SeatGeek Partners with FanFeedr to Offer Locally Relevant Tickets to Sports Fans
July 7, 2010 – SeatGeek (https://seatgeek.com), the only site that forecasts how sports and concert ticket prices move on the secondary market, announced a partnership with FanFeedr, a real-time personalized sports feed aggregator that provides ‘Your Sports Fix’. The partnership will give sports fans an easy way to keep track of, and purchase tickets for, upcoming games in their area. FanFeedr’s integration of SeatGeek’s localized ticketing widget onto their site, allows fans browsing their MLB feed in New York, for example, to simultaneously view upcoming tickets for the Yankees with ticket prices and forecasts. Ty Ahmad-Taylor, CEO and Founder of FanFeedr, said “With SeatGeek’s real-time ticketing solution and FanFeedr’s real-time aggregation, we are able to provide fans in any city with the best options for getting local tickets for their favorite teams.”
SeatGeek serves the sports and concert ticketing space by providing users with intelligence on when to buy tickets on the secondary market. They aggregate tickets from all the major secondary markets like StubHub, RazorGator, etc., and use a proprietary algorithm to forecast how those prices are going to move. The SeatGeek Widget combines all these benefits into a robust and relevant tool for websites and blogs who can in turn offer additional value to their users by surfacing upcoming events in their area and unique forecasting content. Website owners can customize the widget for a specific team, artist, or league and the widget will geo-locate to offer tickets only for the user’s location.
FanFeedr’s implementation brings in ticketing information for all the major sports leagues on to the respective FanFeedr pages and the widget does the rest by showing the upcoming events for each league in the geo-located area along with ticket prices and whether prices are forecasted to go up or down. If prices are forecasted to go up, users can come to SeatGeek to buy the tickets and save money in the process. According to Russ D’Souza, Co-Founder of SeatGeek, “this partnership is great for both SeatGeek and FanFeedr, but more importantly, it is great for sports fans. Now fans can keep tabs of their favorite teams all in one place with the integration of personalized feeds from FanFeedr and ticket forecasts from SeatGeek.”
