The final of the 2008 season game was held at Fulham F.C.'s ground Craven Cottage in June 2009 and the game is now frequently referenced in news articles. In 2008, Hull City's Dean Windass noted that being in the latest kids' Match Attax collection was one of the notable differences now that his club was in the Premier League, whilst a Daily Telegraph article on unsung heroes in the Premier League made the point that such a player isn't everyone's must-have Match Attax Footy Card . Just prior to the 2010 FIFA World Cup, former Arsenal and England defender Martin Keown stated that Match Attax is a good family game that he plays with his younger son often. Shay Given, Theo Walcott, Kolo Touré, Cesc Fabregas and Rio Ferdinand have signed their Man of the Match or Hundred Club cards.
