“Sonny has a great track record and a proven track record of creating amazing content, and we look forward to continuing to invest in digital publishing for football and our fans.”
Sonny’s sports books include the football guides The Footballing Machine, the Football Academy, the Official Guide to Football, and the Footballing Encyclopedia.
“This is an important and long-term agreement, which will allow us to bring the best content to fans, including in digital format,” said Sonny CEO Antonio Arruda.
“For more than 20 years, Sonny has been creating and publishing football content with an emphasis on quality, and it’s important to us that we continue to build on this legacy.”
