VERSATILE BOOK PUBLISHERS
Sport Media has years of expertise across the spectrum of book publishing. We can produce a wide variety of formats to suit your needs, from high-end hardback picture books to autobiographies, paperbacks and official gift titles. As a versatile production unit, we can react quickly to give your club or organisation a top class title on the book shelves in record time, enabling us to capitalise on sales opportunities. Sport Media will this year publish the official story of Wales' Rugby Union Grand Slam. We have also published popular yearly season guides for Celtic FC, Chelsea FC and Everton FC as well as best-selling personal books with top name stars.
INNOVATIVE AND FORWARD-LOOKING
Sport Media will go the extra mile to produce sports books that catch the eye and appeal to readers. We understand the passions and reading habits of sports fans and work hard to find a formula that will stand out from the rest. Sport Media have published imaginative titles like The Official Family Tree, which takes sporting heroes back to their roots or books that celebrate the fans' experience, such as songbooks, banners books and kit books. As cutting edge publishers, we also publish our titles in e-book form, from standard page turners for Kindle to rich media versions for tablet.
Sport Media has an extensive library of amazing photography at our fingertips. We have used this prized resource to produce many successful book titles, celebrating famous moments in sporting history. In 2011 we published the popular 'Chelsea Uncut', a rich pictorial celebration of Chelsea Football Club's Stamford Bridge home. 'FA Cup 100' was another beautifully presented title that we produced for Everton Football Club.
