Florida Gators App Will Help Fans Get More Engaged At The Swamp

The Univ. of Florida has launched a new mobile app that "offers the chance for a fan to get involved" in a variety of ways, according to Edgar Thompson of the ORLANDO SENTINEL. The Florida Gators app offers fans what it is calling "Swamp Moments." For a $25 fee, fans "can greet players as they get off the bus for Gator Walk." A $100 fee "gives fans a chance to watch the halftime show from the field." Fans have the opportunity to "play catch on the field after the game for $200 and for $350 sing the alma mater on the field with the team following a game." People can "connect to their Ticketmaster account and store tickets digitally." The app will also add "ease and convenience to the game-day experience." Another feature of the app is "Swamp Stats," which allows fans to "record the games they have attended" dating to the '95 season. Eventually, the app "will include games prior" to '95. Meanwhile, student tickets this season will be "exclusively digital while other fans can use either paper or digital tickets." UF AD Scott Stricklin said the goal is to have "all tickets being digital next year" (ORLANDO SENTINEL, 8/6).
