The broadsheet will be the country's only dedicated sports newspaper and promises in-depth coverage of all sports from football to curling.

Targeted primarily at 18-44 year old ABC1 males, Sports First will have a 250,000 print run, with target sales of 100,000 and a cover price of 50p. The paper will carry a very high editorial to advertising ratio with only 25 per cent of its pages available to advertisers.
