The most basic of all!!!! Use the colour theme of the official colours and make the colour appear in your work.(Usually the colours are superb to use)

2. Pictures

You will be getting some of the best pictures at your disposal, be sure to make use of them in as very artistic manner. You will have to make use of a large background image that goes with your sport.

3. Features

Always try to showcase the main features of the website(club) on the home page to make the navigation for the users efficient and effective.

4. News Section

Now a days the most basic area that a sport website showcases is the news with one image for one news. Show it as a slideshow or with some javascript effect.
Do not forget to showcase the official colours in your news section hover, it will make it look very “patriotic”!!!!!!
