WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - The Pac-10 Conference, in conjunction with Student Advantage's FANSonly Network, is expanding efforts to provide fans with complete coverage of the Pac-10 Conference through the launch of a comprehensive official athletic website located at www.pac-10.org. The site, which re-launched the afternoon of Thursday, October 12, will be the official online source of information, merchandise, multimedia and more, directly from the Pac-10 Conference office.
The Pac-10's official athletic website will provide fans with complete information on all Pac-10 Conference activities, including updates from each of the member institutions. Also included are photos, audio and video clips, event coverage, rosters, schedules and interactive promotions and games. The FANSonly Network, which publishes official athletic websites for nine of the Pac-10 member schools, also plans to incorporate sports information from the individual school athletic websites into www.pac-10.org.
'The Internet continues to be an increasingly important information tool, and we are thrilled to have partnered with FANSonly to create an Internet site that provides a comprehensive and cutting edge resource for our fans,' said Pac-10 Commissioner Tom Hansen. 'The menu provided in our new FANSonly site will offer the most up-to-date and complete coverage of the Conference of Champions.'
'We are excited to have the Pac-10 Conference join the FANSonly Network,' said Jeff Cravens, FANSonly Network's Vice President and General Manager. 'Pac-10.org is the complete destination for fans of all the Pac-10 schools, and it's an excellent way for fans to follow their favorite teams and news from the conference level. The power of the Internet has become a vital part of any conference's marketing, promotional and information efforts, and it is a credit to the Pac-10 that they are taking full advantage of it.'
Through www.pac-10.org, computer users will be able to access virtually anything they would want to know regarding the Pac-10 Conference and its affiliate schools. Live game coverage, student-athlete and coach biographies and profiles and statistics will be on the site on a regular basis.
