Scoop: “It has set off a bomb. Fuck it’s tremendous” – The Athletic guts the football teams from the Guardian, the Daily Mail and the Times.

We can reveal latest to exit are BBC’s David Ornstein and Guardian’s chief football writer Daniel Taylor.https://t.co/pcuTr9uN9H

One person briefed on the Athletic's plans told BuzzFeed News the US site is hoping to get 100,000 paid subscribers to fund its ambitious expansion into English football coverage.

Two sources said one subscription price point put forward would see subscribers pay “about £4 a month … or some sort of package where a reader pays £50 a year”. One source described it as “Netflix-like” pricing.

“They’re banking on a passionate football supporter willing to fork out £4 a month for some scoops about their team, and quality feature and match day writing,” the source said.
