FURD Site relaunched.

After a long delay and a much needed overhaul, the new Football Unites website has been relaunched. The old site has attracted tens-of-thousands of visitors since its launch way back in mid 1998. However, its design was beginning to show its age and it was becoming more and more creeky as some graphics became missing and some links failed.

The new site contains most of the existing stuff, plus some exciting new features:

The resource library can now be searched

The news section is better organised

Links to external sites have been catergorised and split into several separate pages

The message board is back, and this time there are separate areas to discuss different issues

There´s an interactive survey on the front page, so you can vote on topical issues of the day

For fun, a wordsearch of pioneering black footballers

A guestbook, to leave your comments about the project and this website

Although the new site is now live, there is still much to do. New features will be constantly added and the remaining content off the old site will be ported over. So, watch this space!

If you would like to leave a comment about Football Unites or this website, please visit the Guestbook.
