The Jordan Olympic Committee (JOC) has launched a new website.
The website, described as a one-stop shop that connects citizens to everything they need to know about Jordan sport, is designed to allow the JOC to communicate better with its National Federations and local sports fans, it is claimed.
It includes a daily sports news service and dedicated National Federations section, as well as a calendar of major sporting events in Jordan and exclusive interviews with some of the country's athletes.
The JOC’s official clothing partner PEAK has teamed up with the website and will offer one lucky sports fan the chance to win exclusive Team Jordan merchandise every month through its ‘Become a FANatic’ campaign.
“The aim of the site is to become the most trustworthy source of local sports news and information,” said Lana Al Jaghbeer, JOC secretary general.
“It will also heavily promote active, healthy lifestyles and ensure sports participation is easily accessible for all men, women and children.
“The new website tools will bring greater interaction between the JOC and our National Federations, enabling us to reach new audiences and engage with more young people in Jordan than ever before.”
Under the JOC communications plan called Living Sport, initiatives are being developed to engage with Jordanians to ensure sport plays a leading role in the Kingdom’s development.
In parallel with the new website, official Apple iOS and Android applications will be launched in August, providing sports fans with relevant news directly to their phones and tablets and supporting the JOCs drive for sport to play a fundamental part in the lives of all Jordanians.
