GiveMeSport today announces the official launch of its first magazine - GiveMeSport Magazine - in stores across Central London now.
The 124-page first issue is available both online and from a variety of stockists across the capital, with Selfridges and Harrods among those making the magazine available to customers in their marquee stores.
England fly-half Danny Cipriani graces the front cover after his dramatic return to form last season, with the Sale Sharks number ten captured by acclaimed photographer Christian Oita. He discusses his decade in the media spotlight, and the highs and lows of a dramatic career to-date.

GiveMeSport Magazine was created to provide an alternative approach; an insight and depiction of athleticism that you won’t find elsewhere in traditional sporting media.
Becker & Bolasie
Interviews with a number of high-profile figures help achieve that, with six-time Grand Slam champion Boris Becker discussing his brand and business interests post-playing career - and the small matter of coaching Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic.
Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie discusses his rise from the bottom of the game to the Premier League, with international recognition from DR Congo opening his eyes to more than just football.
Connor Cook might be a household name in America, but the Michigan State quarterback is a relative unknown in the UK. He gives a glimpse into life as a sporting hero whilst studying for a degree, whilst triathlete Omar Nour discusses the factors that led him to triathlon and the marketing possibilities available to an athlete willing to take them.
Leon McKenzie opens up about his battle with depression, going from the highs of being a Premier League striker to the lows of a stint in jail and suicide attempt. Now a professional boxer, the 36-year-old has turned his hands to the family business under the tutelage of his champion father and uncle.
Alongside these hard-hitting interviews, there are thought-provoking features on a number of major sporting issues, including the battle for British TV between BT Sport and Sports, the rise of sport’s political power around the world and the growing importance of female fighters in the world of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
A closer look at how the Premier League are looking to develop young, English talent is also offered, along with the finer points of what makes World Wrestling Entertainment a multi-million dollar industry in the hands of Vince McMahon.
The rise of Twitter and it’s impact on sports journalism is also investigated, whilst Roland Ratzenberger is also remembered over 20-years after his death on the same weekend as Ayrton Senna.
It all makes for something different compared to current products on the market, with a contemporary aesthetic and stunning imagery throughout for the reader. That includes a pictorial feature with RoadKill, a South London skateboard crew, and a few legendary Panini stickers to get you yearning for World Cups of the past.
Put it all together, and you’ve got the all new GiveMeSport magazine. It’s available in stores across the capital from today, and you’ll be able to get it in a number of select stores in New York from Wednesday, 23rd July.
