New website launched for Manchester Giants

JDG Sport, in collaboration with Sportbox, is pleased to announce the launch of the new Manchester Giants basketball website, www.manchestergiants.com.

The exciting new website includes an online shop, which gives fans the facility to buy merchandise and tickets for the first time in one place.

Most importantly, the website has been built to match the club’s brand guidelines and ensure its marketing material is uniform across the board, both on and offline.

All existing news content was migrated over, while full player stats were also imported as part of the move.

The homepage slider enables the club to highlight its best and most important content, and there are new sections for the club’s junior and netball sections.

A fully responsive design means that the website is easy to use whatever platform you’re on – be it mobile, tablet or desktop.

Check out the new website at www.manchestergiants.com.

JDG Sport has developed websites for several clubs, including Braehead Clan, Swindon Wildcats and London Lions.

It founded the Sportbox platform, which now provides club websites for community and amateur sports clubs for free. For more information, visit websites.sportbox.co.

JDG leads York City Knights’ campaign

York City Knights has turned to JDG Sport to lead it into a new era with a media and marketing campaign for the 2017 rugby league season.

Following a turbulent 18 months the club finds itself under new ownership, and chief executive Jon Flatman approached JDG due to its established channel in rugby league, Love Rugby League.

JDG Sport will focus on delivering an engaging and targeted media and marketing campaign for the City Knights, encompassing all of its digital channels, including the club website, social media, PR and match day coverage.

JDG Managing Director, James Gordon, said: “We have sponsored York in previous years and it is great to see that they are entering 2017 with some impetus.

“Though the stadium issues in York are well documented, it is a city that has fantastic potential for rugby league, and we look forward to helping deliver that success, primarily off the field but hopefully that can have an impact on the field too.”

JDG Sport, primarily through its Love Rugby League publication, has worked with a host of rugby league clubs, brands and sponsors, including Kingstone Press, Foxy Bingo, State of Mind, Warrington Wolves and Widnes Vikings.
