Andrew Brown wrote ‘The most blinding and obvious deficiency of football as a religion is that it lacks any kind of theology— and excludes many women,’ for The Guardian in 2013; and we’re proving him wrong in our biggest issue to date.

With the World Cup (essentially a football pilgrimage every four years) kicking off this month, and the Heavenly Bodies- Fashion and the Catholic Imagination exhibition at the Met Museum, it seemed timely to explore religion and faith via the female focused football and fashion stories we tell.
