Sport is popular, and sport news is a widely searched topic online. It is perhaps unsurprising then that there are so many sport orientated news and magazine websites on the internet.
I have listed below some sport magazine themes that I believe would help make a good website great – just add content.
1. Sports Gazette
Sports Gazette is a theme built specifically for sports news. As with all themes from Magazine3 this theme comes with an outstanding number of customization and advertising options. The theme is also completely responsive which as we all know is beginning to be exceptionally important. If you are looking for something with a slightly less newspaper feel then read on, the list has just started.
2. Sports Blog
Sports blog has been designed to have the feeling of the first theme on our list without the professional newspaper feel. The theme would be great for those blogging about sports in general or a specific team. Nice clean design which is easily readable – full advertising options as well as back-end controls are included.
3. Resportsive Magazine Theme
A fantastically clean and modern looking theme that boast a state of the art home page drag & drop module that allows the user to create unlimited home page layouts. Simply drag & drop the predetermined widgets to create the homepage you have been looking for. Theme is Adsense ready straight out of the box and is fully responsive for those viewing your sport headlines while on the move. Theme also has 20+ shortcodes that can be used to create beautiful posts.
4. Gameday Sports Theme
There are a number of great features available within this WordPress sports theme that are not available in any of the others, one such example is the optional scoreboard that allows you to enter and display the recent scores of whatever sport your website is dedicated to. The theme is also fully responsive, retina ready, and has numerous options for displaying advertising.
5. Sportimo General Sports Theme
Sportimo is a top rated general sports theme for those dedicated to delivering the latest news. The theme options an easy to use page builder, a choice of over 500 fonts, 30 shortcodes & a professionally coded events countdown timer.
6. Sports Mag
This is perhaps the first dedicated sports template that really proved to me what was possible. It has a sleek design and professional look. As with all magazine3 themes the back-end features and advertising options are second to none.
7. General Press
While the General Press theme has not been built specifically with sport in mind, the theme has been designed to suit most websites as a blank canvas. This theme is what premium themes are all about. Beautifully designed, with amazing dashboard options that will give your website the much needed head start and a professional look to boot.
I will be sure to update this post as better and better sports WordPress themes are released, but I am sure you will agree that the ones I have chosen are pretty good.
