This will be an exciting weekend of sports for St. Louis and Chicago, and we wanted to present fans with an easy way to view live coverage from the point of view of other fans.
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) November 10, 2015
Homefield, a competitive sports social networking app by local start-up Homefield, LLC, officially launches a local campaign to gear up fans for Chicago rivalry games weekend. Homefield connects fans nearby or remotely to create and interact with popular content in a live feed from sporting events.
“This will be an exciting weekend of sports for St. Louis and Chicago, and we wanted to present fans with an easy way to view live coverage from the point of view of other fans,” says Griffin Morris, CEO of Homefield, LLC.
When users are at a sporting event, Homefield verifies their location and automatically checks them into the social feed for that game, where they will be able to interact with other fans at the event and post comments and photos for everyone to see. Whether a fan is present at a particular sporting event or not, Homefield doesn’t exclude anyone from the action; users can still check themselves into a sporting event’s social feed remotely and chime in.
“Homefield offers an innovative new angle on sports highlights, and makes team banter more fun than ever,” says Morris.
The most popular content users post will earn their team “engagement points”, and the fanbase that earns the most will achieve the “Homefield Advantage” on the app’s leaderboard.
Homefield is available now for free in the iTunes app store. For more information, visit http://www.homefield.me.
