Ed Warner on sport finance to Yellow Jersey

Rights - NonFiction Tuesday, 14th March 2017


Frances Jessop at Yellow Jersey Press has bought Powerplay by chair of UK Athletics and City financier Ed Warner. Yellow Jersey has world rights from Carrie Kania at C&W Agency, and will publish in May 2018.

The book is billed as lifting the lid on the finances that drive sport. Jessop said: "Ed Warner has had a ringside seat in sport for a decade. His fascinating insight and experience, coupled with his financial background, make him the perfect person to reveal how money makes the world of sport go round."

Warner said: "Sport is big business. Only when you examine the flows of money off the field of play can you really understand what you are seeing on it. In Powerplay I aim to provide fans with that understanding from my decade at the heart of sport."
