Eight by Eight is a boldly designed large-format magazine born and raised in New York City. It focuses on the game’s best teams, coaches, and players, and their stories, from the bubbling potential of America’s burgeoning programs to the storied traditions of Europe’s greatest clubs. The ambition is to tell these stories through excellent journalism; aggressive, modern design; and the best illustration and photography. The readers must be smart and inquisitive, seeking a better understanding of the game’s unseen narratives and delighting in its complexities. The idea is that the same drama that captivates imaginations from the pitch should flow through our pages. So, what’s with the name? The goalposts are silent witnesses to the most dramatic moments in the game. They stand 8 feet high by 8 yards long—Eight by Eight.
