New website launched for Aberdeen Football Club

Client Login New website launched for Aberdeen Football Club Sotic has unveiled a brand new website for Scottish Premiership side, Aberdeen FC We have been partnering The Dons on digital since 2014 and the new site, which is our second for the club, was a ground-up redesign and build on Sotic’s super-charged version of the WordPress CMS. www.afc.co.uk With over 50% of traffic to the AFC website coming via mobile device we designed mobile-first, and the responsive design produces a fast site with a sleek and modern look and feel and an easy user journey. The site was six months in the making, from the early research phase to launch, and cements AFC’s position at the top of the league in terms of digital offering. Here’s a few of the highlights. Design The design is clean and simple, visually appealing and polished while remaining true to AFC’s brand identity. We used an agile methodology for the wireframes so that the user experience on different screen sizes is optimised and both text and visual content have been carefully balanced to improve user experience and readability. Speed Responsive images on the site mean more efficient loading, optimised to screen width and device. We load only the necessary technical resources required to render a particular page using conditional front-end asset loading (CSS & Javascript files) as well as lazy loading for a variety of features that are below the fold. Matchcentre & Statistics The matchcentre for each game is a vital hub for supporters with the match overview, preview, report, related news and media, team formation and statistics all just a click...
