UEFA.com has teamed up once more with Mike Hammond to bring out the 2010/11 edition of the European Football Yearbook – 1,120 packed pages of comprehensive information looking back at the 2009/10 UEFA and domestic competitions.
The book has existed for over two decades, and this is the fourth time that Hammond has been associated with UEFA.com. UEFA's involvement lends this invaluable publication added authenticity and credibility as a reference, while Real Madrid CF coach José Mourinho provides the foreword.
The European Football Yearbook 2010/11 has details of every major match played across the continent last season at club and international levels. The book is a must for statisticians, giving full details of each European league's premier division – with every club individually analysed. Facts and figures are complemented by a narrative seasonal review of football in each country. In addition, the book records events at the summer's FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
"The European Football Yearbook is now packed with more information than ever before," said Hammond. "We have increased the size this year to incorporate comprehensive coverage of the FIFA World Cup, and we have also included, for the first time, dates of birth for all players in the nation-by-nation league appearance lists.
"I believe that in the second decade of the 21st century the publication continues to be a unique, authoritative and invaluable reference – both in the short and long term – and one that gives value for money too."
All the UEFA competitions contested in 2009/10 are covered, both at club and international levels, together with the major youth, women's and futsal events. Each country's season is reviewed in all its facets. These include the national team – with individual appearances by every player – how the clubs performed on the European stage, the league tables of the top two divisions, and each club's results, goalscorers and player appearances.
Colour profiles spotlight the 100 most influential players to feature in European football in 2009/10. Details are also given of all 53 UEFA member associations, their national colours and change strip, and the clubs playing in the major UEFA club competitions – the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League – with logos, national maps and club locations supplied as an attractive graphic accompaniment.
