Pelé – The Opus celebrates a footballing maestro, a sporting ambassador and icon who has been a servant to the sport for over 65 years. When Pelé made his World Cup debut aged 17 in Sweden, Brazil had never won football’s most coveted trophy. However, when he retired from international football, 12 years later, Brazil were the most successful nation in the history of the competition. Pelé is a three-time World Cup winner – 1958, 1962 and 1970.
The Maradona Opus is the result of an official collaboration with the now departed footballing genius, Diego Armando Maradona. Charting the journey from his humble beginnings playing street football in the shanty town of Villa Fiorito, to his crowning glory of captaining Argentina to World Cup success in Mexico ’86, and beyond. Maradona’s career is celebrated through a collection of wonderfully evocative photographs reproduced on an unprecedented scale.
