UW-Eau Claire Athletics Launches New Web site

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (Blugolds.com) – UW-Eau Claire Athletics has launched a newly-designed Web site and has also changed its address on the Web.

Since 2009, the Blugolds were found on the Internet at UWECBlugolds.com but the new address is Blugolds.com. The old site will remain active for a period of time to give users access to historical content.

Designed and developed by PrestoSports, a leading provider of Web sites for college and high school athletic departments, Blugolds.com features new video and photo areas and a simplified navigation area designed to help users find information they need quickly. The site provides many other new features but everything was designed around the idea of making information easier to find.

The new site integrates content from the old site seamlessly to give users access to a vast array of historical information. Users have access to more than 600 schedules that contain almost 13,000 events, nearly 700 rosters that hold more than 14,000 athletes, and nearly 4,400 news releases along with a number of other types of information. The History & Honors navigation area provides access to a majority of this information and that area will be a large focus to bring even more historical content online.

In addition to the Blugolds’ new Web site, the department’s Twitter and YouTube pages were updated to provide a cleaner look. A new blog was also launched and users can access the blog at blog.blugolds.com.
