Dubai, United Arab Emirates – Kick-Off tackles the history of football right from its roots in 2 B.C. China through its organisation into the game we recognise today. The e-book is packed with rare, vintage videos including some of the oldest recorded clips of football dating back to the 1900s and offers a unique insight to the development of the game throughout its history. A particular highlight is a video clip of a young Pele announcing his precocious talent during the final of the 1958 world cup.
“Publications released on our iPad and Android magazine reader are not simply glorified PDFs like the majority of publications released on tablets. Magazines and e-books sold using our platform come to life with videos and live features that make reading them a fully interactive and entertaining experience. Now the history of football leaps off the screen through fantastic vintage videos and web features. The goal for Kick-Off was to make it as exciting as the game it chronicles; we know football fans around the globe will have a fantastic experience reading and watching Kick-Off,” said Mars Mlodzinski, company partner at Leading Brands.
The book also features a competition that offers readers the chance to win an autographed print of Gordon Banks making football’s most iconic save against Pele’s header at the 1970 Mexico World Cup.
