Rich history

AFC's rich history had to be present on the website. Thats why we have used the colours of the old website, which are based on the uniform the club uses: the red shirt and the black V. Thats how the physical club feeling is translated to a digital club feeling. This rich history does not only return on the website, but also on facebook and twitter.

Acessible information

One of the biggest challenges about the AFC webste was the large amount of data: all teams in the club, their match info, results, and the news archive. Al this info had to be made easily accessible, easy to readd and most importantly stay managable. We have done this by always keeping the navigation bar in the screen which contains impartant links to an overview page. similar pages or next news articles for example.

Guest games at AFC

By adding the responsiveness functionality to the website, we have added a lot of new possibilities. One of them is showing information for visitors that are on the road. That way, visiting clubs can find info extra quickly such as contact info or the field they will be playing on. The time untill next match is also always clearly displayed. This way, as a supporter, you always know if you can be in time to catch the kickoff.
