Match coverage[edit]

Goal.com UK[edit]

In September 2009, Goal launched Goal UK specialising in news from English football exclusively. In November 2010, Goal began a partnership with the Bundesliga to look closer at football in Germany and the business model behind a majority of its clubs. The UK edition is currently run by Chief Editor Sam Lyon.
