OHL Announces Launch of New Web Platform and League Site

Toronto, ON – The Ontario Hockey League in partnership with Stadium Digital today announced the launch of a newly designed website at ontariohockeyleague.com.

The revamped OHL site marks the beginning of a Canadian Hockey League wide network redesign that will see 66 other team, league, and special event websites unveiled in the coming weeks.

All new websites will operate on a WordPress platform and feature responsive technology that streamlines the user experience across all devices.

“The Ontario Hockey League is very excited to introduce a fresh website to provide our fans with more content on a new user friendly platform,” said Paul Krotz, OHL Director of Communications. “The new design not only delivers more content, but provides the information OHL fans crave in a more accessible fashion with a seamless transition from PC, to tablet, to mobile devices everywhere.”

The site offers improved navigation and news feed showcasing more articles, photos, and video content on the homepage, along with a redesigned schedule and enhanced live scoring console.  Fueled by league stats provider HockeyTech, fans can now access a hub of information to follow the action of their favourite teams including game previews, links to tickets and live video and audio streams, a new play-by-play feed that tracks in arena events such as shots on goal and face-offs, along with a fresh box score design.

“The launch of the new OHL website is an important milestone in the CHL’s evolving digital strategy and represents a complete overhaul of the user experience and underlying technology framework”, said Mark Silver, President of Stadium Digital. “Together, we plan to continuously innovate the CHL’s digital platforms to deliver more value to teams, sponsors, and most importantly, the fans.“

This marks the first redesign of the league site since September, 2010, when the CHL produced the largest ever Canadian sports online network launch.

Fans are invited to share their feedback regarding the new OHL website and features by completing an online form.
