“Yahoo Sports Canada is closing up shop. Thanks for following along over the years,” a post from the company’s Instagram account said alongside a photo of former Raptors star Kyle Lowry and the caption “We Out.”

Senior content producer Amit Mann broke the news late last week on the social-media site X.

“Yahoo Sports Canada’s run has come to an end,” Mann said in a post on X. “Yahoo Sports Canada was a place journalists and content producers could learn, grow and succeed. The industry is going to miss it.”

Other editors and writers shared their reactions on social media, with one saying news of the seemingly sudden shuttering “sucks so much.”

It wasn’t immediately clear when the Canadian site would be ceasing operations and details surrounding the decision to close up shop were not immediately available, although news on the app hasn’t updated since Friday.

“The fact that I’m even posting it from Scotiabank Arena during my final Leafs game for the foreseeable future is a testament to the amazing opportunities this place gave me,” Arun Srinivasan wrote on X. “This is almost certainly the coolest place I’ll ever work at and it’s because of all the talented, ambitious, funny, creative and passionate people who wanted to make their impact on the industry that is ruthlessly competitive to survive in.”

Yahoo Sports Canada was “a bit of a small, oddball, brand in a landscape dominated by a couple of giants,” writer Nick Ashbourne said on X, adding the organization encouraged creativity and valued employees’ health and well-being.

The Canadian website provided coverage on various topics across the sports landscape, including all of the major leagues in North America. The U.S.-based website, which includes popular fantasy sports offerings, was still up and running.

The outlet had a large social-media following with more than 50,000 followers on Instagram, 30,000 on YouTube and 18,000 on X.
