End of Season Review
With Real Madrid confirmed as back-to-back Champions League winners, and the majority of European Leagues now over, it is the perfect time to give you a quick overview of what has been, by far, the biggest season yet for CrowdScores. Here are our highlights of the 2016-17 season:
We saw an immense growth in the CrowdScores community last season. After starting the season with 150,000 active users, we surpassed 1,000,000 active users in March 2017.
We’ve also seen more and more users getting actively involved, which resulted in a total of 1,541,289 comments on matches over the course of the season.
With the help of everyone we can keep on growing, so please keep on spreading the word!
Most popular match
Any guesses for which was the most popular match on CrowdScores this season?
It was the highly anticipated El Clásico on 23rd April. A huge 37,092 users predicted the outcome of the game, of which 38% were correct.
The end to end game, which finished with a dramatic last minute winner from Lionel Messi, inspired CrowdScores users who made a total of 9476 comments during the match, including 315 comments reacting to Messi’s final goal. This works out at a staggering 105 comments per minute during the game.
We’re covering more games than ever…
We covered a total of 49,944 games from 337 competitions. We also added a host of new competitions for you to follow including the AFC Champions League, Algerian Ligue 1 and the Indian’s Women League.
We will continue to improve our coverage next so CrowdScores users can follow more and more leagues from around the world.
