It was a double celebration as they also received a Bronze Award in the Best Branded Content category for their JURGEN documentary they produced with Erdinger, up against brands such as Adidas, Amazon and Google.
It is the third time The Anfield Wrap have won the award, having also been chosen in 2016 and 2020, and they were also inducted into the Football Content Awards hall of fame in 2022 for “creators and businesses whose long-term achievements in the football media landscape deserve recognition”.
The Anfield Wrap started as a hobby in 2011, with one free podcast a week, and is now a business employing 12 people full-time from their office and purpose built studio in Liverpool City Centre. They produce bespoke free and subscription audio and video content daily for Liverpool supporters throughout the world.
John Gibbons – Head of Partnerships at The Anfield Wrap
“It was a fantastic night for the business, and great to win, especially on home turf at Anfield! To win for both our podcasts and a video documentary series shows the variety of quality work our very talented team produce on a daily basis. Hopefully it won’t be the last big Liverpool win of the season!”
John picked up the award on behalf of the team, with several of the other full time staff currently over in North America appearing at six live shows in six different cities. The award win was announced on stage in Vancouver to rapturous applause! The touring team will also visit Chicago, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Austin and Atlanta before returning just in time for Liverpool’s huge game against Manchester City this weekend. In March 2024 The Anfield Wrap return to America hosting six live shows on the East Coast, including New York and Washington DC, as they continue to promote and celebrate the football club and city throughout the world.
The Anfield Wrap are looking forward now to a successful 2024 on and off the pitch! They have recently started doing more production work for other media companies and organisations around the world, including For Soccer, The Premier League USA and NBC Sports, and see this as a key way to grow the business as well as showcasing the talent and passion within the city of Liverpool.
