Roll up, Italian designers and all graphic designers! 



Zetafonts is promoting the first designer cup and the goal is to put creativity on the football field and score for your local team.



The font-development group is promoting a football poster tournament called ‘Coppa Stadio’.



The initiative is to celebrate the centenary of Italian type master Aldo Novarese's birth, creator of Stadio, a typeface developed in the 70s inspired by football.
