Goalwire is the world’s leading livescore site with scores, statistics and league tables from over 50 coutries, in 12 different sports.
The sports coverage extends from Basketball and Football (Soccer) to Handball, Tennis, Ice Hockey, plus a few more, and their site is available in over 10 languages (including English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish, and Estonian).
Their homepage displays current results, with a list of all matches for the day, as well as a tab which gives you the option to display only the matches being played at the moment, or the matches played later that week.
You can also select to display Statistics and Tables by Sport and League, in a very convenient drop-down menu that is extremely fast to load. And get this: statistics are not limited to the top league of each country, but also lower divisions (from the English Conference through to the Italian Serie C2, all the way to the Swedish 3rd Division Södra Götaland, whatever that is 🙂 ).
There is also a feature which displays Live Alpine Skiing, for those who fancy sliding down snowy slopes.
One of Goalwire’s neatest features, is that by clicking on the link of a match of the day, a pop-up window will appear (see thumbnail on the right), displaying:
- Head to head record for those two teams in past seasons (extending even 2-3 years into earlier season).
- The last 5 matches of each team in the current season.
- The current league table the two teams are competing in.
There is also the option of receiving live score updates directly on your mobile phone through wap.goalwire.com.
An improvement Goalwire could make, is a feature which would remember your favorite sports/league every time you visit the site. As of now, the site displays Basketball scores before Football scores, and you have to scroll down the page if football is what interests you.
