Fanatic can make every game feel like a home game, even in enemy territory. We want to put you where the action is and make sure every game day is a memorable experience shared with fellow fans.
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 13, 2013
Fanatic, the social sports app that helps fans find the best places to watch and share every big game experience, has launched the Android version of Fanatic on Google Play to complement its popular iPhone app.
Fanatic is a social sports app where fans find the best places to watch big games surrounded by fellow fans wearing their team colors. The app provides fan location and top venue rankings for NCAA football and basketball, the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL and MLS, along with the top European soccer leagues, including the English Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, Serie A and the UEFA Champions League.
“Fanatic can make every game feel like a home game, even in enemy territory,” said Babak Poushanchi, Founder of Fanatic. “We want to put you where the action is and make sure every game day is a memorable experience shared with fellow fans.”
Fanatic recommends specific venues nearby based on a user’s location, sports interests and the team ranking of those venues. These Fanatic team rankings are built over time based on the venue’s ability to attract the local fans of a specific team.
Fanatic has been eagerly adopted by fan clubs and college alumni groups who use the app to connect with fans in cities around the world. For example, Fanatics searching for the top ranked Bayern Munich bar in New York are directed to Smithfield NYC, where hundreds of Bayern fans gather for each game.
Fanatic is designed to recognize and reward fan engagement every day. Fanatics earn points as they watch their teams play and interact with fellow fans. Every check-in, game plan and “share” earns them points. Users can compete against friends and fellow Fanatics for top fan ranking in their area. Fanatic points will be redeemable for rewards in the near future.
Fanatic is a New York City-based startup that has developed a highly engaging sports fan mobile application that connects millions of fans and venues all over the world. Fanatic enables sports fans to find fellow fans in their area, locate the best venues nearby (i.e. "#1 Ranked Arsenal bar in NYC" or “#1 University of Michigan bar in Chicago"), create and track game plans and be rewarded for their fandom. Fanatic delivers value to, and measures engagement across, the entire local sports market: fans, teams, leagues and local establishments. Fanatic is currently available for the iPhone and Android devices.
