Designed and programmed by PremiumTV, the new web site is a stark improvement in design compared to the previous site which looked quite outdated. The colors red, white and blue are pretty dominant throughout the site.
New features worth mentioning are the ‘tickets’ section, which allows fans to easily locate and purchase tickets online. Previously fans had to hunt through the different club web sites and Ticketmaster for details. There’s also a video section from the homepage which could be promising depending on how often it’s updated and what the content is.
There seems to be a few glitches on the web site, so it could be that PremiumTV is testing those as the site just launched in the past 12 hours. PremiumTV launched the Chelsea website late last year (hear an interview with PremiumTV here from the EPL Talk Podcast). PremiumTV also is in charge of most of the Premier League and Football League websites. An interview with Phil Lines from the Premier League where he discusses the new website can be heard here.
Eerily, the new Premier League website looks very similar to the redesigned version of the SkySports website which was just launched yesterday. Take a look and compare.
Nevertheless, the Premier League has given us a site that’s worthy of visiting — as opposed to the previous version which was pretty horrid except for the Fantasy Premier League section.
