The sleek new design of PennAthletics.com was created to improve the ease with which Penn fans and media can stay informed on all news pertaining to Penn Athletics.
"We are excited to unveil the new PennAthletics.com," said Mike Mahoney, Penn's Director of Athletic Communications. "Penn fans are passionate about the Quakers, and the new features available at PennAthletics.com allow those loyal followers more access to the student-athletes, coaches and staff who compete for the Red and Blue."
"Our partnership with the University of Pennsylvania is focused around creating the most compelling digital experience for the Quakers fans," said Ed O'Brien, VP of Marketing for NeuLion."These latest enhancements will provide an even more exciting fan experience including the completely revamped Penn Sports Network."
To coincide with the revamped main site, Penn Athletics is proud to announce a new video player, home of the Penn Sports Network. Accessible from the main page, the online home of the Penn Sports Network is where Penn fans can find live broadcasts, interviews with coaches and student-athletes, highlights from recent action and general video information on Penn Athletics.
Beginning with the first games of the fall season, the Penn Sports Network will be the place to find the most live coverage of Penn contests, including a preliminary schedule of 21 home contests and an additional three broadcasts of audio only. Information on broadcast packages on the Penn Sports Network will be released in the coming days.
A visit to the schedule pages of each sport shows a countdown clock closing in on each team's next contest as well as direct links to media and live stats information for each game. The rosters of all 33 Penn teams now include interactive headshots on the roster page and redesigned bio templates for each student-athlete.
In addition to the information found on PennAthletics.com, Penn fans can stay up-to-date on the Quakers via the official Facebook, Twitter and YouTube accounts of Penn Athletics. Visitors to those social media outlets will be able to receive updates on Penn athletic programs from coaches and staff as well as additional video features from the Penn Sports Network.
