Originally founded on 30th April 1859, Sporting Life established the UK's first multi-sports website on 20th December 1996 as a companion to the historic sporting newspaper.

Though the last printed edition of The Sporting Life rolled off the presses on May 12th 1998, the name, great content and core values of the newspaper very much live on in sportinglife.com.

The site has gone on to thrive in the last decade as a firm favourite for millions of sports fans around the world looking for accurate, immediate and impartial sporting information.

Drawing on more than 150 years of heritage, sportinglife.com offers unrivalled in-depth news, scores, betting previews, results and reviews across an impressive array of sport-specific channels including: Football, Horse Racing, Rugby Union, Rugby League, Golf, Cricket, Formula 1, Greyhounds, Boxing, Tennis, Snooker and US Sports.
