With the new Premier League season about to kick off this month, there are lots of opportunities for retailers to cash in on sales of football trading cards from the leading suppliers.

And as children are allowed to shop more freely and make swaps at school, the 2021/22 season should prove a bumper time.

Panini
Panini is due to launch its official Premier League Adrenalyn XL trading cards this Thursday (August 5), with the inclusion of authentic signatures in blind wrapped multipacks, in addition to printed signatures.

The range includes:

• Pocket tins including six packets and two limited edition cards. RRP £6.99.
• Mega tins with eight packets, one limited edition and one Golden Baller. RRP £9.99.

FSDUs will be available to all retailers, offering a great way to display all product lines, while capitalising on the strong Premier League brand.

10,000 POS packs will be boxed out to Independent convenience retailers, including a letter with all collection details and marketing timings, a window poster and shelf talker to aid displays.

Topps
The Topps Match Attax trading card game is also due to launch this month – on August 26 – featuring nine UK clubs, with the newly formed UEFA Conference League joining the Champions League and Europa League.

The new range includes limited edition cards and real autograph cards on high quality foil.
