CSUN Athletics Launches Redesigned GoMatadors.com
Matadors partnered with SIDEARM Sports on the relaunch, which features an updated look and feel
NORTHRIDGE, CA — CSUN Athletics today announced its newly redesigned website, www.gomatadors.com. The destination for CSUN Athletics on the web now features an updated look and feel while maintaining the same extensive content and navigation paths that CSUN fans rely on. CSUN Athletics partnered with SIDEARM Sports on the re-launch and CSUN’s athletic multimedia rights are exclusively represented by Learfield Sports, which owns SIDEARM Sports.
“Matador fans deserve the very best, and we’re so proud to unveil the new GoMatadors.com, because it gives them just that,” said CSUN Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Dr. Brandon Martin. “Our new website doesn’t just look outstanding, it also gives us a way to connect directly with our fans, student-athletes, potential student-athletes, faculty, staff and the rest of the growing CSUN community. We now have a way to showcase our expanding video feature content and to better tell all of our success stories.”
The new website features static full-screen images on the home page and main sport pages, as well as an enhanced scoreboard section and a full-screen profile of the Pieology Student-Athletes of the Week. It also features real time Matador social media content and new rotating informational banners and will provide in-depth live stat streams for softball, baseball and men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball and basketball.
The new GoMatadors.com will also prominently highlight video content from the new CSUN Sports Network, which will encompass expanded feature video content, live webcasts, Spanish-language feature videos through CSUN Deportes, extensive social media campaigns through the Cape Crew internship program, Spanish-language social media content through the new Twitter handle @VamosCSUN and more.
The website will continue to provide schedules, rosters, statistics, game recaps, players’ and coaches’ bios and historical information for all 19 CSUN intercollegiate sports. GoMatadors.com is optimized for smartphone and tablet users, and an app update for CSUN Athletics’ Front Row app will be coming soon.
During the 2014-15 academic year, GoMatadors.com had more than 1.6 million page views.
The relaunch of GoMatadors.com follows on the heels of CSUN Athletics’ “Rise of the Matadors” campaign that last summer introduced a new visual identity that modernizes Matador Athletics and showcases a distinctive, classic and iconic athletic image that reflects the history, current success and future aspirations of the department. Last August, CSUN also unveiled the unique new Blacktop @ The Matadome.
