Game day means everything to fans, even if some of them can’t sit still for the whole thing! Creating an engaging, exciting game day experience is vital.
In this blog, we’ll explore why integrating interactivity within event centres can deliver value and provide some tips on how to create an unforgettable game day experience.
With increasing competition for attention, teams are striving to level up digital event products to create an immersive, interactive experience for fans throughout their journey. But how?
We all know that fans love to interact and feel involved: from making pre-game team and score predictions, through to checking team news, statistics and then after the game giving their opinions on what they saw.
By integrating fan engagement capabilities into your event centre, you can create a fully immersive experience that serves your fans at every stage of their game day journey.
Drive tangible business value
As sports teams compete to build global fan bases, where first-party data capture is a must, a key differentiator can often engage fans beyond the event itself. Building event centres that consolidate various real-time interactive features like gamification, live video, social commentary are vital to building engagement and participation, upscaling a live event for fans.
