Founded in 1997 by EMAP, it began as an independent website under the domain "scrum.com". It was later sold to Sportal in 1999. After its collapse in 2001, the site was set for closure but was saved by a consortium of rugby lovers who bought the site for £100,000 from Sportal and ran the site under the name "Scrum Ltd", paying for the site's maintenance from their own pocket for the next six years.
By April 2015, ESPN's Rugby section was run by ESPNscrum, but ESPNscrum was no longer its own website.
