IRANIAN SPORTS HOMEPAGE KICKS OFF

We are pleased to announce that the Iranian Sports Homepage (ISH) goes live in the internet this Sunday, April 7, 1996. It can be reached at http://www.sportestan.com

ISH has been at the works for the past year. We started the design and implementation six months ago. We hope you will enjoy your visit.

The Iranian Sports Homepage (ISH) is an electronic publication issued every Saturday of the week. ISH is sponsored and owned by Sportestan Publishing, a publishing company dedicated to sports.

The purpose of ISH is to disseminate accurate multimedia-based information about Iranian sports in the world. The information is categorized into two sections as follows:

1- Archival information about Iranian sports in the past. ISH intends to go back into the Iranian history, and catalogue and compile as much information as is available in the records.

2- Weekly broadcastng of the news to keep the readers informed about the Iranian sporting activites. This is what we refer to as our "on-line" news. As new issues of ISH are published, on-line news will be indexed to give the reader the ability to access a particular subject by its sport category.

To learn more about the Iranian Sports Homepage, when you visit us click on the "About ISH" icon at the bottom of the Front Page.
