An exciting new way for fans of Wisconsin Badgers to stay up to date. UW debuted the updated Badger Gameday App over the weekend, just in time for the volleyball team’s season opener. The updated app includes a dynamic new display that makes getting news and updates easier. In addition, the app allows for in-venue video replay and iBeacon technology that allows for personalized use of the app.
You can download the apps at Apple Store or Google Play. The University of Wisconsin Athletic Department has partnered with YinzCam, Inc., the leading developer of mobile interactive in-game sports technology applications and featuring iBeacon technology, to deliver cutting-edge interactive game day experiences not only at home venues, including Camp Randall Stadium and the Kohl Center, but also on the road beginning with the football season opener in Arlington, Texas, the AdvoCare Classic on Sept. 5.
YinzCam, Inc., the developer of the official Badger Gameday App, will provide a number of features (stats, roster, schedule, breaking news, etc.), along with first-of-its-kind mobile experiences in the college game day space. As a first, the Badger Gameday App will provide video of different camera angles for multiple sports and multiple venues, from both Camp Randall Stadium and the Kohl Center. As a first for YinzCam in the college mobile space, the Badger Gameday App uses technology to push highly relevant location-based notifications to fans via their mobile devices. At this year’s season opener in Arlington, Badgers fans will be welcomed to Texas with engaging mobile content.
“We want to create the very best fan experience for Badgers fans, whether on the road during the football season, or while attending games at home on campus,” said Ben Fraser, Director of External Engagement at Wisconsin. “By giving fans the option to receive push notifications through the Badger Gameday App, they can enjoy a personalized, interactive experience.”
“The University of Wisconsin is dedicated to delivering a first-class fan experience and is pushing the envelope in terms of innovating the college game day experience,” said Priya Narasimhan, CEO & Founder, YinzCam, Inc. “Fans with the Badger Gameday app will be able to stay connected with real-time stats, scores, news, alerts from the Badgers wherever they are, and will be able to take advantage of proximity technology at various locations. We are simply proud that the University of Wisconsin chose to work with us.”
