ESPNsoccernet

ESPNsoccernet provides comprehensive coverage of world football (soccer). Complete football information includes scores, statistics, and features of worldwide football.

History

In 1999, Buena Vista Internet Group (BVIG) acquired a controlling interest of 60 per cent in Soccernet from the Daily Mail and General Trust. It has since put additional features such as providing breaking news, match results, statistics and analysis for not only the leagues in England and Scotland but also for the rest of Europe, Latin America and other parts of the world. It is the world's most popular football site with more than 100 million page views per month.

ESPNsoccernet.com enjoyed record success in 2006, with more than 30 percent growth in unique users. During the 2006 FIFA World Cup, the site averaged more than 9.5 million page views per day, peaking with more than 14 million page views on June 22, a new record for daily traffic to the site.

The site has also launched versions of its site in French, Italian, German and Spanish, in addition to a new look for the English-language version of the site for 2007.

ESPN Soccernet Sportscenter is a daily show that wraps up action in the soccer world for the day. The show can be watched on Soccernet's video player in the top right corner of the site.
