                            Software For Sport plc

                  Appointment of New Non-executive Directors

At the time Software For Sport plc ('Software4Sport') applied for admission to
AIM, it declared the intention of strengthening the Board with the appointment
of non-executive director(s), and establishing an audit committee and a
remuneration committee. The Directors also expressed their intention to comply
with the combined Code: Principles of Corporate Governance and Code of Best
Practice derived from the final report published by the committee on Corporate
Governance chaired by Sir Ronald Hampel and will be consistent with the
recommendations on Corporate Governance of the Quoted Companies Alliance in so
far as possible given the Company's size and the constitution of the Board.

 The Board of Directors of Software4Sport is now pleased to announce the
appointment of Richard Lawrence Hargreaves BA PhD (54) and David Andrew Lowe
FCA (46) as non-executive directors with effect from 25 October 2000.

 Richard Hargreaves has approximately 25 years' experience in the venture
capital industry and is a director of Elderstreet Downing VCT plc, Downing
Classic VCT plc, Downing Classic VCT 2 plc and Pennine Downing VCT plc,
amongst others. Prior to this, he was managing director of Baronsmead plc for
14 years. Richard has an indirect interest in 2,500,000 shares of
Software4Sport owned by Downing Classic VCT 2 plc.

David Lowe has worked closely with the Software4Sport group of companies for
over a year. He is managing director of Atril Limited, which provides
consultancy services to a range of companies, mostly as the representative of
investing institutions. David Lowe will take particular responsibility for
development and implementation of the acquisition strategy. David has an
indirect interest in 100,000 shares of Software4Sport owned by FB Limited.

The attached schedule lists the names of companies of which Richard Hargreaves
and David Lowe have been director at any time within the past 5 years. Neither
Richard nor David are or have been at any time within the past 5 years, a
partner of any partnership.

 The audit and remuneration committees will therefore comprise the following:
