The Weird Euros Story
Weird Euros started back in 2018 when two graphic designers Gordon Reid and Callum Stephenson were discussing their favourite World Cup moments – Diana Ross missing the penalty in 94, John Barnes rapping – they had an idea. They invited 20 of their favourite designers to celebrate the tournament’s stranger sides: the result was Weird World Cup, a collection of beermats depicting bizarre moments which were sold and made around £20,000 for charity.
Now with the Euros around the corner, the boys are back. This time with a collection of weirder moments from previous European Championships printed onto beermats and an even stranger list of artists ranging from the well known (David Shrigley, Chris Simpson and Pentagram) to a great list of young and upcoming artists like Isobel Mehta, Israel Kujore and Robyn Nichol.
Weird Euros are working with the adidas Football Collective and Goals 4 Girls who we're raising awareness and money for. The aim is to open up the game to everyone, everywhere. Use football as a catalyst for change in local communities. We believe that through football we have the power to change lives and working with adidas Football Collective, we believe they are the driving force for that change. Their work will create opportunities and tear down barriers, opening up the beautiful game to everyone.
Thanks for reading this and if you’ve got this far, go check out some of the amazing work adidas Football Collective and the charities involved are doing and go follow and enjoy the artists who’ve given their time and expertise to bringing to life some of these weird and funny moments.
Thanks, Gordon & Callum.
