Athletics app launches


A fan loyalty app for mobile devices was recently launched by Arkansas Tech University to encourage and reward Tech fans that attend home athletic events.

The app, which is called Fight On Rewards, distributes points when fans check in, through the app, at home athletic events. The points can go toward t-shirts, water bottles, mini footballs, Yeti cups and more.
Fight On Rewards is available to all, but only useful to people interested in Tech sports. The app was primarily developed for Tech students.

Luke Calcatera, athletic event coordinator, had the idea for the app and said its purpose is to “drive student attendance to our athletic events and provide rewards to our great fans.”

In the app, some of the menu options are: a calendar of events, which shows schedules and times of Tech events, a ‘fan cam’ where fans can share pictures while at the game and a social option to see the Tech athletics social media news feed.

The app was created by SuperFanU, a fan loyalty and engagement platform for colleges and universities, according to their website. The app became available on Aug. 22, move-in day for Tech.

Fight On Rewards is available for download on the Apple Store and Google Play Store.
