Results are amazing to me at least The target demographic for collecting cards is surely under 10s and at very least under 12 and yet only 13% in this age-bracket. Am I missing something?

Collecting Football Trading cards in the UK and I suspect everywhere outside of the USA is very much seen as a childs activity rather than a collectors hobby.

As you can see this is not entirely the case! I'm glad that this forum gives collectors a place to discuss their hobby with other like minded collectors regardless of age.

I think this is the aspect I like most about the forum, by and large most people get on really well and suits all ages.

oh and the main target demographic for Match Attax & Adrenalyn XL is from 8-12 year olds. But yes definitely a pocket money product.

This is a huge surprise!

I'd have thought 10-16 groups would have a big majority but apparently not.

A lot of old 'Topps Footballer' cards and Panini League stickers from the 70's veterans out there!

I'm 18 soon hitting the 19 mark here in Ireland but don't collect Match Attax or Adrenalyn except for the Euro's this year as Ireland were in it.
I'm mainly a premium card collector such as futera or topps premier gold (from back when they were produced)
