Gametime Mobilizes Fans through Launch of First Prospective Social Network

‘Connect’ Creates Real-Time View of Events Your Friends Will Attend
and How to Join Them

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Gametime,
the leader in on-demand mobile ticketing, today introduces an entirely
new way for fans to discover live entertainment. The new Connect feature
acts as a prospective social network. It allows fans to see which games
and shows their friends are planning to attend and helps to bring them
closer together through shared experiences.


Connect presents upcoming games and shows friends will be attending via
Gametime. Users can select “Join Friend” and will be immediately
directed to the closest seats available. Connect also displays friends
that are selling tickets for upcoming events with personalized messaging
describing the experience at those seat locations. Connect lives on the
tab bar on the Gametime iOS app. Fans simply sign in with Facebook to
discover friends’ planned activities within the stream.

Connect goes live today for Gametime users in the SF Bay Area and Los
Angeles. The offering will expand to additional markets in the coming
weeks.

“Connect creates an entirely new way to live your life. It’s not just a
social network. It’s not just a marketplace. It’s a much more intuitive
way to find your way together with friends,” said Brad Griffith,
Gametime Founder and CEO. “Today, social networks are retrospective.
We’re excited to bring a prospective view of what friends will be doing
to Gametimers. People have more fun with their friends so our goal is to
make it easier to learn what friends are doing and to get larger groups
together.”

To support the launch, Gametime has created a video showing the
potential impact of Connect. The video, developed in partnership with Chamber
Media
, showcases key elements of Gametime’s promise to fans by
highlighting the story of two friends’ crazy day gathering more friends
to get to a game.
