It had to happen

It had to happen: For the 3+ years that we’ve been running Your Wealth, it does surprise us that we’ve yet to run an out-and-out football issue. Sure, we ran Afcon a few years back, but does that really count? Afcon Egypt 2019 was a big thing for Egypt, so much so that even people otherwise apathetic to football were talking about it. It was a national moment in a way that European football will never be, no matter how many goals Salah scores.

So here it is: the inaugural Enterprise football season preview issue. With just a few weeks before the start of the new season, we revisit the tumultuous events of last season, look at the seismic changes currently underway in Spanish football, and take a look at what is happening in the transfer market. We also have the A-Z on Europe’s three most-competitive leagues — the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A — (sorry Bundesliga and Ligue Un fans, but one-team leagues aren’t that interesting).

And if football is near the top of your “things I don’t care about” list? Allow us indoctrinate you with some of the greatest goals ever scored (watch, runtime: 9:59).
