From the publisher: 

Nutmeg magazine and The Herald have joined forces to produce a stunning print and online collaboration to celebrate the upcoming Euro 2024.

Utilising regular writers from both publications, the special issue will showcase the best long-form sports writing Scotland has to offer. 

Produced in the luscious style of quarterly magazine Nutmeg, the book is now available to buy on the run up to Euro 2024, and Herald subscribers can enjoy the release of articles in the lead up to the opening game of the tournament when Scotland face Germany in Munich.

We have some spectacular content with writers from both organisations contributing. This includes an exclusive interview with Steve Clarke written by Dani Garavelli, reminiscence about Euro 1996 as veteran journalist Graham Spiers recalls the ecstasy and agony of his first tournament as a young sports writer, Hugh MacDonald's look at the fan experience at German grounds and how it compares to Scotland, and much more.

The 196-page book is the must have item for every football fan, whether they are making the pilgrimage to Bavaria for the opening game or settled on their sofa at home.
