  1. Sportal(adj)

    of or pertaining to sports; used in sports


  1. Sportal

    Sportal was one of the leading companies in the dotcom boom at the end of the 1990s. Founded by Rob Hersov, and backed by BSkyB and Silvio Berlusconi's Fininvest among others, the company, originally called Pangolin, voraciously acquired rights to host a plethora of official websites of Europe’s leading football clubs as well as lower-profile sites across a number of other sports. It also opened offices across Europe and in South Africa and Australia. In December 1999 it was valued at $170 million, and in the summer of 2000 it was named as the Sunday Times’s #1 web company at the same time it ran the website for Euro 2000, attracting record numbers of visitors. Negotiations were taking place with Vivendi Universal to sell the company for an estimated £275 million, but those coincided with the internet bubble bursting and the deal collapsed. The bloated staffing, number of offices and poor deals meant that money was being haemorrhaged and as the world woke up to the reality that the web was not a licence to print money, the cash fast ran out. By the end of 2000 the company were engaged in an endless round of fund raising and more people were laid off throughout 2001. In August it was bailed out by a £5 million investment from Bernard Arnault's Europatweb vehicle and the staff – down to 60 from more than 300 - were put on notice.
