Viafoura Digital Experience Platform Use Case

Sports Fan Engagement

Build a community of sports fans on your property and get the insight you need to deliver your business goals.

Build unique fan experiences
create value

Creating a unique fan experience is a driving force in the sports industry today, and just as important is the ability to keep those fans engaged year-round.

If it’s in-season, your fans need a second screen, or multi-screening experience – which has gone from a growing trend to an expected behavior of viewers of live sporting events. These fans want to  read and chat about the event as-it-happens with other fans, experts, or moderators.

During the off season, fans want a place to engage with each other and debate the past season, share insights, and maybe even share their predictions about next season.

Take your sports coverage to the next level by adding powerful engagement tools and a truly immersive social experience across your app, website or OTT offering that keeps your fans on your site year round. With Viafoura’s solutions we make it easy for you to become the go-to destination for fans, superfans, and the casual audiences.

Drive insight and purchases
unlock your data

Leverage the discussion taking place in your engagement suite to get insight into how your fans are feeling, what content they enjoy, and then drive even deeper to understand who is interested in purchasing tickets, fan apparel, or other merchandise.

Viafoura’s solution generates powerful data and personas that enables you to get the audience insight you need. This first-party community data captures the full engagement and passion of your users. It gives you information about your fans’ consumption, interests, actions and reactions all in one powerful data set.

98 unique event types per user —

Use Live Blogs to deliver insightful content in real-time

Provide your fans with the insight they crave during any sporting event by continuously updating your live feed. Publish content and commentary in real-time, post player stats and automatically ingest social posts and feeds into your live blog.

Whether you want to live blog a multi-day event or use Live Blogs on a single sporting event, the choice is yours. Either way you have an open channel to provide engaging content to your users.

Enable your audience to engage with you and each other using Community Chat

Bring your fans together at your next event by hosting a real-time Community Chat. Your fans will love the opportunity to easily converse – and they’ll present themselves into the experience in a real-time sequence – building an easy to follow discussion.

Use Conversations to have your fans engage before, during, or after events

Give your fans the opportunity to engage on a variety of topics before, during or after events with Viafoura’s Conversations. It’s like a digital tailgate party that everyone can join – encouraging your community to flourish even when you’re not actively involved.

Conversations give your audience the power to voice their opinion, feedback and comments and create highly engaging discussions – and, if you have multiple concurrent sessions, you can also promote all trending conversations between users in a single place through our recirculation feature.

Then enable your fans to follow content tagged with their favorite team, player or category and give them a personalized feed to serve up the content they’re most interested in.

Engage and activate your audience with a Live Q&A event

Easily host a Live Q&A event with a moderator or a subject matter expert (sports journalist, commentator, athlete, coach, etc.) right on your own website.

Because you can schedule the Live Q&A in advance you’ll have lots of time to promote the event on your website or newsletters, or even have your audience submit questions in advance. It’s a great driver of registrations, engagement and audience building!
