‘Voetbal International-term, a monthly magazine’
Christiaan Reusink, the editor-in-chief of Voetbal International, thinks that the magazine is on deadline for a monthly magazine must be in order to survive.
That he says in the interview with the Newspaper. “The magazine is finite. That is, within a few years to happen.”
“I see VI in the future as a football club with something for everyone. Sport, sports, amateur, women’s football. Where you training download. I spawn on a seizoenkaart. And then it’s no more about the magazine, but about VI. That should never be lost.”
With VI Pro was there an online business model used. Reusink has been striving to be more specials to launch. “I believe one hundred percent in digital subscriptions for distinctive stories. If you have more specials, and you still have a magazine, that once hurt you. The editorial staff is now all on his gums. At the time that the editors can’t handle it or the readers are to a monthly magazine, we are.”
The printoplage ran back five years from 155,000 to over 94,000 copies. In 2016, the suffering of the magazine, which is part of WPG Publishers BV, a loss of 1.5 million euro. Also went to Soccer International restructure, and there were redundancies.
“The edition is already for a long time under pressure, and also the general expectations around print does not work in our advantage,” explained publisher, Robert van den Ham at the time. “It is prudential not justified to VI with 72 people resourcing.”
