PreMatches down for maintenance

PreMatches was built and coded in 2004 and is one of the longest lasting stats & matchup sites on the web. It is currently undergoing massive upgrades and while the programmers are busy coding, I'm adding new leagues and features (+ watching the world cup).

It will be faster, better updated and a lot easier to use. Hang in there and wait for the new version shortly :)

If anyone of you would like to discuss the progress or anything else, hit me up on Facebook.

Thanks for your continued support!

ELO Ratings:

The rating was originally developed by Arpad Elo for rating chess players. The basic idea is that you should be rated by how you do versus the strength of your opponent. A poor team winning against a strong team will recieve a better rating than if the strong team won against a poor team. Each team start with 1500 in rating at the start of each season.
