Create a Football Sport Event Poster in Photoshop
Tutorials Photo Effects 40919 Views June 10th, 2016

Today's tutorial marks the start of UEFA Euro 2016. France will open the EURO 2016 football tournament against Romania. Learn how to create a soccer sports event poster in Photoshop using some basic blending techniques. The great thing about this tutorial is that you can easily personalize the poster by simply changing the abstract wallpaper image and the football player and the stadium stock images. That way you can create sport poster templates for any event you want like tennis, box, athletics, etc.


First you have to download the stock images that I have used for the Sport Event Poster tutorial:

Create new file with dimensions 1920x1080px and open the Rain Texture and add it into the new file. Resize it pressing CTRL+T. Blend mode is set to Overlay and opacity is set to 50%.

Now place the Colored Lines Abstract Wallpaper. Also open the Football Stadium stock image. Resize the stadium with the Transform Tool and set the blend mode to Multiply.

Open the Steven Gerrard stock image. This is a premium image from but you can of course replace it with any football player that you like. You can even use this tutorial for other sport events other than soccer. You can use it for American football for tennis or even box events.

Now we have to remove the background. To remove background in Photoshop you can use one of these Selection Tools : Quick Selection Tool, Magic Wand Tool, Polygonal Lasso Tool. If you want to obtain perfect results, the best cutout image method is to create a selection with the Pen Tool .

I will use the Quick Selection Tool to select the football player. Brush Size is set to 33. Create a layer mask to delete some parts in case your selection is not that good. That way you obtain a non destructive cutout effect. To delete some areas, use the Brush Tool with color black inside the mask layer.

Select Colorful Lines Wallpaper and Gerrad Image, use transform (CTRL+T) and Flip Horizontaly. Blend mode for Gerrard Layer is set to Lighten. That way we obtain a cool double exposure effect using the two overlaped images.

Open the Grungy Paper Texture and rotate it. Blend mode is set to Soft Light 10% opacity level.

Place Grunge Texture and set the blend mode to Overlay.
