About Hosted Pools

We've been running office pools for close to 20 years now. What is now Hosted Pools came about when we wanted to move our annual football and hockey pools online, and were unable to find the formats we used for our pools anywhere. We decided to create a site for our own football and hockey pools, which we used for several seasons, before realizing others may find what we had set up useful as well. Thus, Hosted Pools was born in the summer of 2009. We are currently on the 2nd version of the site, as we worked to streamline many of our processes and make the site more mobile-friendly in 2013.

We are a small company based in London, ON, and have a network of sites hosting football, hockey, and soccer pools for people from all over Canada and the United States. We pride ourselves on our prompt and courteous customer service, and doing everything we can to make your pool a positive experience for both pool managers and entrants alike. We're constantly tweaking and improving the site, as a result of user feedback to make it work for you - so if there's something you'd like to see added or changed, let us know.

Hosted Pools is for your entertainment only, and is not a gambling website. We do not run any pools for money, nor do we pay out prizes or handle any entrance fees for your office pools. We do however charge a fee to use our service, and you can use our Pricing Tool to see how much running a pool with us would cost you.

If you ever have a question, or a suggestion don't hesitate to send us a message.


The site is a great tool to manage the pool, I especially liked the drop down that you made to allow the buyer to pick which player they are supporting. It made it easy to track sales and payments. After the sales were done, there was no effort on our end to manage the picks and track the results and standings.
I will definitely use this site again if I am in a fundraising position next season. Thanks again for all your help!

That said, some pool managers are making other accommodations with their pools, and we're willing to work with them to do so. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out via the contact page.
  • Jan 2, 2023 - Tonight's Bills/Bengals game has been postponed by the NFL. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Damar Hamlin, along with his family and both teams on the field tonight. We will follow up with more information as the league makes it available.
