World Football Statue Database

The table below can be sorted by each column; simply click on the appropriate heading.

Each listed subject name links you to a page containing photos of each statue, and more detailed information about that statue.

Each listed location links to a location map if applicable. Alternatively statues can be viewed and selected by location using the database map.

Notes:
Where statues depict multiple subjects, each subject is listed in a separate row of the table.
Dates are given in UK format i.e. day/month/year.
Unveiling dates refer to the unveiling of a statue in its original public location; where statues have subsequently been relocated this is noted on their specific page.
For individual statue page inscription transcriptions, any text in parentheses is part of the actual inscription; text in square brackets is comment, further information or designation of a following translation.
All photos are copyright of the named photographer.
* For these statues unveiling dates are estimates only.
** Multiple sculptors/creators (see statue's page for full listing).
