Wayne Rooney has launched his first official website

The Manchester United and England striker’s management company Client Triple S Sports & Entertainment wanted a new media hub for various aspects of Rooney’s career for his fans to access.

Rooney teamed up with digital agency Lightmaker to set up the new website, which will mainly act as a source for his social media feeds such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

Wayne Rooney said of the site: “I am really pleased with the design of www.officialwaynerooney.com.

“Lightmaker have done a fantastic job and I anticipate a great reaction now that it’s launched.”

George Anger, Managing Director at Lightmaker, said: “Lightmaker is honoured to have been chosen by Wayne as his agency of record. We collaborated closely with him throughout the build process to produce a responsive site that Wayne’s fans can enjoy wherever they are and on any device.

“As ever Wayne remains 100% committed to his fans and our solution harmonises his social feeds into one place, giving them easy and fast access to this sporting legend.”

He added: “Once launched, the site will continue to evolve with the addition of an analytics section which will be launched in time for the 10th anniversary of Wayne’s Premier League debut on August 17, 2012.”

The site was launched  to coincide with Rooney’s comeback from suspension in tonight’s game against Ukraine in Euro 2012.
