We’re delighted to announce a new offering for Italian football fanatics…
Our latest offerings are live here!
Tifosi! – what is it?
Bespoke gift boxes for Italian football fans. Each box will be unique, designed with care and attention to detail, with contents sourced from an extensive network of contacts in Italy and the UK.
There’s none of this ‘mystery’ nonsense…you see exactly what you’ll be receiving before you make the purchase. The boxes will be priced individually in the range £25-45 (inclusive of UK postage) and will contain some or all of the following:
- A brand new book, imported from Italy (Don’t speak Italian? Don’t worry – they will be illustrated books so can be enjoyed with even the smallest smattering of the language)
- Brand new fan accessories, such as a hat or scarf
- A unique original press photograph
- Figurines and models
- Trading cards and stickers, both classic and contemporary
- A classic magazine or programme
Tifosi! has been are born out of a deep sense of frustration over the past year, and a feeling of being more remote than ever from Italian football. These are emotions that we’re sure will resonate with many of you. While your next trip to the peninsula is on hold, Tifosi! boxes bring a little piece of calcio to you.
In part, we’re offering a bit of retail therapy, but we also want the project to achieve some wider social good. At a time when lots of people are struggling financially, we felt it important that the project has a charitable aspect too. Therefore, we’ll be donating 15% of any profit to my local Food Bank in Woking.
What happens next?
The first batch of boxes will be released at 7pm Thursday 29th April. The themes will be Juventus, Inter, Roma, Sampdoria, Parma and a one-off “Baggio Box“. Numbers will be extremely limited for this initial pilot.
Further announcements and sneak previews will be made over the coming week on Twitter (@calcioengland), counting down to the boxes going on sale here.
