Magnum Collection Posters: Football Around the World

As the World Cup 2018 kicks off, we take a look at the pitches and impromptu football matches that have taken place on as diverse terrain as war zones, deserts, city streets, beaches and mountainsides in this collection of Magnum Collection Posters.

Football has been, and continues to be, played around the world in disparate landscapes, and has proven to be not only a game of pleasure but also one of psychological refuge. This curation of posters explores the unusual and surprising forms in which it has come to life, and speaks to the enduring practice and lifeline of this ‘beautiful game.’
