University of Oregon (UO) athletics is one of the most prominent and innovative brands in the sporting world today. New leadership established goals related to its online presence based on two immediate needs. Success for a first of its kind online fundraising event was critical, as Nike and other key sponsors were involved. Secondly, UO wanted a record spike in ticket sales for the football team’s appearance in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl and season ticket sales for men’s basketball. UO hired FUSESENSE to develop and implement an online strategy and integrate it with its overall branding and marketing efforts.
