About CrowdScores

CrowdScores is a live scores app which allows fans to enter an immersive football experience where they can share both in-match events and opinion. Born out of a frustration at a data monopoly which ignores numerous levels of the footballing pyramid and offers a slow service by modern technological standards, CrowdScores was formed in 2012 with a vision to redress the balance of football data coverage. Initially with a team of just two, CrowdScores expanded rapidly to reflect an improving system and ever growing user numbers. Now a team of 18 and providing coverage of over 150 competitions, CrowdScores continues to break ground in the world of sports data.
