To simplify the colour usage
A long time ago, Flashscore only covered 6 sports. Soccer has always been the most dominant, so many people still have Flashscore associated with the colour green. Other top sports - such as tennis, basketball, or hockey - have also been distinguishable by their respective colours.
Today, we cover nearly 40 sports, so it no longer makes sense to distinguish them by different colours - and we also ran out of them, to be honest. For this reason, sports are now being distinguished by noticeable icons.
To unite our app and website
The Flashscore website and the Flashscore app belong together. They always have. You know it well if you have an account with Flashscore - and, thus, you keep your favourite teams and matches in sync across all devices.
For us, it is also vital that the website and app belong together at a glance. Now, they finally do.
