Information on how we are dealing with the outbreak


WSC 400 went to press on June 17 and should be with UK subscribers and on the shelves week commencing June 22. Many more WH Smith branches are now open so the magazine should be easier to find.

The best way to guarantee your copy is to subscribe - it's cheaper too. If you're an existing subscriber, especially with an automated payment such as a standing order or direct debit, please don't cancel. Your subscription covers a number of issues, not a fixed time period, so if there is an interruption you'll get all the magazines you've paid for once everything gets back to normal. Subscriptions provide us with a vital income stream. All subscribers have free access to our full digital archive of every issue going back to 1986, and digital-only subs are available.

We are operating with reduced staffing levels and are struggling to answer the phone at times. If possible please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for subscription and merchandise enquiries or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for other stuff.

To help fill the time while you're at home we will continue to post out online orders of books and magazines. If you have children to entertain you can access pages from Kickaround magazine to help with reading, writing, geography, history or maths all with a football theme.

As in 2018 we scheduled 11 issues for 2020 to enable us to give the best coverage of Euro 2020. Although the tournament has been postponed (and we'd already started work on the wallchart) we will continue with the original schedule given the suspension of football. A full schedule for 2020, correct today, can be found here.

We will continue to produce the WSC podcast which has become very popular in the short time since its launch. The podcast is free but you can get bonus episodes (and other stuff) by joining the WSC Supporters' Club and help us out at the same time.

As ever, thank you for your continued support and, most importantly, stay safe everyone.
