NCAA.com has a new feel after a relaunch on Monday by Turner Sports.
The new NCAA.com will provide fans with coverage of all men’s and women’s NCAA sports during the regular season and championships, with school-specific content for more than 1,000 NCAA institutions.
As part of the relaunch, NCAA.com will now include the following:
Live Video and Highlights: Fans will be able to experience intense action from more than 60 championships by watching live video content on NCAA.com and video highlights from all 88 NCAA championships.
Original content focused on student-athletes: The site will include weekly pieces that focus on the student-athletes off the field; video interviews with coaches, administrators and student-athletes; features on school spirit; in-depth analysis of the top must-see matchups from each of the fall, winter and spring sports across all three divisions and much more.
Facebook and Twitter: The site will offer social media functionality from Facebook and Twitter, including a collection of the best tweets of the week from student-athletes, coaches and fans and uploaded content from Facebook pages.
Online merchandise, photo store and tickets: Fans can purchase their officially licensed team and championship merchandise from the official NCAA online store (NCAA.com/store). NCAA championship photos and DVDs will be available for purchase via the site immediately following championship games. Fans will also be able to go online to purchase tickets for NCAA championships.
“Our partnership with Turner Sports and the relaunch of NCAA.com enables the NCAA to feature the tremendous stories of the student-athletes competing in collegiate athletics on a robust, digital platform that reaches a mass audience,” said Greg Shaheen, interim executive vice president of championship and alliances at the NCAA. “NCAA.com will be synonymous with college sports and will be the destination where millions of college sports fans will go for the most comprehensive and in-depth coverage of 88 NCAA championships.”
