everywhere!
In this episode of the podcast Joe welcomes professional footballer & the co-founder of Football is Everywhere Pato Jerzak to the podcast. The two of them discuss how the magazine got started, Pato's professional career, and how football can unite the world.
Pato Jerzak is a professional football player and is also the person behind the idea of "Football is Everywhere." She decided to the start the magazine because she wants to show the beauty and importance of football in communities but also to make it possible for everyone to play football. She grew up in a privileged country where she was never stopped from playing the game. But in many places, playing football is not possible for everyone, especially for women. She is on a mission to change that.
Football is Everywhere is a highly visual collection of football stories from around the world, showcasing that football is everywhere in a form of a magazine, showcasing how much it impacts people’s lives, in many big and small ways, whether it’s a small town of 20 people managing to keep their club going, whether it’s Faroe Islands where most of the population plays football, or whether it’s a 4,000 people town reaching the highest tier of football in Sweden. It’s a magazine created with the intention to honor the football communities and their efforts, around the world.
...Created with the ultimate goal and purpose of it to give back to the football communities around the world, both by telling stories worth telling that are yet untold, but also by investing into football communities around the world.
