Icons.com is a football website that provides regular diary updates from many of the UK's top footballers and also guest interviews from some of the biggest names in the football world. It is the leading portal for footballer websites in the world, housing official personal websites of around 70 players.

Football fans have access to diaries about the inside workings of a football club and their lives as professional footballers, as well as other sections focusing on their biographies and lives off the pitch.

In the past, several high-profile players have used Icons.com to announce major breaking-news stories. For example, Marc Overmars became the first player in history to announce a big-money transfer via his personal website in 2000, when he left Arsenal for Barcelona in a £25 million move. Former Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United striker Frederic Kanoute, now with Sevilla, once reported via his Icons website that he was safe and in hiding after he'd received death threats from Mali fans after a disappointing performance for his country. These are just two examples of many where the following day's newspaper headlines were read first on Icons.com.
