The Alchemists – Sports Club and News WordPress Theme

Welcome to the ultimate sports WordPress theme for your Basketball, Soccer, American football sports or eSports club and news site. Built with the legendary SportsPress plugin, The Alchemists is perfect for player, team, club or league sites, or for sports magazine and news pages.

Complete Sports Theme with SportsPress

Built with the top SportsPress Wordpress sports management plugin, The Alchemists is a comprehensive sports team, player, club, league or magazine WordPress theme. SportsPress includes a full suite of tools for you to create and customize your dream sports site, so the sky really is the limit!

Designed with you in mind, The Alchemists gives you everything you need for the ultimate sports site, including fixtures, results, league tables, player profiles, stats and rankings, club profiles, events calendar, match overviews, detailed match reviews, venue information and maps, news and updates, next match countdown, sports presets, a merchandise store, and loads more!

Complete Team Pages – We have designed team pages with rosters, overviews, galleries, standings, tickets, schedules, latest results and full statistics.

Team Roster Versions – The theme includes several different versions of the roster pages, ranging from a simple list to a dynamic player slider and player info card, so you can decide how you want to show off your team.

Full Statistics & Charts – Choose from a full range of statistics and game charts to keep track of how your team is doing, including latest game results, team leaders, team stats, lineup and tactics chart, timelines, logs, top goalscorers, awards, games history, and much more!

Full Player Profile Pages – We have designed multiple versions of the profile pages so that fans can scroll through their favorite players and get the inside info. Key information is displayed at the top, and users can then navigate through their statistics, biography, and more, via simple tabs.

Number Statistics & Averages – The theme offers full number statistics and logs (for both the team and individual players) that show scores, minutes played, assists, fouls, and much more.

Easy to Use & Highly Customizable

The Alchemists is user-friendly and intuitive, with tons of customization options, so you can arrange and design your site just the way you like it.

With one-click demo install, you can import all elements, widgets, pages, icons, and everything you need to get started, in a single click! We have also included the premium WPBakery Page Builder (formerly Visual Composer) plugin, so that customization is super quick and easy. With the real-time editor, you can see your changes as you go and make sure that your ultimate sports site is shaping up perfectly.

This complete suite for sports sites comes with 40+ custom blocks and elements, including various post styles and widgets, lots of different infographics, charts, statistics, and even a countdown to the next match.

The flexible Bootstrap grid layout uses 3 main columns, making it easy to re-arrange elements and widgets on your pages, and to change or replace blocks (such as standings, news and latest results). We have also created a huge number of variations of post pages, info blocks, game results and more, so you can choose the style that works for you.

With unlimited colors, Simple Line Icons, FontAwesome, and 870+ Google Fonts, you have thousands of options for branding your sports site according to your team or league and finding a unique look.

Best of all, with The Alchemists you can be sure that your dream sports site is fully optimized, fully responsive and retina ready, so players, fans and followers can check in on their team from any device.

Sport Specific Versions

We have even developed dedicated versions of The Alchemists for specific sports, including soccer, basketball and American football. Each version includes custom SVG vector icons, with its own elements, widgets, features, icons and color palettes, so it’s even easier to create the sports site of your dreams!

For example, the basketball version includes a team leader widget, showing points, assists, steals and rebounds, whereas the soccer version has a top goalscorer league table. We’re always working on more, so that you can get the best out of The Alchemists, so check back for the latest updates to see what’s coming!

WooCommerce Ready

Transform your sports news site into a complete sports hub, including a fully functioning online store. With WooCommerce integration, fans and followers can snap up the latest kit, branded merch, tickets and special offers and show their loyalty!

WooCommerce is the most user-friendly and customizable eCommerce platform, allowing you to build your online store in no time, design every element of how it looks and how it works with simple tools, and make it unique to your team, league or sport.
