Sports websites fall into a few different categories: sport news, clubs, sportswear and personal websites of famous athletes. Sports club and news websites mostly contain loads of information. That makes it really hard to design clean and simple looking layouts. For a sportswear website, the main task is to find a persuasive way of presenting the products. And personal websites need to be designed in a way so it reveals his/her abilities and personality. But the largest and most complicated task for all of these sites is – to express the motion, spirit and power of the sport. So let’s take a close look at this collection to get inspired and see how the design challenges have been addressed.

Sports-related websites do seem to have a very definite style- bold colours and huge photos. Great examples, thanks.
I love the site by Man C… great colours!
Love the Adidas example shows a good balance between colour and shape
The Nike Football site is a very good example of an effective and clean design, with brilliant and sharp imagery. The Manchester City website is also very well visually constructed.
