APR 2015


We take another leap forward this month with the launch of our new


website (which I’ve described in more detail on pages 33-34). As a result of the launch, and the expansion of our content commissioning plan, we’re about to increase the volume of content we publish under each journal by a further 30% and for all those of you with a subscription, this will be included at no extra cost as part of your current subscription. I’ve always believed strongly in supporting the people who have supported me and it’s become something of a sportEX tradition that whenever we increase prices, we hold our old prices for our current customers, the same will be true here.


Having said that, one of the main objectives of the new site was to give you greater flexibility regarding the content you purchase. If you want to downsize your subscription to just a given section of content or even a specific keyword, you can but you can rest assured that as we make the cutover to the new site, those of you with a current subscription will have access to the most content at a price than is unavailable to anyone else. It’s one of our small but important ways of saying thank you for sharing this journey.
