As the first website not to be behind a paid wall, we have made the news of the International Olympic Committee, the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the British Community Games and other major events more accessible than ever. has built a worldwide reputation for the superiority of its reporting and the breadth of its coverage. For many of our readers from more than 200 countries and territories around the world, the website is a vital part of their daily lives. The ping of our free daily email alert, sent every morning at 6.30am 365 days a year, arriving in their inbox, is as familiar a part of their day as their first cup of coffee.

Even during the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic, maintained its high standard of reporting all news from around the world on a daily basis. We were the first publication in the world to signal the threat posed by the Olympic coronavirus movement, and we have since provided unparalleled coverage of the pandemic.

As the world begins to emerge from the COVID crisis, would like to invite you to help us on our journey by funding our independent journalism. Your vital support would mean that we can continue to report so comprehensively on the Olympic Movement and the events that shape it. This would mean that we can keep our website open to everyone. Last year, nearly 25 million people read, making us the largest source of independent news about what’s happening in world sports.

Every contribution, whether large or small, will help maintain and improve our global coverage next year. Our small and dedicated team was extremely busy last year, covering the refurbished Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, an unprecedented logistical challenge that stretches our limited resources to the limit.

2022 will not be less busy or less challenging. We have the Winter Olympics and Paralympics in Beijing, where we send a team of four reporters, the British Community Games in Birmingham, the Summer World University and Asian Games in China, the Alabama World Games and many world championships. In addition, of course, there is the World Cup in Qatar.

We do this because we believe that sport belongs to everyone and everyone should be able to read information, regardless of their financial situation. While others try to benefit financially from the information, we are committed to sharing it with as many people as possible. The greater the number of people who can keep up with global events and understand their impact, the more sport will be forced to be transparent.
