Google OneBox for Premier League (and Other Sports Results)

Football* fans from the UK should rejoice: Google added an OneBox that shows scores and upcoming matches when you search for the name of a team (Arsenal, Manchester United etc). Apparently, Google shows the OneBox only for the US and the UK sites.

EPL Talk wonders if Google pays a fee to display this information, but I wouldn't worry about that. "By law, publishers must pay a license fee to the Football DataCo Limited company that in turns shares the money with the clubs in the Premier League and Football League."


It's interesting to notice that Google SMS and Google's mobile search engine show scores and schedules from NBA, NHL, MLB, NFL, NCAA and from many football championships: Primera Divisi├│n, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1 etc.


* Note for the American readers: you may replace "football" with "soccer" in this post.

  2. It would also be great in the future to add information of when your Team is on the Television or big screen, a mini schedule if you like.

    Cheers,

  5. If Google pays a fee to display this information we don't have any problem. They are gaining the visitor to his site.

  9. Soccer is the best in planet earth. I do respect any sport and people who practice other disciplines, however, soccer is the best.
