I'm a young sport writer who has always aspired to combine my passion for football and travelling in order to write a book. What I want to do is travel to the four corners of Europe to compare and contrast the stories and lifestyles of footballers and fans across the continent and tell the untold stories and explore the different cultures in a trip around Europe.
I plan to combine visits to top stadiums such as the Camp Nou, San Siro, Allianz Arena but also visit the Faroe Islands, Estonia and Iceland to find out about lives of fans and footballers in the less established countries and make my way to Eastern Europe to look at their progression since the fall of the USSR and Yugoslavia.
I'll talk to players, managers, tea ladies, fans from around the continent about their various experiences of football and what it means to different cultures and ways of life. I'll visit some of the most picturesque stadiums there are, defunct stadiums and historical venues to explore the ins and outs of European football.
This is an expensive project and you can help this unique football book become a reality. You can help cover travel costs, accommodation, match fees, interview fees etc. The more money that comes in, the more places I can visit, the more interviews I can conduct the better this book will be which I can finally give back to you, my audience in the future.
