Formed in 2020, Libero is The Alternative Football Periodical.

We're not interested in meaningless stats or marginal offside debates because football is so much more than that. We want to illuminate the beauty of the global game, writing on the stories that really matter, the weird, the wonderful, the under-reported. We don't do clickbait. We publish high quality written pieces and, as a print magazine, we're looking to remove the noise of an increasingly digital and diluted world.

If you like in-depth articles on seldom-told stories and new perspectives on the ever-growing, ever-changing world of football, accompanied by top class illustrations and graphic design, then Libero is the publication for you. Choose Libero.

Luke Connelly


Luke founded Libero in 2020, from the homely comforts of his front room in Lancashire. He writes on anything and everything as far as football is concerned, looking to write about the niche, the weird and wonderful, providing there's a story to tell. 

Jack O'Reilly


Jack is the illustrative half of Libero, helping to bring written pieces and illustrations together to spark awe and wonder among our readers. To quote Peep Show: "Here be beauty. There be pie charts."
