Belinda, Shaun and their five children, were very excited to start this family run football speciality business. Their eldest daughter, Shania, had played for many years and then after their youngest son, Taye, made the Emerging Jets in 2014, their realisation that Newcastle needed a speciality store was evident. Belinda has 25 years retail & business experience and decided to start this new Business venture at the end of 2015.
After months of planning, research and hard work, the dream became a reality when the perfect location became available in Kotara in February 2016. Belinda's goal was to provide fantastic customer service and offer everything to do with football with a variety of brands available at all price points in a relaxed family, fun environment. After becoming the Newcastle Jets Official Merchandise store in 2016 the business progressed and got a lot of exposure by having the game day merchandise store at the Stadium along with support from the players, fans and staff of the club.
Half way through 2017 Everything Football exceeded expectations, with this came the decision to take the business online and this website was started.
In September 2018 Westfield Management approached Belinda and offered her a prime location in the Kotara Shopping Centre and after months of consideration she opened the store in December 2018. The intention was to grow the business to another level, with intent to open in other Westfield Shopping Centres in the future.
A sudden decision made by a retail partner in September 2019 forced Belinda and Shaun to re evaluate the future of Everything Football and what would be best for their family moving forward. After months of trying new ideas, the decision was made to close the store front and in February 2020 they would concentrate on their online store and take the business MOBILE. This means you can book the shop to come to a venue or event in your area or purchase your items online and have them delivered to you FREE*.

Belinda and Shaun couldn't be more grateful for all the support from the Newcastle community since opening in 2016.
