Digital Sports Site The Athletic Surpasses 500,000 Subscribers
And hopes to double that – or better – by year end
Three years after launch, digital sports site The Athletic hits a major milestone. It has surpassed 500,000 subscribers, and it hopes to double that number by year end, says Bloomberg. Calling itself the new standard in sports journalism, The Athletic launched in 2016 as a subscription-only digital sports site that vowed to cover sports in-depth, better than anyone else. “Go beyond the box score with quality local and national sports coverage from an all-star team of writers. No ads, no clickbait — only stories with substance,” says The Athletic’s home page.
