is the world’s leading source of independent news about the Olympic, Paralympic, Youth, Commonwealth Games, Universiade and major global sporting events.

Kick Digital was tasked with taking their existing website, built using the Joomla! content management system, and creating a bespoke content management system which met the operational and performance requirements of the business. This included a custom built email newsletter platform to handle their daily and weekly campaigns which are sent to over 21,000 subscribers.

A key element of the project was to ensure 100% availability of the website to avoid loss of traffic. This was achieved by migrating to a more reliable Cloud hosting provider and implementing a High Availability configuration of both the database and web application layers.
