If you are a fan of both football and the world of signed football memorabilia, then Icons is a company that could very well serve your needs. The company positions itself the leader in its field of trading signed merchandise of many sporting icons, including Olympic athlete, boxers and above all football players. We are interested to hear from those that have bought from the site what their experience was and if they would recommend the site to others seeking signed merchandise.
The business was founded in 1999 by Edward Freedman, previously the managing Director of Tottenham Hotspurs and before that managing director of Manchester United’s merchandising. He was later joined by CEO Dan Jamieson, who had experience working at the Guardian, The Observer and Channel 4 and a set of other professionals, and generally, football enthusiasts. Icons was the first every company retailing signed football memorabilia to get an official license to do so fromFIFA in 2010, in order to create a range of signed World Cup products. Since then they have done the same for the world cups of Brazil 2014 and Russia 2018, as well as being granted a license to sell Champions League memorabilia, and are now a global brand supply to over 90 countries every year, with specialised products for countries such as Australia, Spain and North America, with their own demands for football memorabilia. Lionel Messi now only sells signed memorabilia through Icons, and some players have even used their personal Icons account to announce their own transfer to another team.
