EPCR launch new website

New season, new site for European Professional Club Rugby

This weekend all eyes turn to European rugby action which will be back with a bang when the first round skirmishes in the Heineken Champions Cup and the Challenge Cup kick off on Friday evening.

There are no less than 20 live matches this weekend and the action gets underway this evening with #TeamSotic’s Leinster Rugby (v Wasps) and Sales Sharks (v Perpignan) in action.

Sotic have been working with tournament organisers European Professional Club Rugby since 2009 and earlier this year launched a brand new digital home for their prestigious competitions on our Sotic Sports WordPress Theme.

Mobile First and multi-lingual

The fully responsive and redesigned site, which was built mobile-first, gives the team at EPCR complete control over their content, how and where it is displayed. The design is sleek and clean, while remaining true to EPCR’s brand identity and is available in English and French.

Liveblogging and Stats

The matchcentre is a vital hub for supporters with match overview, preview, report, related news and media, team formation and both historical and live statistics all just a click away and fans can follow all the action across multiple games, as it happens on the liveblog.
