Welcome to the new-look Oceania Sport website!

Friday, October 31, 2008

The new-look website provides links to hundreds of the sporting organisations in the region and covers more than 50 sports. It also carries the latest sport news from Oceania, a calendar of upcoming events and video highlights on the new OceaniaSport TV.

Visitors to the website can easily find links to the countries in the region or select the sports they are interested in and find the relevant organisations’ websites. They can also keep uptodate with news via the Coconut Wireless.

Some of the many organisations that are part of the Oceania Sport website include the Oceania National Olympic Committee (ONOC), Olympic Sports Federations of Oceania (OSFO), Oceania Sports Education Program (OSEP), the Oceania Football Federation and The Pacific Games , as well as the National Olympic Committees (NOCs) and national governing bodies.

An important aim of the website is to unite the regional sports federations and promote sport and sporting excellence in the Pacific. It is a useful resource for education and development and will help improve communications in the region.

SportingPulse CEO Nick Maywald says: “The new website is a fantastic one-stop shop for sport in Oceania. Sport plays an important role in the region and is growing all the time. SportingPulse is proud to have a long association with OceaniaSport and to play its part in developing sport.”

ONOC Regional Sports Development Manager Brian Minikin says: “Oceania Sport is more than a website - it is a viable and sustainable tool that assists sports organisations to do their work more efficiently and effectively by connecting with their members.

“Oceania Sport helps NOCs and national federations to interact by using simple technology that works well even in the most remote locations. Welcome to Oceania Sport v2 - the gateway to sport in the Pacific region!"

SportingPulse project manager Edwina Ricci says: “The revamped site will be a great asset to sports participants, administrators and supporters in Oceania. There are a number of new exciting features and more will be added in the future. We have launched OceaniaSport TV and we will be making a player available for NOCs so they can up load their own video. We’d also like to introduce podcasts.”
