the challenge

Football Focus is the BBC’s flagship football magazine show, and going into the 2021 season they wanted to make a concerted effort to capture the fan experience all across the country. And in one part of the UK no one one knows fans better than us.

the solution

Set the left dial to ‘Football’, set the right dial to ‘Emotion’. Now let’s get cooking up some stories. We explored football from top to bottom in Scotland, looking at the trailblazers, the local heroes, the diehard fans and the superstars that make our game unique. Football is so much more than 90 minutes in those white lines, it’s a lifestyle that lasts a lifetime, and these short films got under the skin of why football matters for so many.
“That’s one of the best things I’ve seen on Football Focus in years”Mark Lawrenson, Football Focus
