Sky to relaunch Score Centre app for new football season

The hugely popular Sky Sports Score Centre app is set for a refresh, with the broadcaster relaunching its score tracking service for the new football season.

A match day essential for many football fans, the new look Sky Sports Score Centre will pair a sleeker design with faster updates and a bevy of new features – including the ability to receive notifications for up to four teams of your choice, up from one.

“We are going to relaunch Score Centre,” David Gibbs, Sky’s Director of Digital Media said addressing TrustedReviews this morning.

He added: “Score Centre is our most popular mobile application. It hits around 5 million unique users per month and is one of the most popular apps in the UK, so it is important that we get this right.

Set to land as part of a broader refresh of the company’s sports coverage, the revised Score Centre app will join Sky Sports 5 and the new Sky Sports News HQ channels in ensuring all our sports monitoring desires are fulfilled.

Looking at how the new Score Centre app will be improved, Gibbs stated: “On Saturday afternoon we will have up to one and a half million people concurrently using this application.

“We have sat down and we have listened to what our users want. A couple of things are that they want it to be faster, they want their scores to be able to get to them quicker. They want to be able to follow more than one team, they want a better UI and they want more video.”

Having addressed all of these points with the upcoming refresh – as well as adding further features such as betting integration – he added: “We hope this will go down very well.”

Sadly, the refreshed app will not be available in time for this weekend’s start to the football season. The broadcaster has told us that the new look Score Centre “will be launching probably at the end of August.”
