9 Ways to Improve Your Sports Team Website Design (part 3)

  1. Make your Website Mobile Friendly 

Nowadays, surfing from mobile devices has surpassed that of desktop computers. Therefore, your sports team website should be designed to look great on any screen. Moreover, search engines like Google or Bing now factor mobile-friendliness into their search rankings. If your site isn’t at the top of search engines’ results when users search for your team name, it is just embarrassing. As a result, making your site mobile compatible is a must.

There are some different ways, for example, using special mobile themes and plugins, to achieve this. However, the best solution is to make your main theme responsive,  meaning that your website has a fluid design which can automatically adapt to the size of the screen it is being viewed on.

For that, you will need the help of a seasoned developer, or you can also opt for a sports team website template which is responsive out of the box.

  1. Use Professional Photos

There is a sayings that “A picture says more than a thousand words”. When it comes to web design, the quality of images on your site really communicates a lot to the outside world. And sports team website design is no exception.

In the present, visitors can sniff out generic stock photos easily. If you also use those, you will come off as generic. That is not good for you and your sports  team when trying to get more fans.

Selfies also don’t help this. What you need to do is to make your site look professional and attractive. In addition, your team’s fans like to see real pictures of their stars and the people they cheer for. Don’t deprive them of that!

Therefore, don’t skimp on photos. Someone who knows what they are really doing will greatly help improve your website.
