BANDWAGON Teams Up with IdealSeat to Help Fans Find Their "Perfect" Seat

Greenville, SC, -- September 8, 2016.

BANDWAGON, a sports tech startup that helps fans find their “perfect” seat, has teamed up with IdealSeat, the industry leader in fan experience data. With the sports industry and the fans themselves putting more and more emphasis on enhancing the fan’s game day experience, BANDWAGON and IdealSeat are partnering to help both fans and athletic departments.

The idea that fans all want the “50 yard line” seat has changed over the years as the sports fan has evolved. This “ideal seat” is different for everyone and by leveraging data, BANDWAGON opts to provide users with the ability to pick their own "perfect seat". By partnering with IdealSeat, fans will have the unique experience of applying qualitative filters like “family section”, “social” and “in the shade” to ensure that their game day experience is perfect whether you're a recent grad looking to socialize or a young family interested in taking your children to their first game at your alma mater.

"Ticket discovery has been limited to searching by only price and proximity for far too long, but fans are seeking more information in order to customize their game day experience," says Adam Navarrete, co-founder and CMO at IdealSeat. "In partnering with BANDWAGON, we're excited to help today's fan get the best game day experience whether heading to a game with friends, with his or her family and kids, or to root for the home or visiting team."

BANDWAGON relies heavily on data to create an atmosphere and an experience for sports fans to optimize their gameday. “Our partnership with IdealSeat gives us insight into key factors that fans use in choosing tickets to the game of the week,” say BANDWAGON CEO Harold Hughes. “Working with Joel and his team has been seamless from day one, and I attribute that largely due to both companies' keen focus on the fan experience.”
