A website that offers a wide range of sports and top-notch writers. Launched in 1997, last year it celebrated its 20th anniversary. When you first open the page, you can see that it has tons of articles, results, videos about some of the most famous sports in the world. Starting with the big American 4 of, NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL, then continuing with NCAAF, NCAAB. You may think it only focuses on Northern American sports, but it also offers some great insight into soccer as well, MMA and Tennis.
The website, in general, is eye-pleasing and when you hover around for example through the NBA or NFL tabs, it’s definitely a lot easier to get the information that you want. If you compare the NBA section with the official NBA website, I would have to say that it is a lot better and the writers offer information that is both analytical and qualitative while also relevant. What I like most about this website is that you can’t get bored while on this website.
Yahoo sports is known for its incredible dedication to fantasy sports, be that football, basketball, baseball or even hockey. If you’re a fantasy fan, then this is one of the best places that you will want to spend your time on. It’s interesting to see that fantasy sports are lined up before real sports in their website, that shows that they are quite interested in their fantasy sports fanbase. The moment you click on the fantasy tab, you will be met with a barrage of articles, reports, and analysis.
Another cool feature is that you can actually buy tickets and gear of your favorite team. When you click on the Tickets tab, it will directly lead you to seatgeek.com. I love the fact that they do everything to keep you there without wanting to leave the website in order to look for information somewhere else. For those of you that like betting, it also offers the odds tab where you can see in detail the odds of each game.
In closing, Yahoo Sports is one of the better sports website around. It offers great articles, around the clock updated sports news, and a dedicated fantasy sports section. A great website for any sports fan!
