In 2009 scientists discovered dolphins playing football with jelly fish off the coast of Wales (unfortunately for the jelly fish they were not the opponents!). Some believe they have been playing this game for hundreds, if not thousands of years.

At Football Earth we have known this for some time and here in Britain, in 2008, we first brought this to the attention of The Non-League Paper. Except it is not just dolphins that have been playing football for thousands of years, but the whole of the animal kingdom!

Football Earth is a weekly panel cartoon about animals who play the beautiful game that has now featured in over 425 panels. As well as in The Non-League Paper, where the game continues to thrive, it has also featured in BeanoMAX, and currently She Kicks Magazine.

Proving that the natural game is truly an international sport, the panel also features regularly in the USA, where it is called Soccer Earth (I know...), and in Italy as Il calcio nel mondo animale. In 2015 and 2016 every month was brightened by a fresh cartoon courtesy of Carousel Calendars. and kitchens and bedrooms all over the world can be improved by a Football Earth roller blind produced by Creatively Different. And now in 2017, for the first time, a collection of cartoons is available as a hard backed book published by Summersdale, entitled The Wild Side.

So if you are a fan of the natural game, and you want to see more action, visit the gallery on this website, check out any of the above publications, buy The Wild Side from a good bookshop or get a fresh cartoon delivered every week into your inbox by Go Comics
