Icons’ products are all limited-edition items. Over the past 13 years we’ve carried out more than 100 signing sessions with the world’s greatest footballers. We meet players regularly throughout the UK or in their home cities across the globe. It’s Icons’ special relationship with these players that allows us to bring you closer to your heroes.

RANGE Every product is delivered in our exclusive high-end presentation packaging or framed to the highest standard in our exclusive Icons style. Each item comes with the Icons Certificate of Authenticity which details the date and location of the signing session the product came from, and shows a photograph of the player signing the item.

For each signing we source authentic shirts and boots as worn by the player and classic images from their careers. Over the next few pages you’ll see some of the biggest stars in the Icons roster. However, this is just a taste of the full Icons line-up – make sure you visit icons.com to view our full range of signed memorabilia from over 75 players and 35 clubs and countries.

LIONEL MESSI

Andrés Iniesta

In 2011-12, Barcelona’s mercurial star scored an astonishing 82 times to put beyond dispute his reputation as the best player in the world. Once dubbed the “new Maradona” by the great man himself, Leo has since surpassed that billing to become a phenomenon in his own right, winning the Champions League three times and La Liga five times. Icons have worked with Leo since May 2006.

The heartbeat of Spain’s unstoppable national team, Andres Iniesta scored the winner in the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ final and has won two European Championships. At club level his resume is no less impressive, with three Champions League winners’ medals and five La Liga titles with Barcelona. With his stylish passing, movement and memorable goals Iniesta is one of the modern greats of the game.

Pep Guardiola

cristiano ronaldo

As if his legacy as one of the key players in Barcelona’s all-conquering side of the ‘90s wasn’t enough, Pep Guardiola’s reign as manager of the Catalan side proved to be one of the most successful in the club’s history. Amassing a team that included the likes of Leo Messi, Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta, the sharp-suited tactician led Barca to a stunning fourteen titles in his time there.

In one incredible 12-month period with Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo won the Premier League, Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup and Ballon D’Or and was voted FIFA World Player of the Year. Quick, strong, skilful and lethal from set-pieces, in 2009 he moved to Real Madrid for €94m and it still seemed like a bargain. Icons held its first signing session with Ronaldo in May 2005.

Eric Cantona

Wayne Rooney

Eric Cantona is an undisputed Premier League legend. During his time at Manchester United the Frenchman led the club to their first league title in 26 years and from there the silverware just kept on coming. Renowned for his stylish play, fiery temperament and exceptional skill, he may have retired in May 1997 but his reputation as one of the most exciting talents to grace English football lives on.

Wayne Rooney announced himself on the European stage when, as the world’s most expensive teenager, he hit a devastating hat-trick on his Champions League debut for Manchester United. In the years since, he’s become England’s talisman and built up a staggering portfolio of success with United, including four Premier League titles, one Champions League medal and countless breathtaking goals.

STEVEN GERRARD

Luis Suárez

Probably the most influential midfielder in the world, Steven Gerrard has it all: power, pace, technique, a ferocious shot and the heart of a lion. He seems to specialise in crucial goals, none more so than when he inspired the greatest ever Champions League final comeback to win the trophy for Liverpool against AC Milan on an unforgettable night in Istanbul in 2005.

After a fantastic 2010 FIFA World Cup™ where Luis Suarez helped Uruguay to the semi-final, the sharp shooting forward moved to the Premiership in a £22.8m January transfer to Liverpool from Ajax. Since his arrival he has been nothing short of sensational. Luis is already adored by the Anfield faithful as he graces the iconic Number 7 shirt, and is destined to become a worldwide superstar.

Neymar

Ronaldo

Regarded as one of the most exciting talents to hit the international stage in years, Neymar has the world at his feet. Tipped by Pele to drive Brazil to glory at the 2014 FIFA World Cup™, he already has three league titles with Santos and a FIFA Goal of the Year award under his belt. His quickfooted flair and incredible pace make him a joy to watch – but it’s his lethal finishing that looks set to make him a legend.

No discussion of the greatest players of all time would be complete without Ronaldo. During his career the Brazilian struck an astonishing 414 times, winning the FIFA World Cup™ twice, two Copa Americas and a trio of FIFA World Player of the Year awards along the way. The greatest goal scorer in FIFA World Cup™ history, he is a legend like no other. Icons have completed four signings with Ronaldo across his career.

pelé

diego maradona

Pelé is frequently hailed as the greatest player of all time. He is the only player to have won the FIFA World Cup™ three times, and one of just four to have scored in two FIFA World Cup™ finals. In 92 matches for Brazil he found the net 77 times and ended with a career record of 1,281 goals in 1,363 games. His yellow Brazil shirt has been an Icons bestseller since our first signing with him in 2005.

Colourful, controversial and possessed of outrageous skills, Diego Maradona is quite simply one of the greatest players ever to have graced a football pitch. He drove Argentina almost single-handedly to win the 1986 FIFA World Cup™, scoring his sublime “goal of the century” against England in the quarter-final along the way. Icons travels regularly to Buenos Aires to conduct signing sessions with Maradona.
