award-winning sports writing

This year Yellow Jersey Press, an imprint of Vintage, is celebrating 20 years of award-winning sports writing with a victory parade of new sports publishing, promotions celebrating its groundbreaking books and a star-studded Hackney Empire event in association with Penguin Live.

Yellow Jersey Press launched in 1998, with Paul Kimmage’s William Hill Sports Book of the Year winner, Rough Ride. It set out to give a platform to brilliant stories, which just so happened to be framed within a sporting environment. Since then, its name has become synonymous with quality sports writing, with bestsellers from a string of sporting legends and acclaimed sports writers - including Bradley Wiggins, Frank Bruno, Diego Maradona, Tim Moore, Gary Imlach and Seve Ballesteros.
