Sports fan portal Sportingo has raised a $3.2 million round from Ingenious Media of London. This is confirmed by Sportingo’s latest blog post.
The company started in Israel in August of ’06, with the goal of letting fans of a range of sports create a sport news community and write their own match reviews or opinions and get their articles professionally edited and enhanced by a team of experienced sport editors. The site mostly covers Soccer, Tennis, Cricket and Rugby.
Sportingo’s expansion began a couple of months ago with the aquisition of UK soccer blog CaughtOffside.
The company is led by Ze’ev Rozov and has recently opened an office in London in addition to the Herzliya office in Israel.
