UM Launches Redesigned HurricaneSports.com
CORAL GABLES, Fla. - The University of Miami Athletics announced a partnership Tuesday with NeuLion to provide Hurricanes fans with an enhanced and improved experience through the redesigned HurricaneSports.com.
UM has worked with new partner NeuLion over the course of several months to deliver an innovative, custom design and layout that delivers news and information to Miami Hurricane fans around the world - anytime, anywhere. The new flexible layout of HurricaneSports.com will allow the department to adapt its delivery of news to feature the most important and engaging items at the most important times.
"Over the last two years, we have revamped our online philosophy and seen a tremendous response from our fan base to our focus on story-telling and engagement," Associate AD for Communications and Marketing Chris Freet said. "With this new partnership, we focused on delivering that content to more platforms and in a more efficient manner than ever before."
HurricaneSports.com will continue to crank out news, video, social media, blogs, score updates, shopping and much more.
