The debut issue of Glory Magazine investigates the incredible rise of Faroese football and looks beneath the surface of Europe’s remotest league. This beautiful land is one of the most passionate, football-loving countries you could visit – a recent index revealed that the Faroe Islands are the most supported national side in the world based on population.
It includes an interview with the goalkeeping hero Jens Martin Knudsen – aka ‘the man with the bobble hat’ – to get his account of the Faroes’ most historic win against World Cup attendees Austria in 1990, and with Skansin – a newly-formed group of die-hard supporters bringing a new dimension to the Faroe Islands’ international games – to uncover the personalities behind football’s most loveable twelfth man.
Behind it all are the stunning landscapes of the ethereal Faroe Islands. Glory Issue 1 is not to be missed.
