Sports Marketplace Edition

Award-winning design in a real-world application

Unlike other all-in-one sports packages, Matchbin brings real-world knowledge, testing and know-how to the equation. The technology behind the Prep Sports Edition has been tested and proven to drive traffic and attract views. It has already helped one site, Prepcentralonline.com, win second place as an Online News Service in the 2009 New Frontier Awards and a third place in the Georgia Press Association as Best Overall News Web site. This is real-world technology already proven to deliver great results.

Power Ranking System

The new power ranking system allows readers to interact by choosing which teams are best. This isn't a simple poll, but a drag-and drop list allowing readers the chance to rank teams in order from best to worst and submit those rankings. This allows local sportswriters to pick their top 10 in sports, but also gives the community a fun, interactive way to pick theirs.

Player Pages

The new player pages become the go-to place for high school athletes, with detailed stats reporting letting them show off their skills and compare against other athletes.

Design

High school athletes and high school fans are looking for cool, eye-popping Web sites and the Prep Sports Edition offers just that. This isn't some rote cookie cutter site but one that screams youth and attracts views not only from the amazing content supplied by the writers but by the amazing design from Matchbin.

Team Pages

Each local high school has its own page, becoming a destination for all fans interested in seeing what's happening with all the sports for that team.

Statistics

There is no bigger forum for comparison and no better way to do it than by capturing individual and team statistics for sports throughout a season. The Prep Sports Edition offers one of the most cost-effective ways to input and track statistics for high school sports, players and teams throughout the season and year to year.

Video

What would happen if ESPN set up shop in your backyard, covering high school sports? The answer is the Prep Sports Edition which gives an easy way to post videos and even produce full-fledge shows. The site allows easy integration of video from standard definition 4:3 all the way to high definition 16:9. If you truly want to rule sports coverage in your area, tap into the video capabilities of the Matchbin Prep Sports Edition and prepare to wow. The wow factor is big enough that Gridiron Central, a twice weekly high school football show produced by the 18,500 circulation Rome News Tribune became the first newspaper product to be nominated for a Southeast Regional Emmy Award this year.
