App is a great addition to a superb subscription


I, like most, questioned the value in paying for a subscription. Do I pay for something I can so easily get for nothing? The answer is yes. The content doesn’t just inform, it helps me understand the game better and improves my enjoyment of the sport.

The app flows well. Feeds you the right stories if you’ve selected your favourite teams. Cuts out the rest. Has a clean but suave UI and is generally pleasant to read from.

I subscribe for hockey and bball. Worth it for both.

If you’re wondering just do it.

Happy subscriber, you won’t regret it


Subscribing to the athletic has been the best money I’ve spent in a long time, absolutely the best hockey coverage, every single writer is phenomenal, very easy to use app, the whole experience has been flawless

It’s now an everyday habit


What started as a cool way to keep up to date with the sport I love from across the globe has now became part of my daily routine.
