About World Football Insider
Since its inception in June 2009, World Football INSIDER has become the leader in news about the multi-billion dollar international football industry.
Published by Around the Rings, the pre-eminent source of news about the Olympic Movement, World Football INSIDER carries on the tradition of quality, in-depth reporting for which Around the Rings is acclaimed.
“We saw the need for a reputable publication about the business of international football,” says Publisher Sheila Hula about the formation of World Football INSIDER.
“Because football is an Olympic sport, it was a logical extension of our brand, which is already accepted as the industry leader worldwide,” Hula says.
World Football INSIDER is a primary source of news about preparations for the FIFA World Cups. We provided comprehensive coverage of the 2010 edition in South Africa, the first World Cup on African soil, and are reporting week in week out on the 2014, 2018 and 2022 World Cups in Brazil Russia and Qatar. Over the last two years, INSIDER led the way in our comprehensive coverage of the unprecedented contest among 10 different bids for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.
