Display Language

SportFlash has been designed for four languages (German, French, Italian, and English). The display language normally corresponds to the system language. However, you can define the language yourself.

You will have noticed that not all the texts appear in the desired language. This is because the data has not been completely translated.


We use icons and abbreviations to visualize the data in SportFlash. Here are some explanations.

Live Indicator

If a red bar is displayed on the left of an event, it means that the event is currently in progress.


If a cup is shown beside a player or team, the player/team has won the match. The winner is always displayed at the top.

The ball indicates who has the first service in the respective set.

Tie Break.

The score of the player who is leading in a set is shown in bold, irrespective of whether the set has ended or not.

If an umbrella is shown, it means that the game has been interrupted or not even started.

Team sports

The following distinctions are made in team sports such as football or ice hockey:

The score is shown during and after the game.

An interrupted game is indicated by a U!.

An abandoned game is indicated by an A!.
