Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) December 01, 2015
Football fans going to Winnipeg this weekend for the 103rd Grey Cup get to experience the game like never before. SwingTrack™ Mobile by Visual Sports is the simulator of choice featured at The MacDon Fan Experience and Family Zone, part of the Grey Cup Festival.
Visual Sports has created custom software specifically for the Winnipeg blue Bombers. “We’re thrilled our mobile simulator will have its Canadian debut at the 103rd Grey Cup in Winnipeg, and to be working with the Winnipeg Football Club on this,” said Visual Sports President, Peter Muellerchen. “It’s interactive and engaging, which will make it a big hit at the festival and ensure fans will have great memories of their experience for years to come.”
Fans at the event will have the opportunity to participate in two activities on the simulator: Blue Bomber Kick and Throw Game. The first is a quarterback challenge in which they’ll have to complete touchdown passes, with the second enabling fans to experience one of football’s greatest moments – kicking the game-winning field goal.
The games use real sports equipment and track scores, while leveraging SwingTrack™ Mobile’s capability for customizing game formats, stadium environments, team jerseys and players.
“We are excited to work with Visual Sports on this project,” says Wade Miller, President and CEO, Winnipeg Football Club. “We are always looking for ways to bring more to the fan experience, and Blue Bomber Kick and Throw Game is a fun and interactive way for fans of all ages to enjoy the game.”
Following the Grey Cup, the simulator will travel throughout Manitoba playing a key role in the club’s fan engagement and development efforts. Next season, it will be a staple of the in-stadia game-day experience, residing in the Tailgate at the Plaza, Presented by Duraco Windows fan experience area.
This is the latest in a series of deals with some of the top organizations in football. Super Bowl XLIX featured a Visual Sports’ simulator that generated high traffic and a simulator also engages fans at home games of Super Bowl Champion, New England Patriots. As well, the simulator enhanced fan experiences at the 2015 Yahoo! Sports National Draft Day in Las Vegas and last year’s Nissan Heisman House Tour.
