Goal is the largest football website in the world, with 32 country editions and over 530 reporters in 50+ countries (ComScore). Goal provides users with news, live scores, match previews, and editorials. In February 2011, Perform Group, headed by Oli Slipper and Simon Denyer, acquired Goal for $30m.
Goal provides live commentary, reports, reactions, and player ratings for the majority of the top domestic European leagues, as well as the UEFA Champions League, Europa League, and several other international competitions.
In September 2009, Goal launched Goal UK specialising in news from English football exclusively. In November 2010, Goal began a partnership with the Bundesliga to look closer at football in Germany and the business model behind a majority of its clubs. The UK edition is currently run by Chief Editor Sam Lyon.
