Sporticos Gives a New Dimention to Sports Contents

There are myriad football/soccer websites available on the web that have traditionally covered the sport for a long time now. This coverage generally consists of match previews, line ups, match coverage, match reports and ratings. They are a go-to hub for most football fans on the internet.

While most of these sites are generally good in conveying the information related to the most followed game on the planet, a new website, Sporticos.com, has decided to spice up the method of football coverage. Sporticos gives a detailed explanation of matches through the medium of infographics.

Infographics, the short form of “information graphics,” is a visual representation of information, data or knowledge. Infographics help to explain the information quickly and effectively in comparison to traditional mediums like podcasts or commentary. This is because infographics can improve the cognitive ability utilizing graphics to enhance the human brain to interpret patterns and trends faster than other sources of information.

The best thing about Sporticos is their variety. They offer visual information on 60 different leagues across the world. Sporticos presents visual information on the result history of the two teams playing, their key players, goals scored per match, league standings, goals conceded per match, the information about the stadium, predicted score, and match odds. They even provide information on the weather conditions of the match day and suggest the type of clothing you should wear if you’re planning to visit the stadium.

The staff of Sporticos also remains busy during the match. They update visual information on goal scorers, substitutions, and cards conceded. Sporticos also does a head-to-head comparison in the social media influence of the two playing teams.

The cool thing about Sporticos is that they allow the visitors to download these football infographics totally free of cost. You can upvote the infographics if you like it, and downvote if you don’t. You can suggest the corrections if you find something wrong with the data being presented.

If this new approach to sports journalism pleases football fanatics is yet to be known, but the omens certainly look good for Sporticos.

Sporticos is starting to get a lot of attention in social media and a loyal fanbase who want something different from sports sites. If they can keep this momentum going, they can attract a bigger audience who simply want to know about what’s going on in the sport, and not about a larger spectrum of politics surrounding the game.

There are already plenty of high domain authority sites related to sports niche on the market and as a startup, it is very difficult for Sporticos to stamp their authority, but if they stick true to their content, they can steadily build their own loyal audience, as they are a different breed in the crowd of sports journalism.
