We are excited to announce our newest NBA customer, the Minnesota Timberwolves and our first WNBA customer the Minnesota Lynx! The teams will be rolling out the VenueNext platform at Target Center this fall with an all new mobile app experience for fans to make their game day more enjoyable.

The Timberwolves CEO Ethan Casson was formerly with the SF 49er’s management and worked with VenueNext during the inception and debut of the platform at Levi’s Stadium in 2014.  He is very excited to bring the cutting-edge technology to Target Center for fans beginning with the 2017-2018 season. The new unified mobile app experience for both teams at Target Center will connect fans to team content, digital ticketing, arena information and more all in one place.

Timberwolves & Lynx CEO Ethan Casson had this to say about the partnership: “We’re thrilled to partner with VenueNext and look forward to rolling out these new state-of-the-art apps to our fans. With 80 percent of our fanbase entering the arena on game day using a mobile device, we wanted to find a way to better serve those individuals through personalized communication and an amplified fan experience. Having been a part of VenueNext’s inception, it’s exciting for me to continue working with this company and implement their technology for Timberwolves and Lynx fans.”

The teams and VenueNext will look to grow the technology capabilities over time and explore ways to add even more functionality to the apps. They are especially excited for opportunities to provide enhanced services for their most valuable fans, about the data our platform generates and the real-time business insights they can glean during game time and beyond to improve operational strategies and decisions.

Stay tuned for more exciting news coming this summer.
