For many football fans, there's one tradition that adds an extra layer of magic to matchday – buying a match programme. Everyone has their own reason for buying; maybe they genuinely want to read information on that day’s match. Or maybe it’s for their collection. Whatever their motivation, in a world where digital media dominates, why do fans still treasure these printed programmes?
- Souvenir: something you buy or keep to help you remember a holiday or special event
”I buy match programmes as a souvenir.”
- Collect: to get and keep things of one type as a hobby
”I collect programmes from all of the matches I’ve been to.”
- Publish: to make information available to people, especially in a book, magazine, or newspaper, or to produce and sell a book, magazine, or newspaper
”It takes a team of writers and designers working tirelessly to publish a programme in time for each match.”
