I have tried various football websites including the likes of heavyweights such as ESPN and BBC but my personal favourite and the one I use from day to day to keep me up to speed in the world of Football is Rivals.net. Most club websites are of course very biased towards their own club and ... Read review

Uniting The Rivals

AdvantagesAll teams hosted on one site.

DisadvantagesThe sites all look the same, too much advertising.

"Rivals.net is a collection of sport websites that cover most sports from cricket to football to rugby. The aim of Rivals.net is simple, to host websites that are run by individual fans of the individual teams. However this is the only time that word individual should be used when speaking about Rivals as when you have seen one team's website you have seen them all. Prior to the development of Rivals each of these sites were free to design and edit ..." Read review

RIVALS is the place to be

AdvantagesLinks everyone together, encourages good banter, easily accessible information and can create some good friendships between Rival Supporters and Sports fans alike

"RIVALS Sports network has been around for a year or so now as far as I can remember and covers a vast array of sports from F1 to Cricket, Football and many more...

Too much flame

AdvantagesWide range of sites, good photo galleries

DisadvantagesFan forums full of abuse

"I initially discovered rivals.net when looking for sites about Somerset County Cricket Club, and discovered "The Grockle's Obsession" - www.grockles.com, a Somerset fansite whihc was being hosted by rivals. There were photo galleries, chatrooms, news about the club, special features, and then messageboards. Whilst The Grockle's Obsession has remained fairly friendly and probably is about the most ontopic of all the sites on rivals.net, the same cannot ..." Read review

Great sports network

AdvantagesLinks up lots of great sites of all major sports

DisadvantagesThe sites are uniform as a result of the network system

"...an element of continuity throughout. Although rivals.net does cover all sorts of sports, I only ever really venture onto the football areas, so that's what I'll be writing about here - although I'm told that the other areas are similarly excellent. The football section of rivals.net has brought together the fansites of all the Premiership, Nationwide and Scottish teams aswell as a host of other, more general sites - right from a site on referees, ..."
