The website primarily covers the Premier League, as well as other European leagues and cups. It takes an informal and humorous approach to dealing with the latest football news and often includes running jokes about individuals connected with the sport. F365 has been noted for the comprehensive coverage it provides, as well as its statistics and comment features.
The site was founded in 1997 by Arsenal fan and Internet pioneer David Tabizel, who then teamed up with journalist Danny Kelly, along with Dan Thompson (founder of computer game company Renegade Software) and Simon Morris, a former Marketing Director of BSkyB and ex-footballer & TV presenter Andy Gray, who also wrote a regular column. In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine in 2012, Tabizel stated that the website was named after a phrase oft used by his mother, Sandy, who would lambast him with "Its football 365 (days per year) with you!" In 1999, the height of the dot-com bubble, the sites' parent company 365 Corporation floated on the London Stock Exchange, peaking at a value of £500 million shortly after launch.

Presenters included Don Dealio, Ed Draper, Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper.
Founded in 1998 by Axel Dreyfus and Pierre Sivel under the name C Sport, and bought in 1999 by 365 Corp, then in 2001 by the Groupe Sporever group, Football365.fr is a site entirely dedicated to football news. Live news, match reports, interviews, live footage: the site has both a large number of videos, a blog service, and the option for readers to provide feedback.
The staff consists of six permanent journalists, helped by the staff of Sport365.fr. Nicolas Puiravau, editor in chief of the site since June 2004, has recently stated in Sport Strategy that the Football365 site gets more than 2 million unique visitors and 65 million page views per month.
