The publication provides a comprehensive review of the last three months’ activity in the sports media rights market worldwide, together with original data from’s research team, presented in the form of easily-digested graphs, charts and tables.

Arranged by region and by sport, the Review draws on’s acclaimed daily sports industry news service to summarise all of the major media rights developments over the period, with the date on which the story originally appeared attached to it so that you can track unfolding developments.

For the first time, this issue includes a sponsorship section, containing unique research into the exposure received by shoe and clothing companies at Wimbledon and the US Open.

The sponsorship section will become a fixture in the Review as its scope is broadened to offer a comprehensive quarterly update on all sectors of the sports industry.

Other unique research in this issue includes: tables listing top television and new media rights deals worldwide; a Ryder Cup broadcasting summary; latest television deals for Euro 2008; and a breakdown of broadcasters and distributors of Serie A soccer rights.
