SPORTED!
Managing Editor: Chris Hunt

August 1996 to August 1998

 

Launching the general sports fortnightly Sported! as sister magazine to Match in 1997, backed by a TV advertising campaign the magazine sold 170,000 copies of its debut issue and was voted Emap's Launch Of The Year, but it was unable to sustain such high circulation figures in the face of dedicated football competition. Chris Hunt was at the helm for 45 issues of the magazine before stepping aside to concentrate on Match.
