Current statusActive

HistoryEdit

This enterprise, according to its founders, was created in January 1994[2] by three regulars of the Rec.Sport.Soccer (RSS) Usenet newsgroup: Lars Aarhus, Kent Hedlundh, and Karel Stokkermans. It was originally known as the "North European Rec.Sport.Soccer Statistics Foundation", but the geographical reference was dropped as its membership from other regions grew.

Today[when?] the RSSSF has members and contributors from all around the world, and has spawned seven spin-off projects to more closely follow the leagues of that project's home country. The spin-off projects are dedicated to Albania, Brazil, Denmark, Norway, Poland (90minut.pl), Romania, Uruguay, Venezuela, and Egypt.

This enterprise was for many years closely tied with the newsgroup RSS, and it still maintains an archive (last updated 15 June 2003) of what some of its contributors consider to be the best posts of RSS.

ReceptionEdit

RSSSF's database has been described as the "very best" for football data.[2][3]

Spin-off projectsEdit

90minut.pl (Poland)Edit

The 90minut.pl is a Polish internet football portal, operating since 1 January 2003. The initiators of the creation of the website were Paweł Mogielnicki and Maciej Kusina, and other people associated with the website mogiel.net, which was established at the beginning of 1996.[4][5]

The site is an archive and database of teams, footballers, referees and Polish football competitions (from the Klasa C to the Ekstraklasa), as well as international and national teams. Contains the current results. It also offers a wide range of goalscorers in matches, but it differs from the official statistics kept by Ekstraklasa (e.g. in the match on 4 February 2022 Zagłębie Lubin v. Legia Warsaw, the portal recognizes Kacper Skibicki as the goal scorer at 0–2,[6] although officially it was an own goal by Bartosz Kopacz).[7]

Rec.Sport.Soccer Player of the YearEdit

Since 1992 a vote for the Best Footballer in the World among the readers of the rec.sport.soccer newsgroup. It was held yearly until 2005, but for some reason the award was discontinued. The voting works as follows: each voter choses 5 players, at most 2 of the same nationality, in order; these obtain 5 to 1 points. The nationality restriction was dropped for the 2003 vote, in which voting was restricted to 173 pre-selected players.[8]
