transfermarkt is a German-based website that has footballing information, such as scores, results, transfer news, and fixtures. According to the IVW, it is in the top 25 most visited German websites, and one of the largest sport websites after kicker.de.
The website was founded in May 2000, by Matthias Seidel. In 2008, Axel Springer publishing house took over, gaining a 51% share in the website. However, Seidel kept 49% of the shares. The English-language version started in 2009.
The website has scores, results, transfer news, fixtures, and player values. Despite the player values, along with some other facts, being estimates, researchers from the Centre for Economic Performance have found that the 'rumours' of player transfers are largely accurate.
