All About

Welcome to, a website devoted to tracking statistics for football teams and players from around the world. FBref was created by Sports-Reference, the team behind popular stats websites like Baseball-Reference and Basketball-Reference. In addition to those, we've launched websites that cover American football, hockey, and college sports.

Global football represents a new, much more ambitious challenge for us. launched in June 2018 with league coverage for six nations: England, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, and the USA. However, we recognize that this only begins to scratch the surface of world football. In addition to the clubs we currently cover, there's a host of other nations with their own domestic leagues, not to mention international competitions like the World Cup. In addition to the league stats you see on the site today, there are national and continental cup competitions. And, in addition to the men's game, there's an entire universe of women's clubs.

Our long-term vision for the site includes all of that, as well as transfers, individual results, future fixtures, a suite of analytical tools, and much more, all while ensuring FBref is as fast and easy-to-use as the other sites in our network. In the short term, we're planning on adding domestic leagues from more countries on a regular basis throughout the summer. We're also planning on having daily updates once the club season begins in Europe.

We know that FBref is not yet a Baseball-Reference for football, but the only way to build that site is to start with this one. We're here for the long haul and we're going to put in the work and hours that it will take to make FBref the site you expect and want it to be. In the meantime, FBref will be presented completely without advertising, making it even faster and easier to use.
