Aug 18, 05:00 AM

SportsPro editorial director Michael Long is on the pod this week to comb through a week of industry news headlined by the launch of the Africa Super League (ASL).

Alongside regulars George Breare and Tom Bassam, the panel discuss Fifa's role in the new competition's rollout, the ASL's vague finances and CAF governance.

Conversation then turns to the National Football League (NFL) and how its increasingly close ties with Amazon may lead to a game being played on Black Friday.

Also covered off are the plight of two brands - Cazoo and Peloton - who have major reach in the sports industry but are now having to plot a retreat.

The show then closes out with a few 'under the radar' stories and listener questions.
