TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State University Athletics has partnered with SIDEARM Sports, the nation’s leading collegiate athletics website provider, to deliver digital content through a new-look Seminoles platform that will launch this summer.

SIDEARM Sports will collaborate closely with Florida State to create a leading-edge site with enhanced functionality for Seminole fans around the globe. The upgraded Seminoles.com will provide a data-rich and engaging experience for FSU fans around the world. With a focus on advanced video capabilities and real-time data integrations, the new website will unlock an unparalleled digital experience for fans that connects them like never before.

The revamped site will provide Florida State fans with a fresh and modern digital experience. For fans at home, in-stadium or on-the-go, the redesigned Seminoles.com will feature an updated, mobile-responsive design with improved navigation and deeper engagement opportunities with the Noles.

“We are pleased to be partnering with SIDEARM Sports and eager to launch a new version of Seminoles.com very soon,” FSU Vice President and Director of Athletics Michael Alford said.  “We are confident that SIDEARM’s expertise will help us tell our great stories and share information with our constantly expanding audience using state-of-the-art technology.”

Seminoles.com will launch on SIDEARM NextGen, the latest version of SIDEARM’s nationally recognized software. NextGen is the future of digital fan engagement, enabling the fastest and most secure websites in the industry. NextGen sites provide fans with faster load times, top-of-the-line security capabilities and interactive elements not available elsewhere.
