Starting in December, ESPN Magazine and Sports Illustrated will have direct competition from one of the most popular sports they cover — NFL football.
The National Football League is releasing their own monthly magazine on December 13th that offers "a true ‘insider’s’ perspective”.
The first issue will include articles from contributors including San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, Panthers quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton, and Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, along with commentators Boomer Esaison and Andrea Kremer.
“We know that 140 characters is not enough to tell the stories that NFL fans need to read about their heroes. The League’s publication will be able to go places other magazine can’t go, all with a true ‘insider’s’ perspective.”
The sports magazine will offer a $19.90 yearly subscription plan, while retailing at $5.50 per issue on the newsstands. With the holidays just around the corner, we're sure the NFL is banking on friends and families purchasing a year's worth of the new magazine for their favorite football fanatic.
Will U be making the switch and getting your monthly football news from NFL Magazine?
