The blog celebrates the fact that while all footy scoreboards have the same basic function, they can differ from ground to ground, and from town to town.

As Scoreboard pressure spreads its wings it will travel all over Australia, with photos and stories about footy and its scoreboards but also, from time to time, about music and travel and Australiana.

About Vin Maskell

Founder and editor of Stereo Stories, a partner site of The Footy Almanac. Likes a gentle kick of the footy on a Sunday morning, when his back's not playing up. Been known to take a more than keen interest in scoreboards - the older the better.


  1. Only aussie rules scoreboards? Pity, might have had a couple of good moments to add to this.

  2. Once we’ve photographed the 3000 or so Australian Rules scoreboards we’ll start on soccer, league, union,cricket, bowls, darts, tennis…Cheers
