"The collection of British football programmes and club magazines in British Library Newspapers is amongst the finest of its kind anywhere in the world. The holdings include both historic and contemporary items, with some titles currently still being received. The holdings listed date from the 1890s onwards and they include substantial runs of titles, notably those for Charlton Athletic (1934 onwards), Clapton Orient (1907-1939), Everton (1904-1939), Kilmarnock (1929-1940), Manchester City (1924-1969), Manchester United (1910-1934), and various Lanarkshire (1929-1940) football clubs.
In addition to these, the Newspaper Library also maintains major historic and contemporary runs of periodicals relating to football. The earliest holdings date from the 1870s; again, some titles are currently being received."
