Happy New Year and welcome to 2024! It’s a significant year for FourFourTwo – we turn 30 later this year, and we’re working on plans to celebrate our anniversary.

Back in 1994 when FFT first hit the shelves, the football and media landscapes were very different to how they are now. We don’t take it for granted that people still want to read the magazine that we produce, so we try our best to evolve, keeping it interesting and relevant with interviews, features and stories you haven’t read anywhere else.

If anyone in British football knew exactly how to reinvent themselves and stay relevant, it was Sir Alex Ferguson, who won titles with Aberdeen and Manchester United in four different decades. As the first issue of FFT rolled off the printing presses, Manchester United’s dominance of English football was starting to take hold, as they won their first domestic Double. Two years later, they did it again, then in 1999, they bagged an unforgettable Treble.

It’s now 25 years since Ferguson led the club to his most famous triumph, and more than a decade since he exited Old Trafford – we look back on his remarkable legacy on both sides of the border. Enjoy the mag and have a great year.
