Is it tradition only that nearly all vertical scoreboards go from top to bottom (0-13) as it doesn't seem very logical to me.

The old club I was with, the numbers went upwards, so that the higher the number the higher up the scale it was. Makes much more sense to me. Also top is considered best (league tables etc.) so that is where the highest number should be.

Views anyone?

Never thought about that one but what you say makes sense.

Personally, I prefer the 'flip over' scoreboards that you see at most of the bigger French comps - very clear and viewable from both sides.
