Notes on online sources


In certain areas, notably featured article candidates, the suitability of sources is discussed. This section provides convenience links to such discussions about football sources.

  • footballgroundguide.com – Use with caution, preferably for uncontroversial information only (link)
  • RSSSF – Though it originally sprung from a newsgroup, RSSSF is a respected statistical source. For example it is the official keeper of records and statistics for the Danish Football Association.
