Advertisements! Yes, a lot of them. Muchodeporte is one of the best sites for reading about sports in Andalucia, but the sheer number of advertisements makes the experience slightly underwhelming.

The good thing is that there are no popups, which means that while browsing, you click on something, and a new popup opens up. This can be as irritating as anything, but luckily the advertisements are limited. It is just their positioning on the website that is troubling sometimes.
