YSU Athletics Joins SIDEARM Sports Family

The Youngstown State Department of Intercollegiate Athletics has partnered with SIDEARM Sports to deliver its digital content through YSUsports.com and a mobile app that will be launching this summer.

The new website features a fresh, responsive design with enhanced features that translate well across both desktop and mobile platforms. The website redesign process began in January, and the launch was completed in early May.

With the move from PrestoSports to SIDEARM Sports, the Front Row mobile app is no longer receiving updates. People currently using the Front Row mobile app should remove it from their phones and tablets. Until the new mobile app launches, fans should navigate to ysusports.com in their web browsers for complete coverage of Penguins Athletics. When the new app is ready for launch, it will be publicized on the website and the department’s social media channels.

As part of the fresh design, YSU is showcasing more news on the main home page and each sport page as well as larger photos. There is also a better presentation of content shared on the department’s social media channels, and visitors may also enjoy an improved live stats experience. There are also more revenue generation opportunities through ad placements and sponsorships. Companies interested in becoming a website or mobile app partner should contact Rick Love at (330) 941-7227 or [email protected]

Youngstown State joins the leading website provider of Division I institutions with the switch to SIDEARM Sports. The company has more than 300 Division I clients, including 11 of the 12 Horizon League schools, all 11 Missouri Valley Football Conference teams, all six members who compete in the Mid-American Conference in women’s lacrosse, and six of the eight institutions that compete in the Southland Bowling League.
