Read Rio's new magazine

Issue 4 of #5 - Rio Ferdinand's very own digital magazine - is now online.

The bi-monthly magazine, which covers sport, personality and style, is available to read for free at

The digital magazine takes its name from Rio’s shirt number for both United and England. No self-promotion or vanity, #5 is the number that has charted Rio’s rise from a South London council estate to the global stage.

As the editor-at-large, Rio has launched the digital magazine to provide a rare insight into what interests him in his roles as a footballer, icon and parent – very much the antithesis of the modern day ‘Bentley and Bling’ footballer.

The latest issue includes David Haye talking exclusively to #5 about Marvin Gaye, junk food and fighting giants, features about man of the year Dizzee Rascal and Quentin Tarantino's life on film plus girls frolicking in the snow, street fashion and the finest skills in football.
