Arsenal.com Scoops Host Of Awards

Mon 2nd Dec 2013 | IT & Technology

Arsenal Football Club’s website won ‘Best Sports Website’ and ‘Most Popular Sports Website’ at the 2013 Metrix UK Website of the Year awards making it a clean sweep in the sports category. 

The title of ‘Best Website of the Year’ was based on judges’ scoring across a number of key areas including content, navigation and design. The ‘Most Popular’ award was based on a public vote, with a total of 90,000 votes cast across Metrix UK’s 20 categories.

The double victory completes a successful year for the Arsenal Media Group which produces the Club’s content. Arsenal.com was also shortlisted for ‘Best Sports Website’ in the Europe-wide 2013 Lovie Awards. The Arsenal matchday programme was voted ‘Best Design’ for 2013 by Programme Monthly, one of the industry’s leading authorities.

Arsenal Media Group Managing Editor Richard Clarke said:  “We are delighted to have won the awards for ‘Best Sports Website’ and ‘Most Popular Sports Website’. We have a long and successful history in this particular event and it is great to keep that going after a year in which our website has changed so radically.

“It was also satisfying to make a mark in the Lovie Awards. These are notable ‘firsts’ for us. All that, coupled with recognition for our programme, demonstrates the strength of the Arsenal Media Group’s content across a multitude of platforms.”
