Playerhistory.com is an internet soccer statistics database, founded in April 2002 by former (1996/97) Waterford United F.C. footballer Håkon André Winther (born 15 September 1969 in Tromsø).[1]

Maintained by a team of volunteers from all over the world, it is one of the largest websites of its kind.[2] As of August 2009, when Football DataCo threatened legal action in a dispute over fixtures, the site contained more than 242,000 player profiles, 34,000 club details and more than 1,200,000 match results.[2]

Playerhistory.com's material has been reproduced in media sources including Aftenposten[3] and Bladet Tromsø.[4]
