The site was subjected to various types of analyses including a task analysis and a perceptual study of color. After identifying the purpose and users of the site, specific critiques were made concerning interface color, text layout and site consistency. Suggestions for improving the functionality of the site were then made regarding these critiques. The suggestions quote research detailed to CentreSoccer.com as well as general HCI research. Specifically the site could benefit from a reduction in color, increased spacing between lines and text, and removing inconsistencies within the interface. Implementing the suggestions made by this analysis will benefit users of CentreSoccer.com by making information on the site more clear, concise and understandable.
