Oddschecker Global Media (“Oddschecker”), the leading odds comparison and consumer gaming media group, today announced that it has agreed to acquire the trade and assets of WhoScored.com (“WhoScored”), a leading online destination for football live scores, statistics and proprietary player ratings for an undisclosed sum.

WhoScored.com is a well-established site with a fantastic product and brand which draws a strong audience in our key target territories.

We share the same passion of serving football fans around the world with outstanding content.
