FoxSports.com provides sports news, scores, sports statistics, sports and entertainment video, sports fantasy leagues and fantasy information. Launched in July 2001, it is a unit of Fox Interactive Media, which also includes other 21st Century Fox online businesses.

FoxSports.com, along with competitors ESPN.com, Yahoo! Sports, CBSSports.com, and SI.com, is among the top sports sites on the web.[2]

Sports coverage[edit]

FoxSports.com features main editorial sections dedicated to coverage of major professional and college sports, including but not limited to the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, NASCAR, NCAA college football, NCAA college basketball, soccer, golf, tennis, and mixed martial arts. Additional sports covered on the site include boxing, IRL, Formula One, Champ Car, WNBA, horse racing, beach volleyball, rodeo, Rugby (UK) and Cricket (UK).

Content[edit]

FoxSports.com has many exclusive writers, including Jason Whitlock, Mark Kriegel, Ken Rosenthal, and Jay Glazer. A recent addition has been actor/comedian Jay Mohr, who contributes a weekly video clip and column.[3] Foxsoccer.com, Scout.com and Whatifsports provide additional content. The site was redesigned in April 2007.

MSN[edit]

In July 2004, FoxSports.com and Microsoft began execution of a multi-year agreement, which called for FoxSports.com to become the exclusive sports provider for Microsoft’s MSN.com portal, replacing ESPN.com.[4] As a result of the agreement, the site is often referred to as FoxSports.com on MSN.

On December 17, 2009, FoxSports.com was briefly replaced on the MSN main page by NBCSports.com during a cosmetic upgrade.
