The Hurricanes are the Wellington based Super Rugby franchise and home to some of the game's biggest legends.
With the 2016 season approaching, and in a move to improve their online presence the Hurricanes team required a complete website redesign and build.
Working closely with the Hurricanes team we designed and built a fully responsive, highly interactive, user focused website that now acts as a key platform for promoting the Hurricanes team, their events and most importantly encourages communication and engagement with their fans. Key features include:
- Dedicated player section which allowed users to view player info, stats, photos and twitter feeds
- Fan zone section which integrated their social media feeds, including Twitter, Facebook and Instagram
- Video integration - the ability to automatically pull videos from their YouTube channel to selected sections of the website
- Automated game information including live blogging, scoring, competition points/standings and a countdown to upcoming games.
