Welcome to the new-look, digital-only version of Sportcal Insight magazine.
Technology is rapidly changing the way people participate in, consume and monetise sport.
In this innovation and technology-themed issue, we spoke with sailing legend Sir Russell Coutts, who’s adding awards off the water to the dozens he won on it with SailGP, the new annual series, dubbed 'Formula 1 on water'.
We also caught up with Golden State Warriors president Rick Welts on his recent trip to London to learn about the NBA dominant force’s new high-tech, high-spec arena and took a trip out to Wolfsburg to see first hand how the Bundesliga is trialling the use of 5G technology during games.
Elsewhere, we analyse the growing emergence of cryptocurrency firms in soccer sponsorship, and ask what is the end goal, throw the spotlight on Budapest’s bid to become a global sports destination and dust off the crystal ball for a look at the future of esports.
I hope you enjoy the issue.
