Visitors to the George Mason athletics web site have a new, comprehensive outlet for information on all intercollegiate departments and Patriots sports teams.

In addition to pages on all teams, the new site––will eventually have areas on academics, administration, aquatics centers, compliance, facilities, the Patriot Club, merchandise, tickets, and sponsorship opportunities.

The site is the primary source for information, news, and updates on any athletic matters. Directions to on-campus athletic venues and links to departmental personnel e-mail addresses will also be included. Fans can access previews, scores, schedules, and statistics on all Mason teams. Visitors may also sign up for a free optional subscriber service where they will receive the latest news releases and event recaps.

Team pages and headline stories are already functional while other areas will be

phased in. Eventually, such services as athletic department job vacancies, online

Patriot Club membership applications, and answers to frequently asked questions will also be available.

“This web site initiative is the result of months of planning to better serve the interests

and needs of our students, fans, alumni, and supporters,” says Jim Engelhardt,

associate athletic director for public relations. “We have secured a domain name that

is recognizable and easy to remember. We will aggressively market the site on

publications, merchandise, and other outlets,” he says. “This is a key component in our strategic plan to build a sustaining fan and donor base for George Mason athletics.”
