  • Best long form sports writing anywhere

    By bobgoldberg
    Love reading the Athletic!!
  • Fantastic product

    By Ninersfan123453
    I tried the Athletic after getting frustrated with yahoo and ESPN being nothing but adds and headlines to generate clicks but no substance to the articles. What I found was by far the best site I have come across for sports. Not only is the site and mobile experience add free so you can focus on the writing, but the articles are fantastic. There is a wide range of in depth analysis and topics you can’t find anywhere else. Not just the what but also the why and how makes this a much better read. Can’t imagine using anything else for my sports news and analysis in the future. Keep up the good work!

    Better than anything ESPN releases but hey just my opinion
  • Great sports app

    By Chucks Daly
    This is a great sports app to stay updated with your favorite team, players, and news...
  • Horrible.

    By JPS1960
    Can’t get them to return an email message as I cannot get gift certificate to work. What a ripoff. Beware.
  • Great, but needs in-game updates

    By Jeem D
    I’ve been very pleased with The Athletic since purchasing my subscription and the app as a whole is great and enhances its value. However, the only thing keeping it from being my sole sports app is the lack of in-game updates. It would be nice if I could get a notification every time there is a score or at certain stages of the game as I have been able to do with the Espn, cbs sports, and league-specific apps.
  • Great writers, terrible business practice

    By PJuebebdjaoapx
    Charged my account 65 bucks when was told I’d have $1 for 90 days. Thankfully Apple refunded the money. You’re weak, Athletic!

    By Shmerrrrremer
    Great writers. Great articles/content. All around great experience. Highly recommend to all my fellow sports junkies.
  • Great stories

    By Scrote12
    These are the stories that everyone wants to read about. Who doesn’t love rankings from powerful writers and ex executives. Continue the great work and a matter of time before every sports fan is a member.
