This special issue has 38 more pages than usual and a spine, so the cover price is 50p more than usual — instead of £2.50, it’s £3.
It’s included in subscriptions though, so for the best deal sign up to TSB+ Mag and get our regular magazines for £1 per issue (plus postage).
Getting the magazine delivered to your home is a very good idea, as it will arrive free of beer stains and torn corners, unless your postie is having a bad morning.
The best way to buy The Square Ball is to subscribe and get every regular issue delivered to your home for the next twelve months.
That way we know how many to print, and we have the money up front to pay the printer. We’ll post anywhere in the world and you won’t miss an issue.
You can get £10 off a subscription to the paper magazine if you buy an annual membership of TSB+. TSB+ gets you all our podcasts advert free, early access and live streaming video of The Match Ball podcast, a digital sub to the magazine, a daily email, discounts and more — and that tenner off getting the paper version delivered.
If you don’t want to subscribe — why not?! — you can buy our fourth issue of the season on its own right here.
Since 1989, The Square Ball magazine has been on sale outside Elland Road, barring pandemics and, now, a winter World Cup. Thanks to Fifa, this issue is being released online only, but we will be selling it at the next game against Manchester City on 28th December 2022 (and maybe the friendly against Real Sociedad, to be confirmed). Just look out for our windswept but friendly sellers by the Lowfields tunnel, Billy’s Statue, the Kop gates, and anywhere else someone is holding a fanzine in the air, until about fifteen minutes before kick-off.
As always our ten times-nominated and two-times FSF Award winning fanzine, plus one for the podcast and as of 2022 one for ‘Fan Media’, includes lots of pages of articles and artwork about what used to be the pain but now is the glory which also involves pain of being a Leeds United supporter, for more than 100 long, long years.
This issue also includes boxing and loads of retro World Cup goodness!
As Howard Wilkinson always used to say, thank you for your magnificent support.

A 160 page special publication by The Square Ball, Paul Trevillion and Leeds United Supporters’ Trust, to celebrate Leeds United winning the Centenary FA Cup in 1972.
When Don Revie picked up the phone to call Paul Trevillion, he thought he was getting a public relations expert. What he got instead was a true born artist, a whirlwind of ideas and action, a charismatic tempest. Revie soon nicknamed him, ‘The Beaver’.
