Who We Are

The AllStar was launched in 2021 by a group of passionate sports fans seeking to create one thing: A sports product that cuts through the noised pumped out by the thousands of pundits, commentators, analysts, influencers and “experts” on news sites and social media accounts all around the world.

Today, there are more previews, recaps, analysis, podcasts and betting predictions than you can shake a stick at. It’s mind boggling. Who should you listen to? Whose views really matter? With The AllStar, we try to answer those questions for you.

Our Mission

“We provide actionable expert insights on the world’s biggest sporting events.”

Our mission statement is simple. We strive to provide you with expert commentary from the most authoritative and respected individuals in their sports. These are athletes (current and former), officials, journalists – people who have followed their sports passionately for years and know what it takes to succeed at the highest levels because they’ve been there.

The goal is to provide actionable insights that you can use for your fantasy picks, your sports bets or simply to impress your buddies in the bar on game day. Point is, you get useful information that sets you apart from the average pundit. Information that elevates your understanding and passion for your sport.

100% Free

To be clear: We don’t provide the insights, our network of experts will. We don’t provide any analysis. Our experts will. And all this incredible content is available exclusively on this site and on our app for free, without advertising. Consider this our pledge and service to you, as fellow sports lovers.

So why go anywhere else? Cut through the noise with: The AllStar.
