The site also includes sections on college football, college basketball and the Olympics. The sites attempt a comprehensive approach to sports data. For example, Baseball-Reference contains more than 100,000 box scores and Pro-Football-Reference contains data on every scoring play in the National Football League since 1941.
Sports Reference added a site for Olympic Games statistics and history in July 2008.
The company announced in December 2016 that the Olympics site will be shut down in the near future due to a change in its data licensing agreement. Since that time, data for the 2016 Summer Olympics was added, but the site has not been updated for the 2018 Winter Olympics. The providers of the Olympic data are working with another publisher to create a new website.
