Razorback fans will soon have a new web address for the latest information on University of Arkansas Athletics as the all-new ArkansasRazorbacks.com launches July 21.
"It is with great anticipation that we announce a new home for Razorback Sports on the internet," Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long said. "Over the past six months, we have begun to blend our two strong and successful athletic departments into one even stronger combined program. Beginning later this month, the first visible signs of our combined program will be seen in our new web-site ArkansasRazorbacks.com where fans can follow all 19 sports and more than 450 student-athletes."
ArkansasRazorbacks.com replaces the two current websites – Hogwired.com for men's teams and LADYBACKS.com for women's teams. Countdown clocks to the new website launch begin today.
"The all new web site will be an integral part of our athletic program and provide a platform to communicate with Razorback fans all over the world," Long said. "We are excited about ArkansasRazorbacks.com and are committed to maintaining a dynamic web presence that will showcase the athletic and academic accomplishments of our student-athletes, as well as share with our fans the very positive impact our program has on the university community and the State of Arkansas."
The new website covers all 19 sports at the University of Arkansas, and will include new features to keep fans up-to-date on Razorback athletics. Special internet-only feature stories on Razorback athletes, behind the scenes looks into Arkansas athletics created by coaches and athletes and expanded video coverage are part of the new website.
The new web site kicks off the week of SEC Football Media Days, and ArkansasRazorbacks.com will be there to cover each day of the event with exclusive content and video features.
The new website will include special fan guide pages for Razorback visitors to Fayetteville, and beginning on Aug. 30, enhanced Game Day coverage of Razorback home football games.
RazorVision takes over the premium website content from Hogwired's RazorZone and LADYBACK.com's All-Access. All current members of the Hogwired premium area will roll over automatically into RazorVision.
RazorVision will provide more streaming video than ever before, including live video coverage of baseball, men's basketball, women's basketball, gymnastics, soccer and volleyball. In addition, plans call for the addition of live video streaming for softball and swimming and diving in the upcoming year.
RazorVision also will provide live streaming audio from ARSN broadcasts of football and men's basketball, the Razorback baseball network and streaming audio from women's sporting events.
Among the new features rolling out in the weeks following launch are interactive 360-degree views of Razorback facilities, new pages for the Razorback spirit squads and a new mobile phone friendly version of the website.
