Welcome to Noontime Sports, a Massachusetts sports blog that launched in May 2009.
Founded by Matt Noonan, Noontime Sports covers an array of amateur athletics to small colleges and high school sports teams, along with tech and innovation, both in New England and across the country.
Prior to focusing on both Massachusetts and New England sports in 2011 and 2012, our site produced a slew of op-ed pieces on numerous sporting news and events on professional sports. Our site still produces op-ed commentary, both on professional and other sports leagues – you can read more of these posts by visiting our commentary section.
In addition to producing daily, weekly, and month content, Noontime Sports has established a slew of partnerships over the years with different outlets and sites to organizations like the Worcester Area College Basketball Association (WACBA). Since the 2011-12 school year, we have hosted the weekly WACBA player and rookie of the week selections, along with end of year teams.
In 2018, our site established a partnership with Zelos Athletics to sponsor New England D-III football content, both through the site and social media channels. That same year is when we also assembled a small group of athletic communication professionals, coaches, and media members to makeup our New England D-III Top 10 polls for men and women’s basketball, and football.
In 2019, our site celebrated 10 years of blogging, and in October 2020, we announced future plans of launching our first-ever social sports experience with hopes of eventually hosting a charity tournament in 2021 (stay tuned for future news regarding the social sports experience!).
