We understand that sports are a lifestyle, because we’re part of it too. We strive to tell imaginative and engaging stories and enhance the experience with interactive polls and quizzes.
At TieBreaker.com, we know that sports are part of your life because we live it too. We’re bringing together sports + culture in a way you won’t see anywhere else.

What is your favorite athlete from the past doing today? How do sports and movies intertwine? What are the stars of lesser-known sports doing to make a name for themselves? We try to illuminate all corners of the sports experience and bring you stories that go deeper than the final score.
All our stories are composed with a nod toward humor and a pictorial display that enhances the reading experience. Sports are visual and we look to capture our favorite players in dynamic poses on- and 0ff the playing field.
