After just ten months, MacAnthony Media has blown the whistle on TwentyFour7Football magazine and the current issue 11 will be the last. The web page already redirects.

Launched by the Darragh MacAnthony, chairman of Peterborough United, last March, the magazine’s aim was to become number one in the market within twelve months.

As the Peterborough Telegraph reported, “He plans to distribute 60,000 copies of the first edition … and is confident readership will soar towards the 70,000 mark within a year.”

Peterborough were relegated from the Championship last season. MacAnthony faces a fraud investigation by a Spanish court.

Back of the net!
