Development Website Design
Following an exciting couple of seasons, from a promotion to a buy-out and new sponsorship, Stockport County are very much looking forward to the 20/21 season in the Motorama National League.
Our first partnership with the club was in 2017 when we built their first independent site not provided by the football league. Following a recent change in ownership, the club underwent a re-brand led by an evolved club badge, new kit partnership and lots of nostalgia, which naturally meant the website needed a refresh.Visit Website
Fast forward to 2020 and with a new owner and the club embarking on its next chapter at Edgeley Park, describing it as “an evolution, not a revolution” the website needed to be something the club and fans could be proud of. With their aim to build on the future whilst reserving the past, it was important for our team to refresh the club website to be in line with the look and feel of the new crest, whilst also maintaining the club’s historic colours. The site still needed to be easy to navigate, simple to update from an administrative perspective and ultimately deliver a smooth user experience for County fans.
We developed a bespoke design that incorporated the key deliverables to satisfy the requirements of a modern football fan. The main reasons fans visit the site is to access; fixtures, results, league tables and general club news, all of which were addressed in the 2017 design. The new website however has been simplified even further from a usability perspective on both the desktop and mobile site, which will provide an ease of use to those fans, sponsors and other supporters using it.
The new website was developed on a WordPress CMS so the content and images can be updated in-house as and when required. The site is now ‘future proof’ in terms of expansion and developments, allowing additional pages and functionality to be simply added.
Platform81 were fantastic from start to finish. They completely understood our requirements and delivered an updated website that perfectly complimented the new Club badge. A great partner to the Club as always
