Content with integrity

At Sportskeeda, we have a carefully curated set of editorial guidelines that ensure we produce accurate and unbiased content at all times. Our editorial team works with our journalists and researchers in a system where there are defined layers of checks and balances at every stage. This ensures that all information passes through multiple sets of eyes, and that readers get the best of the sports and entertainment world in an unbiased and unadulterated form.

Sportskeeda’s journalists are the life-blood of the organization

Sportskeeda has experienced journalists spread across the globe who bring forth accurate and timely stories about the sports, games and events that matter. Our journalists work closely with the editorial team at all times. Every single story angle, headline and source is approved by the editorial team, and the final output is carefully reviewed before being published on the website.

Our Editorial Process

All content at Sportskeeda is created through a fixed chain of operations, with editorial supervision being a prominent feature of the entire process.
The journalist ascertains the authenticity of a news story before pitching it to the editorial team for approval.
An editor does a thorough fact-check and clean-up and publishes the story if it meets Sportskeeda’s editorial standards.
In case changes are required in the story, the editor sends it back to the journalist. The revised story is then reviewed by a second editor before publishing.
A team of senior editors, called the Content Improvement Team, conducts regular audits across all sections to iron out any errors and improve the overall quality of content.
All user feedback about Sportskeeda’s content is taken very seriously, and acted upon promptly. Users can give their feedback on specific articles or on this email address: [email protected]

A Message From our Managing Editor

What does news need to be? It needs to be quick, it needs to be reliable, it needs to be accurate, and it needs to be easily accessible. And we at Sportskeeda do everything in our power to ensure that all of our content fulfills those 4 requirements to the letter. Our foremost objective is to disseminate information in its purest as well as its most engaging form. We give our readers all the sports content they are looking for, whether it is a technical dissemination of a player’s on-field performance or any kind of relevant off-field news. Sportskeeda has a vast array of reputed journalists who bring forth breaking news as well as hard-hitting interviews on a daily basis. They always have their foot on the pedal, whether it is in covering blockbuster sporting contests, giving real-time updates on delicate sporting controversies, or uncovering the truth of underprivileged athletic talents. Nothing escapes our team of experienced and industrious reporters, who do everything in their power to educate and entertain their audience on all things sports. We are meticulous about our news sources, and we strive to give our readers the truth and nothing but the truth. Our journalists are bloodhounds when it comes to digging up interesting stories and also sticklers for credibility; we firmly believe there can be no compromise on accuracy. We also take pains to ensure that our content is free of any kind of prejudice, whether it is political, racial, sexual or religious. Of course, one of our mission statements at the start of our journey was to report on the lesser known aspects of the sporting world, and we remain committed to that too. Bringing to light the untold stories of struggling young athletes is always one of the focus areas for our journalists, and the fact that we have diversified into different streams and types of content will not change that.
