MEDIA RELEASE MARCH 31, 2009 NEW ONLINE HOME FOR FOOTBALL WEST Football West has today launched two hotly anticipated new websites which will put the peak body for football in Western Australia amongst some of the leading sporting associations in the world. The traditional home of Football West, www.footballwest.com.au has undergone an entire redesign by local web designers, Bam Creative. The fresh look is more accessible, easier to use and much faster than its predecessor. The new website makes it easier for members of the football community to connect with one another, and with a new and easy to use club finder, players will find it easier to find clubs within their local area. In addition to the main website, Football West have today also launched its sister site www.footballwest.tv which will be a dedicated multimedia website to service football fans throughout the world and is the first sporting association website of its kind in Australia. Footballwest.tv will feature all of the latest match highlights, photo galleries, locker room interviews and audio grabs from the local game. Football West will also be launching a number of newsletters and with individual Referee, Competition, Education and Development and General News newsletters, the football community will find it easier than ever to stay up to date with the local game. Ben Fitzpatrick, Marketing and Communications Manager at Football West is excited that the website is up and running. “The two new websites reflects over six months of hard work by Football West, Bam Creative and Fuel Creative to ensure that we can deliver an online presence that is the envy of other associations and codes throughout Australia and the world.” “Everyone at Football West is very happy with the final results, and we hope that the football community enjoys using them to get their football fix” he said.
