League Launches New Basketball Tournament Fan App


ELMHURST, Ill. – The Summit League, in partnership with the Sioux Falls Sports Authority, has teamed with From Now On to launch a new basketball championships fan app. The app, currently available for both Apple and Android, is the perfect companion piece to follow The Summit League's premier event.

By downloading the app at its launch, app users will have access to an exclusive presale code for single-session tickets for the 2018 tournament. App users will also be entered into a random drawing to win two lower-level tournament tickets.

Presented by Yellow Jacket Landscaping, fans can customize their app content to receive push notifications from their favorite tournament and events. Exclusive offers, including ticket information and restaurant specials, will be available leading up to and throughout the tournament. Updates and contest announcements from the Fan Fest will be included during the March 3-4 weekend event. Fans can also learn more about each team and player in the tournament with finger-tip accessible player bios.

 "We are excited about providing a first-rate fan experience with our new tournament app," said Summit League Assistant Commissioner for Communications David Brauer. "This is truly next-level for The Summit League Basketball Championships and provides fans with the ability to instantly access information that will help enhance the event experience. From Now On is an industry leader in this area, and we look forward to our partnership, especially with the debut this season."

"It has been a pleasure collaborating with both staffs at the Summit League and the Sioux Falls Sports Authority to create an incredible experience for Summit League Basketball fans," said From Now On CEO Sue Thaden.
