Post Keys and Gray we started recording the podcast because we knew a different set of fans was being neglected.

We’re unique, one of a kind in the football podcast world and we quite like it when new listeners happen upon us.

We’re still fairly new on the scene, we’ve had some great support from footballers, industry folk and fellow broadcasters. We’d love that to continue.

Please feel free to get in touch about press opportunities.


In December 2016, The Offside Rule Podcast compiled the Top 100 Women’s Footballers of 2016, voted for by players, coaches and journalists around the world.

The subsequent results gained much attention around Europe, Lyon’s official English account were quick to jump on the fact their very own Ada Hegerberg was voted number one.

Major French newspaper L’Equipe also covered our list, as did France Football and Icelandic website Visir. Lyon and France centre-back Wendie Renard was also very happy to be included in the top 10!
