Varsity Spirit (a division of Varsity Brands), the global leader in cheerleading, dance teams, band apparel, camps, and competitions, has officially partnered with Patron Technology to launch its Varsity Spirit Events app.
Patron Technology’s leading live event technology solutions supply a suite of tools and services to some of the largest professional sports organizations, music festivals, and other events around the world. Varsity Spirit was initially drawn to Patron Technology because their mobile app solution allowed them to seamlessly cater to a widely varied audience while collecting insights to better understand their attendees. The app provides the ability to personalize the attendees’ experience with custom schedules and content based on their expressed interests.
“Over the past few months, Varsity Spirit has worked closely with Patron Technology to build, design, and launch our Varsity Spirit Events app to enhance the customer experience at our competitions,” said Varsity Spirit President Bill Seely. “The Varsity Spirit Events app is designed to make sure our parents, families, athletes, and fans are getting the most out of our competitions—from having the ability to find important information before, during and after the event, purchase tickets, and build a custom schedule to make sure they don’t miss their favorite teams, to viewing all the great things to do at the event while their teams aren’t competing—there’s something for everyone! We are excited to take this next step in elevating the customer experience at our events and look forward to partnering with Patron Technology to make that happen.”
“The chance to partner with an industry leader like Varsity Spirit is why we do what we do,” said Rick Weldon, Patron Technology’s SVP, Client Strategy. “We’re excited to see Varsity Spirit put our event technology to work, better harnessing the power of their data while simultaneously enhancing their competition experience.”
Leveraging Patron Technology's solutions, Varsity Spirit aims to transform their attendee experience, starting this month with the 2023 NCA All-Star National Championship.
