Wherever there is passion, there are stories to be found and shared. Football fans are nothing if not passionate. To these fans, football is so much more than just a game; it inspires and unites individuals of all backgrounds. These fans each have stories to tell, from stories of wild derby games to the fond memories of playground kickabouts. Goal Click (instagram @goalclick), a new global football photography project, aims to capture and share some of these stories with the world. They find one person from every country and send them a disposable camera. The photographs that the photographers then take symbolise what football means to them on a personal and national level.

Over the Euros, Goal Click and adidas are partnering to host their first exhibition, which celebrates the Goal Click football community and creators as a whole. The exhibition will feature some of adidas’ current and historic products, Goal Click photos from countries all around the world, alongside images from Goal Click LDN; a new project featuring London based photographers on a mission to capture portraits of their football lives in London.

Goal Click were kind enough to ask Copa90’s own Axelle Courlander and David Vujanic to take part in Goal Click LDN and contribute to the exhibition. Axelle’s photography focuses on her love of women’s football, herself playing for Leyton Orient’s Women’s and being a diehard Chelsea Ladies fan. Whilst David’s contributions include photos previously taken photos in Serbia as part of the Goal Click/Copa90 collaboration and photos taken for Goal Click LDN.These give an insight into what football means to him, both as a football fan in London and as a Copa90 presenter.

If you’re a fan of the stories football creates and would like to see the beautiful game seen through an analogue lens, the exhibition will be held at BL_BK (27 Curtain Rd, London, EC2A 3LT). Entrance is free of charge and open to the public from the 10th June until the 10th July.

‘Chelsea Ladies v Manchester City Women's in the FA Cup Semi Final. I find it a huge privilege to be able to shoot and witness such talented players. My hero is Katie Chapman. I never thought I'd get to see her play, now I'm pitchside at most of these games. I'm also a diehard Chelsea fan.’ – Axelle Courlander

‘The main economic activities in The Urals are mining and metalwork, which deeply impact social life and football. The economic crisis in the country affects many parts of football, including financial support of the teams, the condition of pitches and even the availability of medical care at the stadiums.’ 						 ‘Life there is like 30 years ago in Soviet times. They have the same stadiums, the same citizens, the same interests in life and the same beliefs in politics and economics.’

‘I thought David Beckham would be a pretty cool guy. And damn did he prove me right. Beckham was a surprise guest at the new Manchester United kit launch at the London adidas store and his presence left many in awe. For me personally, it was surreal to host him in a store where I used to beg my mum for boots as a kid. The gentleman in the cap behind him with the gleaming smile is a school friend I hadn't seen for years. If a picture is worth a thousand words, well believe me, this is one.’ – David Vujanic
