Riverside City College Athletics Launches New Website

 
 
The Riverside City College Athletic Department launched the new official website of Riverside City College Athletics on Monday, December 10, 2012. Boasting a new address, WWW.RCCATHLETICS.COM has a totally new look at a new location with Prestosports.com.
 
“This project was long overdue and we can’t be more excited,” said RCC Athletic Director, Derrick Johnson. “The new site has an up-to-date look with enhanced features that we believe many will find to be more user-friendly. With the rapid growth of modern technology, we understand how important it is to make sure that the Riverside City College Athletics website keeps up with the times, while still being informative and easily accessible.”
 
RCCATHLETICS.COM will be the source for all news, information, scores and schedules on all athletic programs at Riverside City College. It was launched with a unique new design and a number of innovative features including video clips, a revolving headlines area highlighting the top five athletic stories and plenty of content for fans of Riverside City College athletics.
 
“The new web home for Riverside Athletics will be the one-stop shop for alumni, fans, donors, students, and faculty/staff to find the latest information Tiger Athletics.  The bold, user-friendly design will allow our supporters to quickly access the information they need to follow the Tigers,” said Johnson.
 
“Moreover, we will be able to attract more revenue by providing additional content for our current and potential corporate sponsors.  In the coming weeks and months, we will add additional content and features to better take advantage of the exciting new partnership with Prestosports, the Orange Empire Conference (OEC) and the California Community College Athletic Association,” Johnson said.
 
The website will be powered by Prestosports that has a client list of nearly 500 colleges. RCCATHLETICS.COM has a completely new format that will continue to deliver a wide variety of news, features, statistics, and feature enhanced statistics (Live Stats). Some other capabilities include live webcasts, online store, photo archiving, spotlight student athletes, and up-to-the minute game scores. Never miss a sports event with our event calendar, and feature stories on each sport and their athletes. Tiger fans will also be able to follow RCC Tiger Athletics through mobile alerts, Facebook and Twitter updates. Last July, the Orange Empire Conference (OEC) announced the partnership with Prestosports, to redesign and vertically integrate all OEC member schools’ sports sites under the Prestosports banner.
 
“Our Presto Sports software solution provides the OEC with the tools to leverage the information on all sites, leverage the fan base of all schools, and also generate sponsor interest in being able to buy real estate for all conference members in one agreement with the conference,” said Brittany Wright, Prestosports representative and site development coordinator.
 
“The website is still a work in progress, but we welcome any feedback from our fans as we work to make RCCATHLETICS.COM a first-class website,” said Johnson.
