ELON, N.C. – As a new era in the Colonial Athletic Association begins today, July 1, Elon University Athletics announced the re-launch of the elonphoenix.com website. The new website, powered by SIDEARM Sports, focuses on providing fans with a streamlined experience that delivers a variety of new features and content in a more user-friendly fashion.

“We are thrilled about the re-launch of elonphoenix.com,” said Elon Director of Athletics Dave Blank. “The new design places a heavy emphasis on fan experience and delivering content in a streamlined fashion. It enables our department to build a deeper connection and a greater digital experience for Elon fans all across the world.”

The new website features a new article rotator that allows for a more prominent display of compelling video and photos. Additionally, tabs on the main article rotator allow fans to easily access social media accounts and game schedules and links for all 17 of Elon’s varsity athletic teams. The website also features a responsive design, allowing automatic detection of screen size that adjusts for desktop, tablet or mobile use for easier viewing.

Popular features such as live video streaming of games will continue to be a regular presence on elonphoenix.com in 2014-15. Elon Athletics and the CAA will announce news later this month regarding a new video streaming platform for fans to watch games live and on-demand for free throughout the year. A broadcast schedule for games this fall will be available soon.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with SIDEARM Sports and the opportunities to provide additional ways for our fans to stay engaged with Elon Athletics,” said Elon Director of Communications for Athletics Dan Wyar. “The new elonphoenix.com presents Phoenix fans with an updated window for which to stay connected with the outstanding student-athletes and coaches that represent Elon University on a daily basis.”
