History and profileEdit

She Kicks began as On the Ball in 1996, the first dedicated women's football magazine in England.[1] Original editor, Joanne Smith, and founder, Andrew Mullen, had wanted to call the magazine ElleFC, but an objection from Emap—publishers of Elle in the UK—led to a change of plan.[2] The name was changed to She Kicks, then Fair Game' in 2003,[3] before reverting to She Kicks in December 2009.

As of 2011 the editor was Jennifer O'Neill, a former Times columnist[3] and Sunderland Women footballer,[4] who also works as a television pundit on Eurosport's women's football coverage.[5]
