Memphis Athletics Launches Redesign Of GoTigersGo.com
July 30, 2013
We are the new GoTigersGo.com! Hear Us Roar!
The University of Memphis Athletics Department, in conjunction with website host CBS Interactive and Tiger Sports Properties, announce the redesign of its official website, GoTigersGo.com, Tuesday. The new GoTigersGo.com site offers fans a modern design, enhanced menu structure and better navigation to move more easily around the site.
The improved website - which kept a similar horizontal "look" it received in the 2011 redesign - continues to provide all of the sports schedules and rosters, game previews and recaps, statistics, online media guides, player and coach bios and historical information on Tigers athletics as in the past, but has added a few updated features.
Some highlights of the new GoTigersGo.com are:
Narrow masthead serves as a "sticky bar" to keep the top navigation right with users as they scroll
Larger photos and graphics on all pages, allowing fans to take in all the action of Tigers athletics
A sports drop-down menu with roster, schedule, Facebook (if available), Twitter (if available) and ticket links for each program, making those features easily accessible off the front page
The sports drop-down menu also has a link to download all athletics schedules to your Outlook or Google calendars
A total of 12 featured stories compared to the five stories on the previous site design
The Memphis Tiger Network video player, which is prominently featured below the headlines area
An athletics promo bar with links to photo galleries, photo store, media guides, computer wallpaper downloads, tickets and more
A more visible calendar of events - located just under the athletics promo bar - with GameTracker, video and audio links
Social media links "sticky bar" down the right side of the front page and all sports pages
Large photos used as backgrounds for each sport's internal pages such as rosters, schedules, statistics, bios and news releases/stories
