Sport Academy is changing
Around the Academy:

On Monday, we will be changing the Sport Academy website.

We want to tell you about it before it happens, and explain why we hope you will like the changes.

What will be different?

Well, the main change is that the site will no longer be blue.

We are changing to a cleaner, white look.

Below you can see a sneak preview of what to expect.

The new look Sport Academy
The new Academy page will look like this

Will I need to change my bookmark?

Eventually, yes.

For the time being, your computer should automatically redirect you to the new homepage.

Why is it changing?

We currently produce two main sport websites:

  •, where we publish all our sports news, scores and analysis.

  •, a separate site where we publish playing tips, video and information on how to get involved in grass roots sport.

    We want to bring both sites together to make it easier for people interested in sport to find information about how to play it.

    Does that mean the Academy is closing?

    No! It hopefully means many more people will have access to the huge stack of information we've built up since we launched the Sport Academy website in July 2002.

    We will continue to publish playing tips, training challenges, competitions, games and video masterclasses as we do now.

    We will also continue to add a whole host of new features.

    Coming very soon is our new Do-It-Yourself Squad Selector, which will allow you to manage your own sports team online.

    What about the message boards?

    The new Sport Academy will no longer have its own dedicated message boards.

    Instead we are recommending our users may like to try some of the sport message boards that already exist on the BBC's websites.

    If you are aged 14 or younger, you may like to discuss sport on the new CBBC Sport message board.

    Or if football is your game, you may like to try the football message board on the website of children's show Newsround.

    The new Sportsround TV show also has a message board.

    And so does the BBC's Teens website.

    It is important to us that you understand why we are making these changes, and that you like what we are doing.

    So if you have any questions or feedback, please email us.
