CUW partners with PrestoSports for new athletics website

MEQUON, Wis. – Concordia University Wisconsin's Athletic Department, in partnership with PrestoSports, is proud to announce the release of its new athletics website.

The new website maintains the same content previously available to CUW Falcon fans, including news, statistics, schedules, biographies and historical information, while offering a new viewer-friendly navigation system to go along with opportunities to showcase video and photos of the student-athletes and their teams.

CUWFalcons.com will continue to serve as an all-access area for fans to find information on their favorite teams and student-athletes. The new website allows fans to continue to follow Falcon teams via a new live stats platform, and audio and video broadcasts at select events.

"Partnering with PrestoSports for the design of a new website is another positive step forward in providing the most up-to-date information to better serve our student-athletes, potential student-athletes, fans and friends of the Athletic Department," Director of Athletics Dr. Rob Barnhill said. "We have new areas on the website designed to showcase the accomplishments of our student-athletes and teams, and reach out to the community."

The most noticeable difference to the new CUWFalcons.com is the graphical redesign, as an effort was made to incorporate a greater variety of photos and video, while creating a more fluid look. Another significant change can be found in the main navigational setup, which was moved to the top to create a wider page that could display more content and keep all of the favorite features from the previous version of the site.

The upgrades extend well beyond the new look of the site however, as videos can now be played straight from the headlines and at-a-glance box scores are available within the game recaps. Other features include completely revamped news, roster, bio and schedule pages, a composite events calendar, rolling banners for promotional events and improved hosting capabilities for CUW's new online photo store.

Falcon fans will also be able to follow CUW athletics better on their mobile devices with the launching of a brand new mobile version of CUWFalcons.com. The mobile site is programmed to come up automatically on smart phones and tablet devices and can also be accessed through a link at the bottom of the website.
