We are CrowdScores
The CrowdScores Story
CrowdScores is a social scores network which allows fans to enter an immersive football experience where they can share both in-match events and opinion.
Born out of a frustration at a data monopoly which ignores numerous levels of the footballing pyramid and offers a slow service by modern technological standards, CrowdScores was formed in January 2012 with a vision to redress the balance of football data coverage.
Initially setting out to revolutionise how fans share football events, we soon realised that by crowdsourcing live football data it increased the speed and quality of the information. This led to the development of the CrowdScores app, a dedicated platform for fans to share in-match events so that we are faster, more comprehensive and more accurate than any established organisation.
CrowdScores’ first steps were made with a team of just two before expanding rapidly to reflect an improving system and ever growing user numbers. Now a team of 13 and with a user base of thousands, CrowdScores continues to break ground in the world of sports data.
What We Do
CrowdScores provides live football data via a unique method, crowdsourcing.
Our app empowers loyal fans, no matter which team they support, to share the latest events live from the match. Every report goes into our processors which employ complex algorithms to determine inaccurate or malicious reports. Within milliseconds our systems can determine the veracity of a report and update the score for everyone using the CrowdScores app.
Every fan who uses the app is a part of our social scores network. CrowdScores takes the concept of a traditional social network, utilising people’s natural desire to share events to produce a level of speed, coverage and accuracy which is impossible via any other means.
Where We Are
CrowdScores is based in Central London and we comprise of a team of football fans from across the World.
