Copycat, copycat, sitting on the doormat…

During our extensive months of research for new title – ‘Fully Programmed’ we couldn’t help noticing that some matchday programmes bore a remarkable likeness to those that had gone before…

Homage…. recycling…. nicking… whatever you want to call it here are some of the best examples.

Bristol City wait 6 years to give this Leicester design another airing…

Bury hopng that a bit of Arsenal double-season magic will rub off.

Exeter City mimic QPR’s distinctive pop-art 60s covers – when Croatia was still just the part of Yugoslavia where you went on holiday.

If you have any more examples – let us know…

  1. Cambridge in 1979/80 nicked the Brighton cover for 1978/79, replacing the Peter Ward photo with an illustration. Famously, Notts County nicked the Nottingham Forest programme photo cover of Forest players celebrating at the 1980 European Cup with a traced cartoon of Notts County players in around 1982.
