deCoubertin Books is a leading independent publisher, which publishes outstanding non-fiction titles predicated on high editorial and production values. We work with some of the biggest names in sport and sportswriting and our books have been nominated for numerous awards.
The principles underlying the project on its 2009 foundation were simple: to have meticulous editorial standards; to pursue excellence in design and to bridge the worlds of physical and digital. Furthermore, we felt it important to only take on projects we passionately believed in.
That mantra has served us well. Today our authors represent a distinguished slice of international sport and media. The footballers we have on our books share a combined 431 international caps, 20 English league titles, 11 FA Cups, 5 European Cups, 2 World Cups as well as Serie A, Bundesliga, SPL and Footballer of the Year medals. They have played for or managed clubs including Manchester United, Real Madrid, Arsenal, Liverpool, Everton, Manchester City, AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund, AS Roma, Rangers and Fiorentina. They also include journalists, contributors and broadcasters from virtually every significant news organisation in the UK and beyond.
We believe supporting local charities and nonprofits in the communities we serve is more than just the right thing to do — it is a shared responsibility. We are a small company but believe that working with good causes is something that should be inherent in every business, no matter what its size. We are proud of our history of charitable giving and working in partnership with deserving causes and have helped raise thousands of pounds for causes close to our authors' hearts. These include The Neville Southall Foundation, Everton in the Community, the Everton Former Players Foundation, Stick N’ Step, the Lily Centre and the Waterloo Partnership.
