The internet is filled with football websites competing with each other to provide you the latest news and updates surrounding the beautiful game. Among dozens of sites, Footybite is a unique website that stands apart from the rest primarily because of its dual functionality. It does much more than just providing information. Keep reading because you’ll learn a lot about this platform in this review.
What is Footybite?
Footybite is an ideal platform for football lovers looking to get match updates, previews, post-match reactions, transfer scoops, and other updates. Footybite defines itself as a leading platform that provides news, live scores, stats and other information on its website. However, what’s it’s most popularly known for is its streaming prowess. On the homepage, you might think that there’s nothing wrong with the website, however, it’s only when you enter the inner pages will you find streaming links to live matches.
Why should you stream on Footybite?
Footybite covers football leagues from around the world. It’s not restricted to EPL, La Liga or Serie A. You can find news, updates, and stats related to different leagues from around the globe. Thus, even if you want to watch MLS or K-League, chances are that you’ll find the fixture on the platform. There is the latest news, transfer scoops and other great pieces of information which builds a fan’s anticipation as the game draws closer.
Great website design
Footybite does a commendable job of providing news and insights to the audience. The developers have put a lot of effort into the design aspect. From the moment you step on to the website, you’ll realize that there’s an entire team working on the project. Everything from the banners two dual-scrolling menus help the website stand out from its competitors.
Live Twitter Access
Using the Twitter API, the developers have dedicated an entire section to embedded tweets. Since all the latest news and controversies start on Twitter, it’s wise to provide such a handy feature. You can view tweets from who’s who of the football world, including opinions, previews, interviews, transfer sagas and much more. An aspect I love about this section is that it’s independent and it doesn’t move with the menu on the left.
The real-time update allows fans to stay up-to-date with each and every fixture without missing a beat. Quite recently, I was watching Spurs Vs Chelsea and I missed Alonso’s goal early in the second half. When I opened my phone, I had two notifications – One was from Footybite and the other was from Google. The only difference was that Footybite’s update came a minute earlier than Google. Footybite essentially works in the same manner as leading football app – One Football. You get real-time updates, match highlights, scores, stats, previews and post-match content.
Quality Streaming Links
Honestly, I didn’t like it at first but as I kept streaming for a couple of days, I started to like the service. Once you get a hang of streams, it’s easier for you to find a stream that works. What’s even better is that each of the streams is in HD quality. You can use the calendar to check the games that are to be played on a particular day and when the time comes, you can stream using links provided by Footybite.
How to access Footybite?
Accessing Footybite is quite easy. You can search for the term ‘Footybite’ and you’ll probably find the website at the top of the search results. If you want to save the link or share it with someone, you can use the following link: Footybite.
I like the clean design on this website. Each element has breathing space and even after so much content, the website doesn’t feel cluttered. The blue and red combination flows well throughout the website. Other than that, useful plugins such as calendars, tags and twitter integration improve the user experience.
The header section looks clean with the blue background and white text. It has seven key options – Live Scores, Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Champions League, and MLS. Towards the right, you can find the red button with ‘Download the app’ callout.
The hero section on the website has a lot of elements primarily falling under two sections. Towards the left, you can find a calendar with the Live Now button. Under that, you can see Live Scores from various competitions across the world. Under that, you can see ongoing and upcoming fixtures in different leagues such as EPL, La Liga, Bundesliga and Serie A. Towards the right, you can find a search bar, under that, you can see meta tags which are followed by Twitter feed. Both the sections are independent and you have to scroll them individually.
There’s no Body section on the homepage, as the scrolling option has been integrated into two separate windows in the hero section itself.
Inner pages, as opposed to the homepage, follow a more news-based template. There’s a primary banner supported by small banners. For instance, Leicester City vs Manchester City is the biggest fixture this weekend thus occupying the bigger banner as opposed to fixtures such as Sheffield Utd vs Brighton or Southampton vs Aston Villa.
Footybite is a great website for viewers wanting to watch streaming on the go. Using the website or the mobile app, you can stay up-to-date with everything that’s happening in the major football leagues. You can follow competitions such as EPL, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and other cup competitions from around the world. There’s a huge catalog of games every week and you can even find games from leagues such as Brazil’s Serie A, Japan’s J-2 League and Colombia’s Primera A.
There are streams to each of the fixtures and by using those, you’ll be able to access any game you want. Footybite as a platform just helps you with the link, the quality of the stream depends upon your internet connection and your device. Having said that, the developers work towards providing you quality links that can help you stream football for free in the best quality possible.
I had a great time browsing and streaming on this platform. I used my HP 15 laptop and my Google Pixel 3a to access the website. Although I faced discrepancies when I first started, the experience got better as time passed. There are multiple links to every fixture and thus if you know about third-party streaming websites, finding a quality link won’t take much time. After four unsuccessful attempts, I was able to find a link that helped me watch the first half Chelsea vs Spurs game in HD quality.
I even downloaded the app and I was really happy with it. Though I didn’t stream any fixtures using the app, I browsed and navigated around the homepage and read certain news articles. All I can say is that the in-app experience is even better than the website if you want to read the content. As for watching content, just stick to the laptop or your desktop.
Suggestions I have for Footybite
Though I could’ve easily pointed out the issues regarding the ads in the inner pages, I applaud the efforts taken by the developers to keep the user experience intact. There will be banners popping up after every few minutes but they don’t lead to misclicks as those are legit full-blog ads that can be closed when you click on the cross mark.
If you’re a footy lover, I’m sure you’ve already heard about the name Footybite before. If not, you surely need to check out this website.
