Georgia Southern Athletics Launches App for Android and iPhone
STATESBORO, Ga., BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., and CUPERTINO, Calif. – Georgia Southern Athletics launched both Android and iOS editions of its mobile app, offering fans another way to connect with their favorite Eagle programs. The free mobile app, named “Eagles GATA,” is available in the Google Play store and on iTunes.
Providing immediate access to core content from the Georgia Southern Athletics website, the mobile app integrates Georgia Southern Athletics’ social media and multimedia offerings. Fans can listen to replays from the Georgia Southern Radio Network, clips from the Southern Pride Marching Band as well as the official game song “Blue White.” Through the live link, fans can watch games, enjoy encore broadcasts and the latest interviews with Eagle coaches and student-athletes.
An exclusive fan wall allows fans to post comments and photos and interact with other Eagle fans who have downloaded the app. Points can be compiled for posting a comment with a photo, adding items to a favorites list, watching videos and listening to audio tracks. Push notifications and e-mail subscriptions offer another level of engagement with Georgia Southern Athletics with the ability to earn badges and rewards for attending Eagle sporting events, interacting with the app and sharing content through social media.
The first badge offered on the new app will be for fans who attend the first-ever night soccer game and check in at the Georgia Southern Soccer Stadium (Eagle Field) Friday when the Georgia Southern Men’s Soccer team plays host to Elon at 7 p.m. New content, exclusive offers and other new features will be added to the “Eagles GATA” app functionality as they are available.
Georgia Southern Athletics contracted with Mobile Roadie to provide the platform and content management system for the “Eagles GATA” app. The apps for Mobile Roadie’s 3,000 global clients reach more than 22 million people worldwide. Several sports teams, including the Dallas Mavericks, Los Angeles Kings and Washington Redskins and recording artists Taylor Swift, Drake, Brad Paisley, and Adele, are on Mobile Roadie’s client roster.
