About Us

BenchWarmers as a youth-focused digital sports news media brand that has been at the intersection of sports news and pop culture since 2011 – never afraid to stand up to (or poke fun at) the players, managers, teams, broadcasters and owners.

It is the ideal news organisation; transcending the dichotomy between offering important information and sensationalism stripped of responsibility; casting an Emerald Eye on the world of sports news; informing, influencing, reflecting and amplifying the views of its 6m+ community of sports fans.

BenchWarmers was acquired by the Irish Times in 2015 but re-established independence in 2020 with investment from Rocket Sports Internet.
