It contains images for over a thousand clubs and international sides across the world.
Each team has an image for the club reflecting the exterior of the stadium and another for the interior often during a match. For the exterior images I try to get images giving a bit of flavour for things going on around the stadium. Fans going to the game is my favourite but also just local life around the stadium.
I try to keep the quality high and am rarely happy to compromise over the quality of an image. I would rather leave a club without an image than use one of substandard quality.
The intention is to add good quality images of lower league teams in England down to level 9. Currently the number completed stands at 51%. All teams down to level 7 are complete now.

158 of the images I have contributed myself from pictures I have taken at grounds I have visited. When I have a chance I'll swing by a stadium and get some pictures so I can add my own into the pack. Images are Mainly from the north of England but I aim mainly for the lower league teams who are difficult to get images for, right down to level 9 of the football pyramid. I'm not a professional (or even amateur really) photographer but I'm pretty pleased how the images have come out. I know what I'm looking for in an image after a few years doing this so tend to get good images for the pack (in my opinion anyway).
The clubs for which I took at least the exterior image are below.
