SportsPro is a monthly British magazine that reports on the business and financial aspects of sports across the world. It has become known for its in-depth analytical studies, such as its 2009 valuation of the world's 200 most valuable sports properties.[1]

History[edit]

SportsPro was founded by journalist and publisher Tom Rubython in 2008 to replace BusinessF1, Rubython's previous magazine. This transformed the publication into a business title that covered the entire sports industry as opposed to just Formula 1. The magazine was sold to London-based Henley Media Group in February 2009.[2]

Format and market[edit]

SportsPro focuses on all aspects of the business of sport. It provides news, analysis, statistics, features and special reports. Though it is based in London, it has a global readership, with nearly half of its subscribers based in the USA.

It is a perfect bound 132 or 164 (double issue) page magazine in full colour with editorial and advertisements, printed on matte art paper with a laminated soft cover.

Formerly available on newsstands, SportsPro is now entirely subscription-based,[3] and has more than 20,000 subscribers within the sports industry. Notable subscribers include the majority of the Formula One racing teams; the Glazer family, owners of Manchester United Football Club and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers; Tottenham Hotspur; and the International Olympic Committee.

Other publications[edit]

SportsPro Media also publishes the Formula One Black Book, an annual in-depth analysis of the business and sport of Formula One.[4]

The SportsPro Daily Deal is an e-newsletter service. It delivers details of all the sports industry deals done in the past 24 hours direct to thousands of email inboxes around the globe every weekday.
