Sportsteam Widget – Football livescore


SportsTeam Widget is a widget that shows the next match of a game.
It uses a Custom Post Type for sportsteams, together with a Taxonomy/Term
for the class/level where the team plays.
You can add widget to every page anywhere you want and customize it for your needs for every sport – football (soccer), basketball, hockey, tennis, cricket and much more. Just add your team or teams and set up widget settings such as:
* Widget title
* Match date
* Subtitle
* Is match away (ticker)
* Class
* Home Team
* Home Team result
* Home Team color
* Out Team
* Out Team result
* Out Team color
* Background color
* Text color
* Show teams as links

But that’s not all! We’ve added a new feature – football livescore widget to add fully automated live scores and results for today from any tournament you want (or all of them at once). Just insert simple shortcode where you want on page and your users will get livescores with real time updates with no need to refresh the page.
Livescore widget is fully responsive for any screen sizes and has no ads.


This plugin is compatible with ClassicPress.
