North Star Network joyfully confirms the seven-figure acquisition of SportsMole.co.uk, marking its first major investment in 2024 and the newest addition to NSN’s sports media portfolio.

With a decade of online legacy and seven million monthly sessions, SportsMole now stands as a flagship asset among North Star Network’s 30+ global sports media sites.

North Star Network co-founder Julien Josset said:

I want to thank Alan Jay and Neil Wilkes for their trust. SportsMole is a well-known sports media brand in the UK and many other English-speaking countries. Our ambition is to take this brand to the next level, by refining the editorial product, migrating to a new platform, and diversifying the monetization sources to make it a sustainable asset for North Star.

Established in 2011, SportsMole is a sports news site offering up-to-the-minute updates and results across various sports, notably emphasizing football. Beyond catering to the UK audience, SportsMole boasts a readership spanning the Anglophone world, gaining substantial visibility in Africa and the United States.
