POPULAR WEB SITE FEATURES FRESH LOOK AND NEW FEATURES
Packers fans on the Internet Thursday, Aug. 31, were introduced to two developments that will enhance the way they follow their favorite team as Packers.com re-launched a fresh look and new features, and LambeauField.com made its debut.
Routinely among the NFL's top five most-visited team sites since its inception in 1997, Packers.com takes advantage of the latest technology and offers Packers fans easy-to-access features that allows them enhanced methods to follow the team.
"We're pleased to launch an updated Packers.com for our fans," said Packers President/COO John Jones. "Packers fans always have been strong followers of the team and their use of Packers.com has proven that. The updated site takes advantage of latest in cutting-edge Web design and gives fans many more features to best keep tabs on the team."
The features of the updated site fans will first notice are the new look, headed by a banner that includes images from the team's rich history, a football grain feel and a new horizontal navigation bar.
The site also uses a larger screen setup, 1024 x 768 pixels, which most computer users employ today. The new screen setup allows for more information to be visible on one page, such as news of the day, audio and video links, photos and podcasts, allowing for a more user-friendly experience and enabling fans to get more information with fewer mouse clicks.
In addition to the podcasts, the other, newer online technology offered on Packers.com is RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds. These feeds contain the most recent news, audio, video, etc., and will help keep fans up to date on all of the new content available daily on Packers.com.
While the re-launched site offers some of the newest technology on the Web, Packers fans still can access all the content they've come to expect in a more efficient manner, such as official team news (stories, press releases, community news) multimedia (live audio and video of press conferences, podcasts, photo galleries, live cams, screensavers), Packers history and information on Packers events.
LambeauField.com is a new site designed for fans and visitors as a complete information guide to Lambeau Field and the Lambeau Field Atrium. Included on the site is a calendar of events, as well as information about booking events, dining options and hours for the Packers Pro Shop, Packers Hall of Fame and other Atrium attractions.
The re-launched Packers.com and the new LambeauField.com are among the team's four official Web sites which also include PackersProShop.com and PackersTrainingCamp.com.
Packers.com has been produced by Green Bay's DMiNTERACTIVE, in conjunction with the team, for 10 years.
