At Football Express, we are dedicated to providing our readers with accurate, credible, and reliable football news. Our commitment to journalistic integrity requires thorough fact-checking procedures to ensure the accuracy of the information we publish. This fact-checking policy outlines the principles and practices we adhere to in verifying the authenticity of our content.

Multiple Source Verification: We cross-reference information from multiple credible sources to verify its accuracy and reliability.

Primary Sources: Whenever possible, we seek information from primary sources such as official statements, press releases, direct interviews, and authoritative records.

Transparency of Sources: We identify and attribute our sources of information, providing context about their credibility and relevance. When necessary, we protect the anonymity of sources while rigorously assessing their reliability.

Updated Reporting: When new information emerges that alters the context or understanding of a story, we update our articles accordingly, clearly indicating any revisions made.

5. Transparency with Readers

Source Attribution: We clearly attribute information to its sources, providing citations, links, or references where applicable, enabling readers to independently verify the information.

Disclosure of Unverified Information: When reporting on rumors, speculations, or unverified claims, we clearly label them as such and provide context about their reliability.
