world cup, charity, beer? best summer ever

with the world’s eyes on russia this summer for the 2018 FIFA world cup, creative agency middleboop in collaboration with london-based designer callum stephenson commissioned 20 artists and designers for a unique charity initiative. the designers have printed 23 unique beer mats which represent their favorite, weird or hilarious world cup moments — ranging from david beckham’s famous red card in france in 1998, to the unrelenting and unescapable buzzing of the vuvuzelas in 2010 in south africa.

the mats will be sold to pubs around london, but are also available online. all money that middleboop and stephensonmake will go to the charity football beyond borders for a ‘main office, a learning hub used for all [their] non-fbb schools programmes (holiday provisions, youth voices etc) and a safe haven for young people in london from disadvantaged backgrounds.’
