SUNNYVALE, Calif. and FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Revolution and CrowdZone, the world’s first mobile crowd network for sports fans, have formed a partnership to introduce a New England Revolution portal on the mobile application.
Available free on iTunes (search: CrowdZone), the iPhone application allows users to view game scores and photos, chat with other fans, win prizes and receive special offers on tickets, merchandise and virtual goods from the New England Revolution.
To celebrate the launch of CrowdZone’s New England Revolution application, fans who download the app and check-in during the team’s next home match – Saturday, Sept. 25 against the Columbus Crew – will be entered into a drawing to win Revolution tickets to a future game.
"We're excited to be partnered with Crowd Zone and give our fans yet another way to interact with fellow Revs supporters on game days, both home and away,” Revolution Chief Operating Office Brian Bilellosaid. “It’s a great app for fans to find out who else is watching the games, and even interact with opposing fans right from their mobile phone. Through this partnership we, along with CrowdZone, will reward fans for their enthusiasm with both real and virtual prizes throughout the season."
“We are very excited to work with the New England Revolution to bring some of MLS’s top fans to CrowdZone,” said CrowdZone’s Co-Founder Todd Sullivan. “Revs games are an entertaining and exciting experience and now you can ‘join the Revs Crowd’ in a way never available before. Just download CrowdZone and check in with other fans around you.”
CrowdZone is available for free on iTunes for iPhones and similar devices.
