    From our early days in cable sports television, theScore has been delivering authentic and innovative coverage to fans for more than two decades. A digital disruptor, in 2005 theScore launched its first sports media app, beginning the evolution into a technology driven, mobile-first company. 'theScore' app is now one of the most popular mobile sports media platforms in North America.

    Following the U.S. legalization of sports betting in 2018, we made the historic decision to become the first media company to launch a mobile sportsbook in North America. In September 2019 theScore Bet debuted, a best-in-class mobile sports betting platform that uniquely harnesses the power of media and betting through seamless integration with our flagship app.

    We also operate ‘theScore esports’ one of the world’s preeminent esports media properties, as well as distribute compelling digital content through our social platforms that reach hundreds of millions of fans.

    In October 2021, Penn Entertainment acquired theScore in a deal that brings together two industry leaders to create North America’s leading digital sports media, gaming and technology company. As part of the Penn Entertainment family, theScore is poised to continue its rapid growth across North America.

    theScore is headquartered in Toronto with roots in the city that date back to 1997.
