Website & Social Media

The JMU Athletics website was re-designed and re-launched in August 2011 to great reviews. The outsourcing of the website to national website host NeuLion, one of the national leaders in collegiate websites and professional and college sports video streaming, shows JMU Athletics' commitment to this vital tool as a fan interactive device and window for our athletic department.


This new partnership will provide many new advertising opportunities.  We will have the ability to sponsor our audio streams, future live webcasts of games, and other new developments. This is a new growing area, and the opportunities for advertisers are expanding more quickly than ever.
