About this project

 

This Kickstarter campaign is a celebration of 25 years of the Premier League. An anniversary coffee table book compiling the greatest all-time facts, records and statistics to occur during its history. 

Introducing '25 Years of the Premier League'

Using high-end production techniques, the coffee table book will be an ultimate resource for anyone who shares our passion for the game. We aim to create the definitive archive of facts, records and statistics curated from the 25 years.

All facts, statistics and records are supplied by Opta, the official sports data provider for the Premier League.

What Is a Dust Jacket and Why Do I Want One?

A dust jacket is the outer cover that protects a book from damage. However we think this is the perfect opportunity, for football fans to personalise their book with their favourite club colour. To select your dust jacket colour please email jackets@25yearsofthepremierleague.com with the subject 'Club Colour' in the email write your name, address and club of choice.

The Content

We have divided the book into two sections, the first section dedicated to Premier League per season and all-time records, the second dedicated to individual club records for every club to feature within the Premier League. The statistical content listed below is pre-arranged with Opta. This list will be subject to modifications and improvements as the project develops as we plan to increase this depending on the level of support the project receives. Please be aware that the current visuals on show do not contain any of the official records from Opta as we have not been supplied it yet. We will update all the designs with the Opta content if we achieve funding.

Note: While The Premier League is the subject of the content, the publication and distribution of the '25 Years of the Premier League' on Kickstarter is not sponsored or endorsed by the Premier League and is an independent publication undertaken to celebrate its 25 Year Anniversary.

The Money & Why Kickstarter

Simply put, we believe this book would be a fantastic resource for any football fan. Kickstarter is the perfect way to achieve funding and make it happen. We are both passionate graphic designers and see this project as the perfect opportunity to use our skills to create a beautiful go-to book for all football fans to enjoy.

For this project to become a reality, we require the funding for production, and the content and licensing (official statistics and records). If we surpass our funding goal, we intend to introduce stretch goals to improve our product. We have many ideas of possibilities, for instance adding an image section of great Premier League moments would be a fantastic addition to the project.

Special Thanks


Special thanks to Eyes & Ears for their support and the making of our Kickstarter film.

Risks and challenges

For the last six months, we have been working on the project around our full time jobs as graphic designers. We have experimented with different design styles and are now happy with the look and feel of the project. The next steps would be to develop a wider range of infographics and typographic layouts across the book.

The challenge of a project of this nature, is presenting the sheer amount of statistical content in an attractive and clear way. This requires patience and time, something we are more than willing to sacrifice if we manage to achieve our Kickstarter goal. We will also be meticulously checking the project to make sure all the information is correct.

Other challenges include permissions – we are still awaiting to hear from Nike regarding permission to reproduce the illustrations of the footballs. However we have already gained permission from Mitre, so we don’t think that this will be an issue.

We are confident that with your help we can overcome any challenges and produce a fantastic Premier League 25 Year Anniversary Book. Thank you for pledging!
