With a New Website Design, SportsYA ‘Kicks Off’ the Year of the World Cup

Sportsya.com, the well-known Spanish sports portal, becomes a ‘digital and multimedia sports network,’ before the 2006 Soccer World Cup


Miami, FL–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–February 6, 2006–SportsYA, the Spanish-language sports content production and distribution company, has a new look, the dynamic redesigning of http://www.sportsya.com, now offering users more information, navigating speed and access, and interactive services plus total coverage of the 2006 World Cup. As part of its expansion process, Sportsya.com seeks to transform itself into a digital and multimedia sports network, in which users can have access to electronic media such as radio and Television, and may hear or see sports content, on the Internet.

“Technological advances have created changes in consumer communication habits and today’s mobility allows them access to information whenever and wherever they wish to have it; this is why we have intergraded traditional media such as TV and radio, with Internet and mobile devices, thus broadening the network’s scope and establishing a permanent relationship with the user,” said Daniel Canel, president & CEO of SportsYA.

As part of its new design, http://www.sportsya.com offers:

— Greater distribution of news and videos, resolution optimization (1024 x 768), which allows for a better visualization of content. The screen width is maximized (in most computers), and users will find everything “handy,” save time and find what they’re looking for rapidly.

— Under “Specials,” divided by sports and/or leagues, stats appear instantaneously without having to click on anything. The information appears by just going over the labels (fixture, position table, etc.).

— Forums SportsYA: in which sports fans from all over the world express their opinions.

— Videos: Thanks to the fact that Sportsya.com has presently become the official sports channel for Hispanic Media, Inc. (HMI), it will provide its users images of sports events of interest to them.

The features mentioned above have been added to the famous segments: Gol a Gol and Minuto a Minuto, which follows soccer games in real time, coverage of all sports, rankings and brief results, the popular “Chicas SportsYA,” games, trivia, and mobile services (information via cell phones), and as usual, the candid and in-depth opinions of prestigious columnists such as Andrés Cantor and Francisco Javier González, among others.

SportsYA has also launched its Internet cell phone page, http://www.sportsyacel.com,

for millions of worldwide users, who can browse the Internet using their mobile phones and/or PDAs, and keep up to date with sports information without having to sit down at their computers.

By taking this new step towards the 2006 World Cup, SportsYA continues its growth process and remains faithful in its commitment of offering the best in sports information for the different communication markets and media.
