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. 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.
