Two Australian sporting startups FAN+ and Benchvote are collaborating to create exciting online fan engagement opportunities for sports fans during the COVID-19 period and beyond
Benchvote software helps sports rights holders and sponsoring brands better engage and understand their audience through a library of effective and engaging digital campaigns, coupled with comprehensive analytics and data acquisition.
FAN+ is a sporting and entertainment experience platform that connects fans with live experiences with athletes, personalities and sporting clubs. Both companies understand the sporting landscape, startup ecosystem and are excited to be collaborating to maximise and increase fan engagement and activation opportunities on their platforms.
Even though world sport is facing an unprecedented lockout period, FAN+ and Benchvote are still committed to keeping sports fans engaged with a range of competitions, quizzes and trivia questions based on current and past sporting events with fantastic weekly competitions and giveaways.
Founder Rod Harys says “We are thrilled to be working with Benchvote and engaging our fans using their innovative technology. A focus for us is to keep fans engaged and connected to sport and with Benchvote we can certainly offer this via our online channels.”
