SAN JOSE, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes announced today that the club has partnered with FanKave to provide fans with an interaction platform both inside and outside of Avaya Stadium.
FanKave, a messaging-based fan engagement platform, is enabling the Earthquakes to bring their fans together inside an interactive community. The platform offers the opportunity for fans to engage with the Quakes brand through live chat, aggregated content, real-time social media feeds, and exclusive interaction with players, coaches, and other MLS personalities.
“The San Jose Earthquakes have strived to become one of the most technologically advanced sports organizations,” said Earthquakes President Dave Kaval. “The partnership with FanKave is another leap forward for the club in its efforts to provide fans with a wealth of social media interaction, both with the team and with each other."
The #Quakes74 FanKave is available on the free mobile app, offering fans the ability to chat live during games and interact with players through organized AMA (Ask Me Anything) sessions. FanKave will later be accessible from the official Quakes website, making it available on both desktop and mobile.
“By creating a digital hub for fans to connect and engage, we are enabling teams to build true fan communities,” said Raja Gopal, Co-founder, FanKave.
A sport technology startup located in Mountain View, FanKave was built by three co-founders, and friends, who are passionate sports fans. The founding team has multiple years of experience in creating and launching successful products in both startups and large tech companies. The FanKave app is available for free on iPhone and Android devices and will be available on the web in its next release.
