The Athletic launches

The Athletic, an online subscription service for sports content, is available in the UK from today. Billed as the new home of football writing, The Athletic promises to give fans the content they want, from journalists they trust, on a website and mobile app in a clean easy-reading format.

At the same time, the company launches its online employee benefits scheme with BizFlakes which promises access to benefits they want on a mobile-responsive website in a clear, consistent and good-looking interface.
