The site’s public beta phase went live in November and full launch was on December 6th 2016. It’s exciting to see it already being recognised for excellence by the industry. The technical features of this project place NUFC ahead of every other sports club in terms of being a modern digital media publisher. We also think it's one of the best looking club websites (well, we would say that).
The Stadion team have exceptional knowledge of what supporters want from their club’s digital presence. Their highly adaptable football-specific platform and clear understanding of what would really appeal to our fans, has made working with them an incredibly rewarding experience.
Often when we work with football or sports clubs we find we have to recommend many improvements to their existing website, from better social network integration to responsive layouts and much more in-between; Stadion delivers almost all of these features out of the box, which frees-up resource to focus on more advanced features and customisation.
The new site has seen significant improvements in terms of traffic, with double the number of visitors than the previous site had in a like-for-like period.
The site is exceptionally fast. Average page load times are around 85 MS. Average publishing time is less.
