The Project

Podcast Portal for SPORT1

Goal: Flexible and intuitive platform for podcasts on various topics

SPORT1 has many different podcast formats in its program: From classic subjects, such as, football or ice hockey, to lifestyle topics. And many more formats are planned. What had been missing so far for the successful podcasts was a common home – which has now been created with

The challenge was to create a platform that could be used intuitively by users and that fits seamlessly into the corporate design of SPORT1. The demand for a perfect result was high because the user should hardly notice the change to the business page.

The Client

SPORT1 — Germany’s Leading 360° Sports Platform

The leading 360° sports platform in German-speaking countries stands for high-quality live sports, proven sports expertise, and well-founded, and entertaining reporting. The umbrella brand SPORT1 is embodied by Sport1 GmbH, a Constantin Medien AG company, which combines all free and pay-TV, online, mobile, audio, and social media activities. SPORT1 now also demonstrates the diversity of the sports landscape on its new podcast portal, which was implemented in cooperation with Syde.

Portal on WordPress Base with Host Integration
