About Spotrac

Spotrac has become the largest online sports team, & player contract resource on the internet. The system was founded by Michael Ginnitti & Scott Allen in 2007 as an internal tool to facilitate fantasy sports, and answer every day questions about player financials. Since then it's grown exponentially into a team payroll, player valuation, and overall research tool for a variety of audience groups with the sports business community.

The site currently boasts financial information for MLB, the NBA, NFL, NHL, and MLS. We're continually working to track down historical data for these leagues - in addition to adding new sports and leagues in the immediate future.
