It’s been ages since a dedicated sports torrent tracker was featured on this blog. To make up for this, we’re including 4 such specialized BitTorrent trackers in one article :) – Namely Footy Torrents, NHL Torrents, Hall of Fame Torrents and HD Sports Torrents. Between these four sites, you should be able to find and download almost any sports content ranging from Basketball, Baseball, Football (Soccer), American Football, Hockey, Wrestling, Boxing and even Racing. Most of the torrents point to files which are videos of either full matches or highlights packages. In addition, documentaries, DVD releases and sports related TV shows are also available. If you are wondering how to get into these sites, it’s done the old school way – signups are open and registration is free. Better yet, you get access to all four trackers once you register an account on the main BitTorrent site, NHLTorrents.
Note that all of these trackers are built on the same codebase (BtitTracker) and they more or less have the same set of usability features and visual layout. For example, all 4 sites have a ‘Cap Calendar’ which is used to organize recording and encoding of upcoming matches. The seed bonus system is also a common feature. However, note that the indexed torrents vary greatly between the sites – separate private BitTorrent trackers are used to manage the downloads and these trackers operate independent of each other.
- If you create an account on NHLTorrents, you can use the same credentials to log into other three trackers.
- The signup link for all sites will redirect to NHLTorrents (for the above reason). You will be shown a brief flash video which will outline site rules before you are actually taken to the signup page.
- Category based sorting of torrent index does not seem to work in some sites – it’s best to use the regular search feature as opposed to browsing by categories.
NHLTorrents is a well known private tracker for all things related to Hockey. It indexes match videos (both new and classic) and highlights packages related to tournaments such as NHL, AHL, KHL, DEL, etc as well as related documentaries and DVDs. NHLT seem to have their own cappers and encoders who make available sports content that are not found on other trackers or released by the scene.

Footy Torrents is a specialized Football torrent tracker. This site tracks video content related to popular Soccer tournaments such as English premier league, Champion’s league, League cup and a whole lot more. Again, there is a lot of unique content indexed here that’s not found on most generic sports trackers. If you are a football enthusiast, this is a must have BitTorrent tracker.

Hall Of Fame Torrents (HOFT)
Hall of Fame Torrents does not focus on a specific sport. Instead, it indexes content related to a number of different categories such as Baseball, Basketball, Fighting, American Football and Racing. Some of the popular events covered include NBA, NFL, NCAA, MLB, Wrestlemania, etc. Like all other sites in the NHLT network, HOFT has fairly good download speeds and decent activity.

HD Sports Torrents (HDST)
You can probably guess what this is from the name itself. HD Sports Torrents is a specialized sports tracker which focuses solely on high definition content. HDTV rips in x264 container and 720p sports videos are quite common on this tracker. One of the downsides is that HDST does not track any exclusive releases – all it does is indexing HD content found in either Footy Torrents, NHLTorrents or HOFT.

Note: Once you log onto any of one these trackers, all other sites in the network should easily be accessible from the small toolbar on the top.
