Welcome to Match-Text.com , the new and upcoming site dedicated to match-day reporting across the English Football League!
From the 2013/14 season onwards, Match-Text.com will feature in-depth and interactive written commentary across every team featured in the SkyBet Championship, aswell as the SkyBetLeague's One and Two. All teams will feature a dedicated reporter positioned at that club for the entire season. We're a Princes Trust backed project, both in terms of tutor support and financially aswell.
We hope to bring a new variety of commentary to fans that has previously not been attempted in such a way. We prefer a commentary to be a conversation, rather than a list of facts, times and pro-zone figures. Feel like asking how a new signing's coping or how the tactical set-up has altered a teams performance? Here you can, the comment may well be uploaded to the commentary itself and answered within minutes.
With 72 clubs covered, and 46 matches per year for each side, we hope that Match-Text.com can become the biggest and most appreciated text commentary site of its kind. We hope to be something new, built not just for fans, but with fans. Keep an eye out for our official launch.
Important Note: The site is currently in Alpha stage in regard to the layout, and will continue to change and improve throughout September and October. We're currently working through several of the layout and design changes right now, and will continue to do so while we work our way through the initial launch. For example, the officlla Match-Text.com logo is currently being confirmed in regard to copyright checks and so will be uploaded shortly after that has been confirmed. The sign up option, just for clarification, is actually related to an in-house forum being created for our reporters, there is no requirement to sign up or register with us to use our services.
The club pages are currently under construction and as such mostly hidden, but as a club is launched and a reporter confirmed, their pages will be opened up, at which point the content and layout will be online and active within 24 hours.
