Sports Interactive tops Developers’ League in Sunday Times survey
Sports Interactive is celebrating another emphatic victory this morning, having been listed as top computer games developer for the second year running in the yesterday’s Sunday Times’s Techtrack 100 list.

The Sunday Times ARM Tech Track 100 is the only league table of Britain’s fastest-growing unquoted technology companies, ranking firms by growth in sales over two years between 1999 and 2001.

During the period, Sports Interactive saw its sales rise 83 per cent a year from £664,000 in 1999 to £2.2m in 2001 – a performance which enabled the firm to grab 61st place in the table.

“In what has been a difficult period for technology companies as a whole, we are delighted to have been awarded the accolade of top games developer by The Sunday Times,” says Miles Jacobson, managing director, Sports Interactive. “We’re confident that we can continue the company’s impressive track record, as Sports Interactive looks to further its interests both inside the world of football and out. Being named number one developer for the second year running is testament to the hard work put in by everyone here at Sports Interactive."

Sports Interactive is best known as developer of the hit series of Championship Manager computer games. It has recently announced the development of Championship Manager 02/03 exclusively for Microsoft’s Xbox. Other titles in development include Championship Manager 4 and Eastside Hockey Manager Franchise Edition – both for PC.
