ENHANCING live action

NRL Web Development
The Problem

The NRL.com Match Centre is the online home for every game of the Telstra Premiership, State of Origin and International series.  In 2014 Loud&Clear's joint venture FanHub was tasked with reinventing the Match Centre to showcase Telstra's live video streaming rights and real-time score updates.  

FanHub was born out of Loud&Clear's love of technology and sports, and building the official NRL Match Centre allowed us to bring the two together in a compelling way.

Our Approach

Supported by Loud & Clear, the FanHub team began work during the off-season on a responsive design that looks great on hi-res monitors and tablets. To design and build the perfect companion for rugby league fans, the NRL Match Centre needed to integrate time-based technology to perform in and out of sync with the live game.

Using AngularJS for lightning fast real-time updates, our focus was integrating the official live score feeds for match scores, player data and more.  The application is integrated with Telstra’s Digital NRL pass product, creating a seamless flow between subscription types.

We developed an engaging second screen experience which allows users to pop out the video to simply focus on the play. Our favourite feature? A visual timeline which allowed users to scroll through the game post-match to view key scoring moments and highlights.

The NRL Match Centres allows fans to stay up-to-date if they can’t watch the games and get even more out of the games as they watch them live.
