The new-look FIUSports.com launched July 1.

On Tuesday, July 1, FIU Athletics unveiled a new-look www.FIUSports.com as well as the department’s brand-new fan rewards program, Roar4More.

Having partnered with SIDEARM Sports, FIUSports.com will enter a new era in providing fans with an informative, engaging and entertaining website experience.

The new site includes standard stories, rosters, bios, statistics and overall general information. FIUSports.com will also provide photo galleries, online auctions, live streaming and on-demand videos. Fans will also have the ability to receive updates via RSS feeds as well as via Short Message Service (SMS) or text messaging. The site will also provide live stats for a number of FIU’s programs, including football, men’s and women’s basketball, softball, and baseball.

Additionally, the site is integrated with the Athletic Department’s social media platforms, including Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

The new FIUSports.com will feature a mobile version, as well as a new app for iPhone and Android devices (coming soon). The app will be free to download and will provide fans with stories, stats, live events and much more.

The Roar4More Fan Rewards Program, presented by Brickell Motors, is a social media-based program in which fans can actively participate and interact via official FIU Athletics social media platforms. All Panther fans can earn points toward exclusive FIU Athletics gear and other prizes, as well as once-in-a-lifetime experiences such as leading the FIU football team out of the tunnel, and behind-the-scenes access.

Once registered for Roar4More, fans will be encouraged to link their personal social media accounts to their profile. Users can then earn points in various ways, including but not limited to: attending and checking into FIU athletic events, “liking” Facebook posts (Facebook.com/FIUSports), retweeting @FIUAthletics tweets, and using official athletics hashtags, #Roar4More and #PantherNation.

Roar4More is open to any and all FIU fans — students, alumni, faculty, staff, and ALL other Panther fans.

To register and start earning your way to one-of-a-kind prizes and experiences, visit the Roar4More Fan Rewards Program website. Fans can also create and manage their Roar4More account on the official mobile app, available on iPhone and Android devices. Simply search ‘FanMaker’ in the App Store and, once installed, select ‘FIU Panthers’ from the drop-down menu.

Additionally, the Panther fan who works his or her way to the top of the leaderboard by Thursday, Aug. 28, at 11:59 p.m. (EST), will have the opportunity to lead the FIU football team out of the tunnel at the 2014 home opener versus Bethune-Cookman on Saturday, Aug. 30.
