How you can Help

Our primary support comes from users like you sponsoring pages at the site.

Where will the money go?

It will allow this site and the other sports-reference sites to continue to improve, and it will support the people who produce this site and the other sites.

I want to support pro-football-reference, but don't have any money to sponsor a page. What can I do?

  1. Send me an email and let me know that you appreciate

  2. Support our partner sites:,

  3. This one is going to sound incredi-corny, but bear with me while I embark on a brief tangent....

    I know this isn't breaking news or anything, but the internet is a terrific resource. In the five or so years I've been online, I've gotten information about all sorts of things that interest me: baseball, basketball, football, blackjack, card tricks, running, PERL, anagrams, Tulsa restaurants, planimeters, and groupoids just to name a few. Most of what I've learned hasn't come from commercial sites, but from individuals simply sharing what they know. I've taken so much from these people that I can't possibly repay them. What I can do, however, is contribute to the community and create a site that, hopefully, other people can get something out of.

    And that is exactly what you can do. If you find useful, and you want to repay me for the work I put into it, repay me by contributing your own time, information, or knowledge to create a site that other people can benefit from.
