An alternative football magazine focussing on the most enchanting aspects of our beautiful game - opinionated fans and great goals.
We're aiming to raise the minimum amount to get the "What a Corker" publication up and running. The funding would be just about enough to cover production costs and contributor fees for three trial issues (which will only be available online). The magazine will become self-sustainable after this three month trial.
We've lined up a talented team of contributors that are raring to get going on this alternative monthly football magazine. Our team of 20 contributors have a wealth of writing experience, a combined social media following of over 150,000 and splatterings of marketing know-how.
Every month, our contributors will utilise their websites and social media channels to invite fans to vote for their team's goal of the month. The best goals will be recreated in Sensible Soccer-style match graphics, accompanied by a short description and a monthly summary of ongoings at that club.
The contributors vote to decide the goal of the month, which will be published on the front cover of the following issue and turned into a full animation. The winning goalscorer will be sent their goal on a t-shirt with their award. Merchandise, including the goal t-shirts, will be made available.
An open, honest publication trialling new features and commissioning thoughtful topical articles from guest writers. We'll be listening to our readers, acting on their feedback and giving them a platform to share their views. Go on, back What a Corker, an alternative monthly football magazine.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The main challenges will be hitting our deadlines. We're quite a big team and having everything fall into place (on time) could be a bit of a challenge. We're committed to getting three issues distributed, though. If our publication gets funded, that's exactly what we'll do.
The other major challenge will be increasing the circulation of our new little publication. We know that if we can't manage to sell at least 500 copies a month then there won't be an Issue 4. We'll be using all of our expertise and exploiting all of our contacts to make sure there is a fourth issue.
