The Official Emblem of the FIFA U-20 World Cup Egypt 2009 was unveiled during a ceremony held in Cairo.

FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter was unable to attend, but sent the following message: "The FIFA U-20 World Cup is a major event in which we have seen over the past 30 years the rise of great football stars, such as Maradona, Ronaldinho and Messi. I am certain that new talents will emerge once again in Egypt in 2009."

The Official Emblem represents a harmonious fusion of Egypt's glorious ancient civilization with today's modern culture. The shape of the sphinx represents the millenary essence of Egypt, while the golden colour symbolises the sun, the desert sand and the golden kingdom of the Nile. The use of red, black and white embodies the colours of the Egyptian national flag.


Thousands of people have gathered to see the official unveiling of a statue of football manager Brian Clough in Nottingham.

The statue, designed by sculptor Les Johnson, stands at the junction of King and Queen streets and was chosen out of 4 submitted designs which you can find here. 

The statue is the result of a fund-raising campaign by a small group of volunteers from the Brian Clough Statue Fund. They raised £70,000 in just 18 months. The chairman of the fund, Paul Ellis, described Les’s sculpture as ‘superb.’

“I have been to see the clay version of the statue and I was extremely impressed,” said Paul. “The likeness is perfect - it sent a tingle down my spine when I saw it - it’s incredible. I’m delighted that Mrs Clough and Elizabeth thought it was perfect too. The approval of Brian Clough’s family has been vital every step of the way and I am sure we will have a statue that everyone can be proud of.”


After getting to choose from 3 options, the management of Feyenoord football club and stadium “De Kuip” want their new stadium in Rotterdam to be build in the water of the Meuse river.

“We choose the Meuse-option” said director Jan van Merwijk on behalf of “de Kuip” stadium and Feyenoord.

“On this spot, the new stadium will become an icon, and with this option we have more space for training accommodation at the stadium.”

In mid-December the final decision will be made but the football complex in the river Meuse scores high.

The new Kuip (for up to 80,000 spectators) would be ready in 2016. That has to do with the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which the Netherlands and Belgium want to organise. The construction of the mega-stadium will cost between 400 and 500 million euros.

The 2 other options besides the Stadium in the Meuse are called United (option 1) and Stadiumpark (option 3)

Welcome to

This website has been set up in 2009 by to offer a chance for amateur designers to showcase their work in football design. 

Based on the popularity of the Football kit Concepts section of our sister site FSC and the fantasy shirts scattered across football fansite forums worldwide, we knew this was something that was of great interest and Fantasy Kit Design also showed us the talent and imagination that is out there.

Our idea was to give designers a platform from which to expose their work and also create a community where ideas can be shared.  Through galleries and the blog we hope to facilitate the formulation of ideas and initiate debate concerning all areas of football design. 

Eventually, through links to the football design industries, we also hope to become a stepping stone to a related career for many of our contributors.

We will cater for all football designers, whether your interest lies simply in creating accurate renditions of existing kits for Pro Evolution Soccer or Fifa or your long-term aim is to be working for one of the large football apparel manufacturers, this is the site for you.  Whatever your goal, interest, standard or style, is your site and your designs will make it what it becomes.

Jay, DF team
