Quality Athletic Websites

by Brady Nord

August 27, 2010 in Inspiration

There are not many aspects in life that can bridge gaps between religion, race, and nationality. Although, one that has proven time and time again is sport. There is not a city across the world that you can visit without seeing a team jersey or logo somewhere! Because of this, many sports clubs and teams have a unique challenge of designing their web presence to appeal to an international arena more so then the rest of us. I have assembled what I would consider out of the box and quality athletic based websites.

Whether you love or hate the brand or team, I hope you would agree that these companies are standing out in comparison to what the rest of the field is doing.

Manchester United Football Club

Manchester City Football Club

USA Soccer

Ping Golf

Callaway Golf

Spalding

Bauer

Mitre

Reebok

Nike

Ultimate Fighting Championship

    I was planning on doing a blog post on English football club websites but looks like you sort of beat to it.

    Nice collection but would it be better for a short reason as to why you think each of them are ‘quality’ along side their image?

    Nice collection but I agree with Ben, should have reasoning behind your choices, there are somethings I like and some I dislike about your collection and I would be interested to hear what or why you have chosen these web sites :-)

    The post should have been appropriately named as quality SPORTS website collection or something. Atheletic doesnt sound right for this collection.

    Like others, I’m not a Man City fan but their website is the best football club site I’ve seen.

    Featured in a .net mag article last year and it’s been well planned. Does everything a fan would need.

    Nice to see it get more credit.

    Some nice websites. My favourites are Nike – for their visual style and photography and Man City for sheer good design and usability.

    I agree with Ben though some descriptions on why these are favoured would be good.

    Not sure Man Utds should be on here though. Bit of a mess really with lots going on but no real thought on how you navigate.

    I like the golfing ones especially, they are very sleek. Even though I don’t like Man U, I’ve got to say their website is pretty cool.

    There are a nice selection of quality designed athletic websites above, the Nike design is simple, user friendly yet elegant and atmospheric.

    There’s some lovely websites featured here. They all give a feeling of adrenaline, which is what a sports site should aim to do. My favourite is the Rebok site. I like the way they have gone against the usual dark approach found in sports websites. The spinning boxes are a really nice touch too, it’s really energetic.

    Have a design of he paginates attractive web and professional is by himself the first step to manage to attract his customers’ attention. The second step is to manage his potential customers to find his page. At present, the searching engines are the first place to where the people in search of information about services or products in line attend; this means that, if his page is not shown in the results of the most popular searching engines (Google, Yahoo, Live MSN,) you will be losing an important source of potential customers then.

    Great samples. The Manchester United landing page is good but is not that great.

    It’s nice to once and for all find a web site where the blogger knows what they are talking about.
