Last Thursday (29th March) our lead front-end developer Dan Drave presented on our work with the NatWest 6 Nations live matchcentre to the WordPress community at the WordPress London Meetup.

Sotic developed and delivered a brand new, multi-lingual live matchcentre built on WordPress for the NatWest 6 Nations ahead of the start of the 2018 Championship in February.

This portal, which is available in English, French and Italian, integrates liveblog, digital asset management and live images, YouTube, and live stats from Opta. It’s quick and offers a smooth user journey on matchday with a fast time to publish while making life as easy as possible for content creators at a busy time. Crucially it’s robust and can cope with the huge traffic spikes that we experience during a Six Nations Rugby match weekend.
