UTEP Athletics has joined forces with Fan-i-Am to create UTEPFanZone.com, a website connecting fans through social media, photo sharing contests, game day fan competitions and more.

The program engages Miner enthusiasts and provides membership benefits as well as opportunities for social, mobile and internet based interaction.

UTEP FanZone connects all fans and is designed for both the most avid fan as well as the casual fan. Football to basketball, track or volleyball, all fans are welcome.

Best of all, UTEPFanZone.com is free to all UTEP supporters. Upon registration at UTEPFanZone.com, fans can earn "Pete Points" by attending UTEP athletic events, posting to social media sites, participating in contests and much more. Fans who accumulate the most points will win great prizes; the most popular photos, tweets and posts may show up on the video board at UTEP football and basketball games.

UTEPFanZone.com also offers local businesses the opportunity to connect with the Miner fan base by posting special deals and other promotional information.

UTEP FanZone is the place to connect for students, faculty, alumni, families and friends across the globe. Students can earn points faster and win more prizes by enrolling in the Miner Maniacs program. Membership is only $10 annually, and the first 1,000 students who sign up will receive two official UTEP jerseys, one for football and one for basketball. Students can also register for the Miner Maniacs program through UTEPFanZone.com. Military members stationed at Fort Bliss also enjoy special privileges through UTEPFanZone.com.

"We are really excited about our partnership with Fan-i-Am," UTEP Director of Athletics Bob Stull said. "They are a national leader in fan engagement programs and a consistent source for groundbreaking ideas. Our fans are going to love UTEPFanZone.com. We look forward to uniting our fanbase worldwide through a website that is both eye-catching and easy to navigate."

"UTEPFanZone.com embraces UTEP Athletics by celebrating UTEP fans and the many different ways they wish to engage with their favorite UTEP teams and athletic events," said David Kristal, Augeo's CEO. "We are thrilled to launch Fan-i-Am with the intensity and enthusiasm of the UTEP Athletics community."
