Football is Everywhere is a production company and a collection of highly visual football stories told via a football magazine, articles and video content. Created with the goal to showcase the impact of football whether it’s a small town of 20 people managing to keep their club going, whether it’s Faroe Islands where most of the population plays football, or whether it’s a 4,000 people town reaching the highest tier of football in Sweden.

Our magazine and original content such as Eldsjäl were created with the intention to honor the football communities and their efforts, around the world.

How it all began

The idea for Football is everywhere started at the end of 2019, with the first idea to make it into a documentary which we started on during early 2020, with the first one being about Capri which we happened to be working on, when Italy went into a full lockdown. For the rest of that year, football was practically illegal. At the start of 2021 we really gathered ourselves as started working on the first issue, North of Sweden. Now with the decision that Football is Everywhere will become a printed magazine.

Patrycja "Pato" Jerzak - Founder

Hey there, my name is Pato Jerzak and I am a professional football player and also the person behind the idea of “Football is Everywhere”. The reason why I decided to start is because I firstly want to show the beauty and importance of football in communities but also to make it possible for everyone to play football. I have grown up in a privileged country where I never was stopped from playing football. But in many places, playing football is not possible for everyone, especially for women. I am on a mission to change that.
