Ad-Free Browsing Subscriptions

Are you visiting hundreds of our pages a week? Do you want the fastest possible experience on the Sports Reference sites?

Sports Reference Ad-Free will dramatically speed up your surfing experience on our sites. We'll remove the ads and other assorted widgets (like buttons, etc) at the source, so your pages will load as quickly as possible. Even when we serve you ads or widgets, we try to make each load as fast as we possibly can, but we all know that ads can be slow at times and unfortunately there is only so much Sports Reference can make our ad partners do to mitigate this.

Since we depend on ads to pay our bills, we can't do this for free, but for $20 a year you can browse the entire family of sites ad-free for a full year.

This will be better than using an ad blocker. Ad blockers use cpu resources, they still download some of the content they then block, and--we'll be frank--they keep money from us that could be used for investing in the site and compensating us for service we provide. Also, isn't paying us for our service better for your psyche than carrying around even the tiniest amount of guilt?

Faster load times, a cleaner look, and a nice warm feeling inside - what more could you want?

About launched (June 13th) with coverage for England (5 leagues), France (2 leagues), Germany (3 leagues), Italy (2 leagues), Spain (2 leagues), and United States (3 leagues). We have many more leagues, but are vetting them and will release them as they are prepared.

We have also added: Netherlands (July 16), Scotland (July 23), Portugal (July 30), Mexico (Oct 29), Belgium (Oct 29), Austria (Oct 29), Australia (Nov 5), Russia (Nov 5), Poland (Nov 12), Turkey (Nov 12), Denmark (Nov 28), Switzerland (Dec 4), Ukraine (Dec 17), Croatia (Dec 21), Greece (Jan 15) Bulgaria (Jan 29) Romania (Feb 18) Serbia (Mar 1) Czech Republic (Mar 1) Hungary (Mar 14)

Note that player records are likely not complete for their careers. Players may come from or move to leagues we don't currently cover. This issue will go down over time, as we add new leagues and seasons. Eventually, you'll be able to see Alexis Sanchez's stats in the Chilean Primera or maybe even Johan Cruyff's career stats. We will never in the future have less data than we do today. Because we are launching with a small set of countries, FBref will be ad-free for the entire year after its launch. The only payment we will ask for is that you let us know if you find an issue, so we can get better and better.

You can sign up to receive an e-mail when new countries and features launch.

For more information, see our Launch Blog Post, the overall leagues/competition page with details on leagues and seasons we include, or our About Page. Let us know if you find an issue or have a suggestion.

FBref is one of seven sites.
