SportsPro 100 Week: Celebrating a decade in the industry

Welcome to SportsPro 100 Week: Five days of content celebrating our landmark century of magazine issues.

SportsPro 100 Week: Celebrating a decade in the industry

One hundred issues. Ten years.

That’s a lot of sports industry interviews, features, statistical analysis and satirical jabs. A lot of looking forward, looking back, taking stock and taking punts. It’s glib in the extreme to suggest that plenty has changed in the world of sport – and SportsPro – over the past decade, but that doesn’t make it any less true.

To commemorate that landmark we’ve created the SportsPro 100, an in no way comprehensive list of the people and the developments that have coloured our history. Over the course of the week we'll be releasing the list in ten parts, starting today with ten athletes and ten deals. We’ve also delved back deeper into the industry decade gone by in SportsPro Years, again we'll be putting these up over the course of the week starting with 2008 and going all the way through to last year.

Let’s get the self-indulgent bit out of the way now: it’s on me to take this opportunity to thank the many, many individuals who have helped this publication get so far over the past decade; those who have worked for SportsPro and with us. You know who you are. It’s been fun, and there should be plenty more to come.

Here’s to the people and the events that will take us into the next century.
