From the publisher: 

Gone are the days when every self-respecting place in Britain had a distinctive football stadium. After the Hillsborough disaster in 1989, a wave of modernization began that continues to this day.

A few years ago, stadium photographer Marco Magielse started a tour of stadiums where things are largely as they once were. Standing stands, roofs with a bend, wooden grandstand seats and rusty turnstiles - these became trips down memory lane. Magielse tried to capture the old British football spirit. Many of the stadiums he visited will not be around long; almost The Final Whistle sounds to them .

In Final Whistle Magielse, the 'Dutch Stuart Roy Clarke', has photographed 21 classic British stadiums, namely:

  • Ayr United FC, Somerset Park, Ayr, Scotland
  • Bexhill United FC, the Polegrove, Bexhill-on-Sea, England
  • Bohemian FC, Dalymount Park, Dublin, Ireland
  • Brentford FC, Griffin Park, London, England
  • Barnsley FC, Oakwell, Barnsley, England
  • Cliftonville FC, Solitude, Belfast, Northern Ireland
  • Derry City FC, Brandywell, Derry, Northern Ireland
  • Dundee FC, Dens Park, Dundee, Scotland
