Industry bosses have hailed the introduction of a new website design used by the vast majority of Football League Clubs as a resounding success. Factors such as illogical structuring, links that don’t work and the overall feeling that it must have been knocked up in a lunchtime by someone who hates football have forced fans across the country to do work instead, leading to increases in productivity in all UK business sectors.
Since 2001, various organisations have been managing the internet rights of the Football League and 79 participating Clubs, essentially forcing all official Football Club websites to look the same. The initial design by Premium TV was widely accepted and regularly used by fans across the country, despite having the speed of Andy Carroll.
But the new design contracted by Football League Interactive (FLi) and rolled out to Clubs recently is reportedly as hopeless as the beer-gutted forty-something Sunday morning pub team footballer who only gets in the side to make up the numbers if fewer than nine other players turn up. Fans who used to visit their Club’s website several times every day are having to go without their regular updates, resulting in an average increase in productivity in the workplace of 110 percent.
“We congratulate Football League Interactive on rolling out their new design,” exclaimed a CBI spokesman. “We discussed our requirements with them during an early stage in the design process and are over the moon with the result, it’s a dream come true,” he beamed.
It is understood that FLi are already working on a challenging third iteration of website design, this time in consultation with the partners of football fans. They have a mountain to climb though as the aim is apparently to make it so difficult to buy tickets for games that fans resort to accompanying their partners on weekend shopping trips instead.
