The new homepage of #effzeh

Modern design, innovative technology, and exclusive content: 1. FC Köln has renewed its online presence. Here is all of the most important information to the changes and brand new design.

Welcome to the new homepage of 1. FC Köln! The first thing you may notice about the new site is the different layout, which stems from the responsive web design. This means: the page is customized to the device from which you have accessed the site. Whether you are using a laptop, smartphone, or tablet, the window will adjust to your screen size without losing its quality or functionality. With high-definition pictures and an easy-to-read font, the new FC website is more user-friendly than ever before!

The new homepage is especially exciting for the club members of FC. All of the videos from FC-TV as well as the GeißbockEcho magazine are all accessible directly from the website. Player profiles are equipped with match statistics, but club members will get access to even more statistics once they login to the page. The golden Hennes symbol is used to mark the special features only accessible by club members. 

Overview of further changes:

  • Detailed Statistics: All FC player profiles are updated with facts and figures
  • Local Connection: The German site is accessible with the domain name
  • Integrated Communication: the FC-Connect interface has made numerous social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram directly accessible on the homepage
  • The Hennes-Cam is back: Germany’s most beloved mascot can be viewed through a live webcam as he spends his time at the Cologne Zoo

Conceptualization and implementation was done through the combined efforts of 1. FC Köln along with the internet agency brandung. In the running 2014/15 season, 1. FC Köln has updated its social media platform FC-Connect as well as the club video-portal FC-TV. With the relaunch of the homepage FC has renewed and connected all of its major digital platforms. The club magazine GeißbockEcho was also modernized at the start of the season, while the club brand was also given a makeover during the season.
