Mountain West Conference, FANSonly Network Launch TheMWC.com
June 21, 2001
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The Mountain West Conference, in conjunction with Student Advantage's FANSonly Network, today unveiled a new website address and complete redesign of the conference's official athletic site, TheMWC.com. The revamped site combines official conference news and information with the latest in digital technology and design.
"The Mountain West Conference takes pride in its web site," said commissioner Craig Thompson. "It is an extremely valuable window through which we are viewed. Our redesign incorporates the elements we believe necessary for an effective athletic web site -- easy navigation, attractive presentation and pertinent information. I would like to thank our web partners at FANSonly for their cooperation and diligence."
Along with the new look and URL, TheMWC.com offers expanded efforts to provide fans and media with complete information on all Mountain West Conference schools and their sports. The site features extensive audio and video clips from the MWC teleconferences and video highlights. TheMWC.com also features online shopping in the Mountain West Conference FANStore and a free TheMWC.com email service. Throughout the year there will also be opportunities to interact online with Craig Thompson through Ask the Commissioner, where Mountain West Conference fans email questions to Thompson.
"We are excited that the Mountain West Conference has chosen to enhance its official athletic site," said Jeff Cravens, Vice President and General Manager of FANSonly. "TheMWC.com is the complete destination for Mountain West Conference fans to follow their favorite Mountain West Conference teams. The power of the Internet has become a vital part of a conference's marketing, media and promotional efforts, and it is a credit to the Mountain West Conference that they have continued to make their site better."
MountainWestConf.com launched on July 1, 1999. Entering its third year as part of the Network, TheMWC.com has increased its audience 86 percent over the past year and currently averages 153,000 page views per month.
