ARLINGTON, Va. – Marymount University Athletics has recently signed with SuperFan, a leading fan loyalty and engagement company, to launch a new mobile app that will allow fans to earn points based on events and activities that they attend and 'check-in' to. The points can then be used to earn prizes and exclusive experiences from Marymount University.
"We are very excited to take this next step with Marymount Athletics and our fan base," says Kyle Gurganious, Director of Athletic Communications at Marymount. "We believe we have a great fan base as is, but hope that this application helps make our Saint family even larger. From the prizes and rewards to simply just staying up to date on all things Marymount athletics, we are looking forward to using this new asset to stay more connected with our fans."
The app provides other information for fans including athletic team schedules, athletic news and an opportunity to share photos through a 'fan cam.' There's a leaderboard to fuel some friendly competition amongst fans, while the top leader at the end of the academic year will receive the ultimate exclusive package of apparel, gear and more. The Social module allows users to stay up to date with all the various social media accounts.
Marymount Athletics can be downloaded for free at either the Apple Store or Google Play online stores.
Marymount Athletics selected SuperFan as its loyalty program partner because of its diverse experience with over 450 high schools and colleges/universities across the country. The company is leading the market in developing innovative platforms that allow the communication and marketing between students/fans and schools to be more engaging and efficient.

"The fan experience is so important to engaging students, alumni and fans, so we look forward to great collaboration with lots of fun outcomes in the near future."
