Seattle Storm emphasizes enhanced fan experience in latest partnership
SEATTLE, WA. (April 11, 2018) — IdealSeat, and 2-time WNBA Champions, the Seattle Storm, today, announced a strategic partnership, making Seattle Storm an official partner with IdealSeat, the leader in professional and college sports fan experience data powered through its Fan Intelligence™ product.
The partnership, which focuses on recommending fan experiences at live events, launches publicly today for Storm fans, helping them quickly and easily purchase tickets based on desired in-arena experiences, such as “hardcore home fan” sections to “great for food and drinks” sections throughout KeyArena.
“We’re very excited to partner with the Storm and to allow fans to discover and purchase tickets based on a recommended experience,” said Adam Navarrete, co-founder and CMO at IdealSeat. “The Storm’s commitment to leading the league both on an off the court means fans will no longer waste hours searching for information about where to sit. Fans can simply filter tickets by their desired experience.”
This enhanced ticket discovery feature is currently available for fans, and for the Storm’s ticket sales team, in order to connect fans with once-in-a-lifetime events and experiences, makes this partnership all the more meaningful for sports fans.
“We are always seeking ways to enhance the game day experience for Storm fans,” said Kyle Waters, Storm Senior VP of Ticket Sales and Service. “The partnership with IdealSeat will empower our fans to make informed, data-driven decisions, leading to a better time at the game. We are excited to partner with IdealSeat.”
As the Storm enter their eighteenth WNBA season with a home opener at KeyArena on May 20 against the Phoenix Mercury, Storm fans can now find tickets tailored to their preferred experience all season long at KeyArena.
