KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - The Tennessee Athletic Department launched the new UTSports.com on Tuesday, a website that includes all Tennessee athletics programs and features them in a progressive new format. The site contains the same information previously found on UTSports.com and UTLadyVols.com in a single, consolidated site that features all Tennessee men's and women's athletic teams.
"The new UTSports.com provides our fans an opportunity to learn about the accomplishments of all of our student-athletes in one primary location with a fully consolidated website." said Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Dave Hart. "We believe we have created a site that showcases our entire athletics program in a more visually appealing way with high-quality photography and is easy to navigate as well."
The new UTSports.com aims to create one home for all Tennessee fans to receive information regarding the Big Orange with the following enhanced attributes:
Larger and more vibrant images on the homepage to showcase student-athletes and teams with our best photography.
Easier access to most popular content (schedules, rosters and news links) in the primary drop-down menu.
More prominent video content on the home page, updated daily.
Simplified and improved site design for using mobile tablets such as the iPad.
Emphasis on most-viewed, most-accessed content like desktop wallpapers, posters, etc.
Redesigned and enhanced UTTix.com, including an easy-to-navigate mobile version.
To coincide with the launch of the consolidated UTSports.com, Tennessee Athletics will be utilizing one official Twitter account for all UT teams: @Vol_Sports.
