About

The Sack Race is a football news website with a difference, one that is dedicated to bringing supporters an alternative view of the beautiful game: the weird, wonderful and mysterious world of football management.

In recent years, the terms; "sack race", "managerial merry-go-round", "axed", "shown the door" amongst others, have become synonymous with football. As the pressures for success continue to grow, so do the consequences and that ultimately results in the managers of football teams losing their jobs, but have no fear we are here to tell you all about it!

More managers than ever before are being sacked by their clubs, and conversely young managers being poached from the lower leagues. The guys behind thesackrace.com found the need to begin reporting the latest names under pressure - breaking news as gaffers and clubs part company - and unearthing the rumours as managers are linked to the vacant positions.
