Mississippi State and Experience have partnered to deliver fan experience technology for Mississippi State basketball fans.
Beginning with the Jan. 11, 2014, men’s home game versus Ole Miss, fans will be able to use their smartphones to purchase in-venue seat upgrades and game day experiences, branded “Maroon Memories,” which will include a visit to the fan’s seat from the MSU Spirit Group, standing with the team on court during the National Anthem, and an opportunity to participate in on-court contests for cash prizes.
Prior to the game, fans may visit hailstate.expapp.com to register and opt-in to receive notifications via text message when seat upgrades and Maroon Memories become available. Credits for Maroon Memories will be given gratis to exclusive fans groups including Bulldog Club members and Hail State Rewards members. Single game buyers will also be able to purchase via their smartphone on the day of the game.
“At Mississippi State, our goal is to make every game a special event for fans,” MSU athletics director Scott Stricklin said. “With Experience, MSU supporters, both current students and alumni, gain a quick and easy way to enhance their visit to Humphrey Coliseum. And, with this value-added service, our faithful fans can create special memories at each and every game.”
Experience President Ben Ackerman added, “At Experience, we work with colleges and universities across the country like MSU that are putting a special focus on fans and are seeing the benefits, including increased ticket sales and an overwhelming spike in enthusiasm for their favorite team. Together with Mississippi State, we are able to bring a superb experience for men’s basketball fans, including Bulldog Club members.”
