Pitchside started when a small group of users from the FIFA database and community, Futhead, decided to start a website for football and FIFA news. As we look to the future, we aim to add even more talented writers to our team, and to provide relevant, high-quality articles for football fans around the world. We hope that you will continue to follow Pitchside as we progress with our mission in the coming months and years.
