If you’re a genuine sports fan who loves to attend games, it’s likely that you’ve often been frustrated by the lack of local information about game starting times, seating and other information. This is especially true if you’re into more than one sport and just want to know where and when you can grab a ticket and watch the game. Even if you don’t go to many live games, wouldn’t it be great to be able to go more often, and get advice on the best seats and the best places to eat before and after a game?
A Brave New World of Sports
The Web has given us so many great things: social media, real-time sports updates, and news as it happens around the world. But wouldn’t it be even better if all that digital technology and potential for instant communication could be used for the betterment of your sports hobby? With the power of social media and communication, now it can!
Whether you want to know exactly when the Columbia University sports season starts, or where your favorite team is playing and when, a slew of new applications available on smartphones and on websites have you covered. By using the reach of social media and centralizing it in one easy-to-use site, some innovative companies are now offering all sports fans the opportunity to enjoy their teams like never before. Here’s what such a service can offer:
Information: By accessing relevant sources, sports aggregating sites can push useful information to signed-up sports fans, including the start time of their favorite game, where it is being played, how much the tickets are and where to get them from, and even great tips like the best places to eat in the area pre-game!
Local: Sometimes, you just want to go to a game on the spur of the moment, but you’re not sure whether the local college is hosting a basketball game, for example. With this new breed of information-aggregating applications, you now have easy access to all the teams playing right in your local area, including pertinent information like ticket costs and start times.
Connections: By encouraging other sports fans to provide even more information, like meeting places, great eateries, and general commentary on games, you’ll be networking in no time and meeting other sports fans that share your passion for the game. This is about much more than simply providing a dry list of information. It’s a great way to meet new people, form new bonds and have memorable sporting experiences.
A New and Authentic Experience
It’s easy to think that in this age of fast-moving information and people hiding behind keyboards that the excitement of meeting new people and sharing memorable experiences has all but disappeared. But by using the connective power of the Web and social media, some innovative applications are looking to get back to basics and create an authentic experience!
