FELICIA PENNANT // SEASON

Creator Series introduces the individuals who are using their inspiration and talent to push football culture forward. Season has lead the fight in increasing the female share-of-voice in football, with Felicia Pennant its starring as its Editor-in-Chief.   How did SEASON get started? Deep down, I think I always wanted to launch some kind of publication ever since I discovered ELLE and Vogue aged 14. And the first inkling I had that I could combine my two main interests, fashion and football, to make a creative editorial magazine was The Green Soccer Journal.

Female fans (and players) are overlooked or underrepresented or if you google...

Who’s your team? Why? Preface: I did a bad thing and switched teams. Context: I did a bad thing and switched teams with reason. I grew up a Newcastle United fan in the 1990s — with Shearer, Robson, Ginola and the lot.

KITTY BURNE // GOAL DIGGERS FC

Creator Series introduces the individuals who are using their inspiration and talent to push football culture forward. Kitty Burne plays for North London's Goal Diggers FC, a North London football club who are campaigning to correct perceptions of women and non-binary people in the game.  Favourite team and player? I don’t follow league football too closely anymore because I’d rather spend my time playing. However, I love to go with my teammates to watch the Lionesses, especially during tournaments. Fran Kirby is probably my favourite player, she’s scored some very impressive goals and always brings a bit of sparkle to the match. What was the response like to the Kickstarter campaign? GDFC has had an incredible Kickstarter campaign. There is an astounding amount of...

We were sharing a studio back in 2010 and both of us had become a little bit disillusioned with football having played Sunday League for so long, we were both at a stage where we needed a change. We’d seen this team Chinatown Soccer Club in New York. They were playing football and working on projects together, and that really connected with us so we started looking...
