CONWAY - The Coastal Carolina Department of Athletics and CBS College Sports announce the launch of the redesigned online destination for Coastal Carolina Athletics, GoCCUSports.com.
The Department of Athletics has enjoyed a relationship with CBS College Sports since 2009 when GoCCUSports.com was designed and launched. The site has undergone numerous changes since that time but has always served as the official source of information for Chanticleer athletics.
“Technology is such a big part of what we do and how we communicate every day,” said CCU Director of Athletics Hunter Yurachek. “Our fans, recruits and staff are so technically savvy these days that we have to do our best to remain ahead of the curve in our communication methods. It is important that we continue to take a hard look at what we are doing, how we are doing it and make sure it serves the Chanticleer nation in the most complete and innovative ways.”
GoCCUSports.com will continue to serve as the communication centerpiece for Chanticleer athletics and the most complete online destination for Chanticleer fans.
A few key features of the new site are:
Enhanced Navigation, Graphics and Design - It will be easier than ever for fans to follow their favorite Chanticleer teams and find the most up to date information.
Updated Design - The new design features rotating stories on the front page with an even larger photo layout. In addition, photo slides between each headline allow student-athletes from each sport to be highlighted. Also the new design is consistent throughout the site and allows video to be embedded on each page.
Coastal Carolina Photo Store – Coastal Carolina has partnered with Printroom.com and CBS College Sports to offer Chanticleer fans the opportunity to purchase high-quality reprints of select photographs of Coastal Carolina athletics events online. Due to NCAA guidelines, only certain photographs can be made available for resale.
All Access Chant Vision - The most comprehensive coverage of Coastal Carolina Athletics is All Access Chant Vision. Get the games, highlights, press conferences and coach's shows you want - all in one place.
Official Online Store - Fans and alumni can purchase official Coastal Carolina licensed products from Coastal's official online store – CCUGear.com.
Calendar and Scoreboards – A weekly events calendar highlights upcoming Coastal Carolina athletic events prominently on the front page of GoCCUSports.com, enabling fans and alumni around the world to keep track of who is playing where. The daily scoreboard is constantly updated and provides fans with the latest results.
