5 Best Wordpress Plugins For Sports Websites

As a web developer or design consultant, you need to have a broad collection of Wordpress plugins that fit onto your client’s sites. Every plugin augments the power of the site you’re creating and offers visitors a uniquely interactive experience.

If you’ve been working on a sports-related website or an online fantasy sports platform, your best bet is to focus on plugins that can live stream play data and let visitors interact with different elements of the webpage. Here are the five best WP sports plugins:

1. SportsPress

SportsPress is the top choice for smaller teams and casual gamers when they want to create a web presence. If you work with your local football team or want to create a landing page for your client’s eSports tournament, this plugin is your best bet. It lets you create individual gamer profiles, set up game fixtures, integrate a live calendar for upcoming events, and adjust the league table on the fly.

2. Fixtures & Results

As the name suggests, this plugin offers two functions - the latest fixture and the latest results. Both are live streams that can enhance the utility of your client’s online gaming or fantasy sports website.

3. Soccer Info

There’s absolutely no doubt that soccer is the most popular game in the world. Billions of people watch it live in different regions, and it’s an incredibly lucrative market for digital entrepreneurs. If your client is part of the industry, this plugin offers a live feed of all the scores, ranks, and fixtures of over 550 international teams. Quickly integrating this plugin will open the floodgates for millions of football fans.

4. WP Club Manager

WP Club Manager is custom made to help you create a team-focused website. It’s got all the functionality you need to promote a club or a sports institution online. Neatly integrated with Wordpress, the widget helps your site owner manage individual teams, offer a live score, easily update the events of the season, and compile player ranking data over time.

5. RunPress

If your client operates a local marathon or fun run, this could be the ideal plugin for their site. The plugin integrates with the Runtastic app on iOS and Android (News - Alert) and can live stream run data on a simple map on the website. The site owner can use shortcodes to pull the data onto non-admin pages and keep offer visitors live data on each runner’s position, pace and duration (assuming they all use the same app).

It’s relatively easy getting live data on a variety of sports. However, there’s a shortage of high-quality sports plugins you can use on your client’s site. All the plugins mentioned here can be quickly integrated onto any simple WP site, which could help your client attract more visitors.
