MLR fans have gotten their first taste of what the recently announced PT SportSuite-MLR partnership has in store with the launch of the official MLR app, coinciding with the 2021 season’s first round of matches.
Featuring the latest MLR news, fixtures, results, match highlights, as well as team specific content in the form of player squad listings and player profiles, the app aims to become the preferred destination for MLR fans looking for their MLR fix on mobile.
As part of a phased approach, further fan engagement modules – in the form of a dedicated Fan Zone, where fans can take on media challenges for reward, and augmented reality scanning that will bring MLR logos to life – will be released as the season progresses.
“It’s been a pleasure working with the MLR team so far to provide more for the fans,” says PT SportSuite CEO Rich Cheary. “All indications thus far point to the app being warmly received and we’re confident it will become a real one-stop shop for MLR fans who are mobile-first and on the go.
“This is just the first step as we look to put in place the platforms that enable MLR to establish an engaged an rewarded fan community on mobile; learn more about their fans; provide more value for sponsors via branded campaigns and ultimately become one of the most digitally enabled leagues in North America.”
Reaction to the release of the app has been positive with over 5000 downloads across Android and iOS devices within the first week.
