Special Day, Special Offer
Celebrate my birthday with 30% off Sports Politika paid subscriptions.
It’s my birthday today and I've decided to do something a little different.
Instead of receiving gifts, I'm offering readers the opportunity to support Sports Politika with a 30 percent discount on paid subscriptions.
Over the past few months, I’ve used this newsletter as an outlet to discuss how sports and politics intertwine, examining the societal impact, cultural shifts, and global dynamics that shape the games we love. I’ve also used this newsletter as a platform to write personal essays about the death of NYT Sports last month, how to piss off a Russian oligarch, and answering subscriber questions such as “Are the death threats worth it?”
Your contribution to Sports Politika will enable us to:
Produce High-Quality Content: Your support will help us maintain the quality and depth of our content, ensuring that we continue to deliver thought-provoking analysis and commentary.
Expand Our Reach: With your help, we can reach a wider audience, engaging more individuals in these important conversations about sports and politics.
Guest Contributors: Your support will enable us to collaborate with guest contributors, bringing diverse perspectives to our reporting.
Community Building: We're committed to fostering a vibrant community around the intersection of sports and politics. Your contribution will help us organize events, webinars, and discussions to connect like-minded individuals.
While Sports Politika has operated as a free-to-read website to date, I plan on increasing the incentives for paying subscribers over the coming weeks. Much of the archive will be behind a paywall while longforms such as “The football fans who helped topple Egypt’s regime” will also be limited to paying subscribers.
I am thankful for the support of so many people who have helped get Sports Politika to where it is today. And I look forward to celebrating continued successes with you.
