To mark the passing of Pelé, the greatest footballer of all time, last December, FUTBOLISTA ISSUE 11 profiles Pelé as an icon of sport and culture. He created an eternal, unparalleled reputation as a god-like footballer, completed by his performance at the 1970 World Cup Finals in Mexico. On page 10, editor Archie Willis examines the iconography of Pelé with an essay on his mythical ability, how he came to represent the entirety of Brazil, and the Médici military dictatorship’s attempt to use the symbolism of Pelé for political benefit.

In our eleventh issue’s Features section, Mike Witcombe takes you to Vienna on page 18, reporting on the history of the derby between Rapid Wein and Austria Wien. Kris Scrimgeour looks back at his experience of Barcelona in April 2010, ‘a city in which football is politics’, on page 26. In ISSUE 11, Volkan Isbasaran kicks off the Travel Diary with his adventure in Almaty, Kazakhstan, taking in Kairat Almaty versus Ordabasy in the Kazakhstan Premier League on page 34. Plus much more, including Olivier Giroud, Daniele De Rossi and Luciano Vasallo.
