From cheeseheads to metalheads, everybody wins.

With push notifications you can deliver the extra-special attention they crave, helping them be a part of every milli-milli-second of their passion. Engage with fans instantly, personally, delivering super-custom communications, pre-event, post-event and even during the 7th-inning stretch.

Creating magic for fans.

Your fans are your best asset. And the more connected they feel with you, the better it is for them, for you, all the way around. With push notifications, you can do things like:

  • Give a shout out about last-minute ticket sales.
  • Deliver real-time updates, stats, live scores and lineup changes.
  • Craft messages for at-home fans so they feel like a part of the crowd.
  • Pinpoint users’ locations and tailor messages to their situation

Stadium-sized capabilities.

You’ve got a whole stadium full of fans and you can be high-fiving them as the game unfolds. We can send hundreds of thousands of messages a second, making sure every stat, score and celebratory message gets to them.
