Back in 2007, Wes Lewis & Matt Waring worked in a Web development department of a recruiment agency in Manchester - during one of their many tea breaks, they nattered about the evening's midweek Football on TV being played and who was playing in the Champions League that night, and on which channel (back in the days when Setanta Sports came to the UK).
After that chat, they realised that it required multiple Google searches and a scan of each broadcaster TV guides to get this information - the upshot is that it wasted valuable time and was missing an easy solution!
That solution was the amazingly brilliant (and simple) idea of a website that showed all of the aggregated, upcoming Live Sport on TV, kick-off times, TV Channels and Teams - and voila, WherestheMatch.com was born!
15 years on (yes, it's been a while now), WherestheMatch.com has evolved into a hugely popular, daily source for sports fans checking when live football is on TV and now boasts over 20 million users each year across 35 sports on our Website, Android and iOS Apps. In 2022, we continue to grow without moving away from our mission to make sure TV sports fans never miss another match!
