FAN+ and Benchvote partner to deliver fan engagement opportunities
April 5, 2020

Two Australian sporting startups, FAN+ and Benchvote, are collaborating to create exciting online fan engagement opportunities for sports fans during the COVID-19 period.

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 weekly competitions and giveaways.

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. Benchvote is currently working with clients across AFL, NRL, A-League, NBL, Media Companies and Brands

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, start-up ecosystem and are excited to be collaborating to maximise and increase fan engagement and activation opportunities on their platforms.

FAN+ Founder Rod Harys enthuses "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.”

Benchvote Founder and Chief Executive Adam Mussa added “we’re excited to work with Rod Harys and Aaron Warburton at FAN+ to grow and develop their audience through Benchvote technology. We look forward to getting FAN +’s range of incredible experiences, into the hands of more sports fans around the world.”

The teams at FAN+ and Benchvote are working on some exciting campaigns that will be launched into the market shortly.
