Soccer Scene is a football fanatics paradise that specializes in soccer and rugby clothing, shoes, gifts
and just about every club memorabilia imaginable. The Company has been trading successfully
within the London W1 area since 1969, Carnaby Street since 1980 and now the new store in Covent
Garden. The Company was the original a specialty shop within the area and was the trailblazer as
a Major outlet for soccer and rugby replica kits and allied products in the United Kingdom.

Soccer Scene and Rugby Scene are proud to have the reputation of helping to take Carnaby Street
and recently Covent Garden into the new millennium, by being the equivalent of 'Lord John' and
'John Stephens' when they were at their peak in the 1960’s. Soccer Scene and Rugby Scene are
regularly quoted in the National and International Press as a leading authority on the replica kit
market. It is commonplace for the Company to be hosts to both British and Foreign film crews. The
Soccer Scene shop in Oxford Street was recently featured in the film ‘Bend it like Beckham’.
