Revolutionizing Football: Jock Stein and the Stylo Matchmakers Era
In the rebellious football landscape of 1974, Jock Stein, the Scottish maestro of Celtic F.C., made a revolutionary move by signing up with Stylo Matchmakers as the boot sponsor for the club. Stein, a legendary figure in British football, joined the ranks of iconic managers like Revie, Clough, Shankly, and Paisley, all of whom played a pivotal role in elevating Stylo Matchmakers to new heights.
Just as George Best and Pele had done before, Jock Stein added his influence to the Stylo Matchmakers legacy, proving that top-tier managers recognized the essence of quality football gear. Stein, the trailblazer who led Celtic to be the first British side to win the European Cup in 1967, left an indelible mark on the game. The Stylo Matchmakers boots became more than just footwear; they were a symbol of a footballing revolution.
In his thirteen remarkable years at Celtic, Stein achieved unparalleled success, securing the European Cup, ten Scottish league championships, eight Scottish Cups, and six Scottish League Cups. A coalminer turned football legend, Stein’s journey mirrored the resilience and spirit of Stylo Matchmakers. The Heirship Seventy Four, inspired by the era but named in homage to its timeless appeal, stands as a testament to the rebellious soul that both Stein and Stylo Matchmakers shared.
