04 Feb Building the World’s First Data-driven Ticket Engine Powered by the Crowd
How many data points does it take to find the IdealSeat?
This is the question that the IdealSeat team set out to answer in September of 2011. And the data is in. We have arrived at the statistical tipping point in the pursuit of the ultimate fan experience.
Drum roll please…
Nearly one million total points of information!
New app launching for Spring Training
Over the course of the past four seasons our dedicated crew, including 50 members of our behind-the-scenes Research Team, has attended games in nearly all 30 ballparks to crowdsource data collection specific to the fan experience in MLB stadiums.
In addition, we have mined and analyzed hundreds-of-thousands of batted balls and amenity resources to strengthen our game. The result is the most powerful ticketing system in sports today.
After a winter of researching the fan experience in the NFL, NBA, and MLS, we have developed our technology to be more responsive to the needs of today’s fans. We’ve made the interface seamless and responsive to your feedback to find the best seat in the quickest time and at the lowest price.
Coming Spring Training 2015 we will launch the first data-driven ticket engine powered by the crowd. The system will allow users to find their preferred fan experience and find tickets statistically ranked for those variables.

Introducing the new IdealSeat brand
To top it all off, we’ll be bringing you some of the best resources and updates from the sport technology world on our new website. We spent a little time in the offseason updating our look and feel to represent growing network of fans and sports.
Inspired by the lone red seat in the right field bleachers at Fenway Park – Section 42, Row 37, Seat 21 – which signifies the longest home run ever hit at Fenway by none other than Red Sox legend Ted Williams.
