Here's What 10 Of The World's Top Sports Websites Looked Like A Decade Ago

Nowadays, sports fans can access news, watch live games or find scores for their favorites teams in literally seconds, whether it's on their smartphones or on a computer. But as recently as a decade ago, things were much different - and different looking. Back then, there really were only a handful of top sports websites that were churning out content on a daily basis. As you'll notice below, many of them have come a long way in the design department.

Using the Wayback Machine, we took screenshots of what 10 of the most popular sports websites looked like a decade ago. In some cases, it hasn't even been that long since they were founded.
