In a world where Olympic Broadcasting rights are sold for $12 Billion and Manchester United yesterday became the first British soccer club to increase overall revenues in a year to more than €600 million, sport is becoming the business and technology story of the decade.

One Zero is at the heart of that.

“This is an event which has attracted global interest from the people who are shaping the future of sport,” said One Zero co-founder Rob Hartnett.

“One Zero is about bringing compelling and world class sporting stories to life in a way that has never been done before.”

“Lance Armstrong has been the most jaw dropping story in sport in 20 years,” added co-founder Richard Barrett, also of Pundit Arena.

“Everyone has an opinion but very few have heard his story at first hand with all the cards on the table.”

“Having him speak openly and with candour about his past, with a world class interviewer who we will be revealing shortly, is a signal of the intent of One Zero to tackle the major issues in sport from money and fans to technology and drugs.”
