fcbusiness magazine is pleased to again partner with luxury British footwear and clothing brand, Goodwin Smith for 2019.

The partnership will see fcbusiness staff showcase the Goodwin Smith shoe collection at industry events throughout 2019 whilst collaborating on a series of online features via the fcbusiness website discussing the synergy of football and fashion as well as a number of other branding options.


In addition, we will also be running a competition for a clothing gift card to be shared via the fcbusiness online and social media platforms (further details to come).



Commenting on the partnership, Jack Dyson, Brand/Marketing Manager, said: “We are delighted to extend our partnership with fcbusiness Magazine for another season as we continue to build a loyal following of customers and support from the football world.


“It’s important to us as a brand to engage in an environment that can best showcase our products and brand personality to our target audience and fcbusiness Magazine enables this. We’re excited to partner with new clubs and individuals in the coming months.


Goodwin Smith all began — as many great things do — outside a pub less than a mile down the road from where our HQ is today. Two rival shoemakers stood face-to-face arguing about which one of them could make the better shoe – Ernie Goodwin or Walter Smith.


Each man came from different backgrounds: Ernie a Manchester City right-winger, and Walt a hardy coal miner. They soon found they shared the same ideals: a passion not just footwear but quality footwear…and a good night out on the town! After that argument outside the pub, Goodwin and Smith decided to join forces. And now, 90 years later, little has changed. Although the infamous pub is long gone.



fcbusiness Editor, Aaron Gourley, added: We’re really excited to be working with Goodwin Smith once again. The high quality craftsmanship of their footwear ensures that in addition to being comfortable, we make a statement with how we look at meetings, events and conferences. As you know football is a very style conscious industry and we look forward to working with the team at Goodwin Smith to continue promoting the brand to the football industry.
