“Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated” - Mark Twain

It’s an incredibly exciting week for PreMatches. We are happy to announce that PreMatches is under new management and effective immediately the operations will resume as usual.

Since its inception, PreMatches has been focused on analysing tens of thousands of soccer games every year and little about this will change. We are still PreMatches; we still post soccer analysis. Moving forward, we will be bringing our technology, tools, and team to PreMatches. We are simply bringing more to the table: more to the community and, importantly, more fresh content and better analysis. In upcoming months you can expect to see lots of new content and refresh of the design.

We would like to thank our customers and partners for all of their support!
