Minnesota United today announced plans to launch a new mobile app for the 2019 season to go hand-in-hand with a shift to 100% digital ticketing for all events at the club’s new home, Allianz Field. Created by VenueNext, the app will fully integrate SeatGeek’s technology to make it the club’s official ticketing provider. The integration with SeatGeek is a first for the Silicon Valley-based mobile platform company, which has also built fan apps for the Minnesota Timberwolves and Minnesota Vikings. When the app launches in early 2019, fans will be able to access exclusive team content including videos, photo galleries, news and more, plus get maps to help with navigating the new stadium.
“Our goal with this app is to provide a door-to-door experience for fans that supplements and enhances what we know is going to be a one-of-kind game day atmosphere at Allianz Field,” said MNUFC CEO Chris Wright. “Allianz Field will have so much to offer fans and this app is going to be the best way for fans to get easy access to all that it has to offer. We wanted to choose a developer who is forward-thinking, cutting edge and who can accommodate the ever-evolving needs of our fans and partners. We believe VenueNext can deliver all of the support and technology our fans need at the highest level for a complete and fulfilling experience with our club.
“Our partnership with MNUFC expands our footprint in Major League Soccer and marks our first integration of SeatGeek’s ticketing technology into our platform,” said Anthony Perez, chief executive officer at VenueNext. “VenueNext’s platform allows teams to build stronger connections with fans by providing a seamless and dynamic experience, using our rich data and powerful marketing tools. We look forward to the grand opening of Allianz Field and helping MNUFC to deliver a truly mobile-first experience."
