Football Association of Wales
Design, Art direction

A historic year for the Football Association of Wales, the biggest sporting event of the 2017 calendar saw Cardiff playing host to both the men’s and women’s UEFA Champions League finals. Departures worked with the FAW to create a commemorative book that would document the Association’s Champions League journey – that not only celebrated what was an unforgettable weekend, but offered an insight into how the Football Association of Wales, Cardiff and Wales succeeded in hosting the footballing showpiece event.
         A cloth bound, copper foiled cover packaged a wealth of imagery and stories, with the book recreating the spirit of this historical event and reflected on its impact on Welsh football.
