For the 2006 UK sports newspaper, see The Sportsman (2006 newspaper).

The first British newspaper titled The Sportsman began publishing from 1865, some six years after the Sporting Life. It ran until 1924.

It was at the offices of The Sportsman on 20 July 1871 that the Football Association committee meeting was held which adopted a proposal to establish a knockout competition for the FA's member clubs – the FA Cup.
