If the site is updated
The resource is updated daily, but it has a rather boring design. But this can’t be considered a minus, since the variety of materials and useful collections makes you sit on the site and find a lot of useful things for yourself. On other resources, this can’t be found.
At the moment, Football.ua is cooperated with bookmakers Pari-Match, MarathonBet and ZirkaBet, which proposed a great bonus for registered users. Pari-Match offers 500 UAH for the first deposit, ZirkaBet promises a bonus of 3000 UAH for the first deposit. MarathonBet offers VIP-tour on home matches of «Manchester City» and «Girona».
If the user experience is good
Being fast and efficient helps users get what they want without waiting. Even the mobile version Football.ua site loads in just over a second, which is good because every extra second a user has to wait makes them more likely to leave. But Football.ua isn’t just fast loading though. It is efficient as well, simplicity of design and by understanding what information is most important to users. Their news line allows the user to find latest and fresh football information from all over the world.
If it is modern
In this way the site doesn’t looks modern. Football.ua is a very conservative regarding compliance with what is happening in the world. Apparently, the management relies on the principle – information is primarily important.
If it is social media friendly
Of course, Football.ua has Facebook, Twitter, Telegram pages, but they are not so active that it causes a great surprise. Again, we return to the fact that the site is positioning itself as a leading in the Ukrainian market and does not bother to attract users in other ways.
If banner positions are good
Many site users complain that there are too many ads on the site. It really is. The number of advertisers on this resource seems to exceed all acceptable standards. To find free space for an advertising banner – you need to try hard.
Final score (4,0) ♠♠♠♠
Football.ua is an amazing combination of resource popularity and trend mismatch. Having won first its own audience on the sports market of Ukraine, this site follows a conservative and outdated strategy.
