In Focus: Perth Wildcats launch new app integrated with GameDay Fan Membership
GameDay has worked closely with Perth Wildcats to integrate the Wildcats’ member data, powered by our Fan Membership platform, with their new app.
We have worked in conjunction with the Wildcats to scope the integration, which has successfully been released to Perth Wildcats members.
Using an API integration from GameDay’s membership platform to the new Perth Wildcats mobile app, the project aims to give the team's members an intuitive and seamless matchday experience using a mobile membership pass to quickly and easily scan into matches.
More about the app
Launched in November, the history-making app is available to download through the App Store and Google Play. The official app of the Perth Wildcats is a one-stop destination for inside access to the 10-time NBL Champions.
- Users can get the latest news and video direct to their phone, while getting to know the full playing squad.
- The app helps users keep on top of upcoming games as well as where to tune in, and how to get their hands on tickets to the best show in town.
- Via the integrated membership tab, members can easily access their membership card, and use this to access home games.
- The app will allow for fans to experience game days like never before, with exclusive offers from club partners and exciting fan engagement opportunities.
Rory Stewart, GameDay sport specialist, said: “This is a really exciting integration and an important step in the evolution of the match day experience in elite sport. We’re proud to work with Perth Wildcats to further enhance the digital experience of their membership base, particularly in the ever-changing landscape of live sport and the responsibility we all share to create a safe and smooth attendance process.”
