Brand new websites and features mean lots to look forward to for clubs and leagues in 2014
Welcome to The Clubhouse for our first edition of 2014. As you can see, we've given our monthly newsletter a bit of a makeover to kick off the new year.
We're still bringing you the latest grassroots football news, top competitions, exclusive offers for Club Website members and the latest updates to our services, but now it's all brought to you in glorious technicolour and tailored to suit the device that you're viewing it on.
The new-look Clubhouse heralds the start of an exciting year for Club Website members, with a raft of new developments in store for 2014.
We've got brand new websites under development on desktop and handheld devices, with loads of new features in store for clubs and leagues everywhere.
The new developments actually started before the year kicked off with the launch of our new club service in October 2013. This has gone down a storm with our member clubs and we're excited to give the same treatment to our league website service in the very near future.
Our brand new league website is already in full-on beta testing mode, with our league administrators giving it a final once-over before the we migrate fully to the new service in February.
Any league administrators who want to know more about beta testing or the full launch of the new website, please check your website message inbox and you'll find all the details you need.
Hot on the heels of our league website desktop platform comes our all-new league website mobile service - a mobile-optimised platform specifically geared to smartphone devices, making it perfect for managers, players and supporters who want to update or check their website while on the go.
The brand new mobile platform is in the final stages of testing and now available for a small number of league administrators to test in beta mode. If you'd like to get involved in the beta testing process and put the new league website mobile service through its paces, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're giving our club website service the mobile treatment this year too, so keep your eyes peeled for Club Website mobile - coming soon to a smartphone near you!
And of course, not forgetting our club website desktop platform. We launched Version 1 when Club Website began in July 2005. We're now at Version 4, the brand new site which kicked off this new raft of developments and sent us hurtling into 2014 with a spring in our step!
We've got loads of great features on the horizon for the new platform, so there's more to look forward to between now and the end of the season.
So here's to an exciting and happy 2014 from all of us here at Club Website.
We're glad you're on board for the ride.
