CHICAGO– August 6, 2018 – Today, STATS, the worldwide leader in sports data and intelligence, announced a strategic partnership to bring STATS’ data to Rabble’s fan engagement platform, connecting sports fans watching games in bars and restaurants nationwide.
Rabble’s sports bar app helps fans find the best bars to watch their favorite teams, while its Rabble for Business platform helps bars drive more of those fans to their venues. Users of the Rabble app will be connected to STATS’ live data, helping them keep track of scores and schedules for every game being played nationally. In addition, bar owners can use the Rabble app to keep up with exciting games and potentially change the channel for their patrons.
“The Rabble app provides a great opportunity for fans to connect with STATS’ industry-leading sports data,” said Lisa Ackerman, Senior Vice President of Customer Success at STATS. “Sports fans are passionate about their teams and want to find the best local bar to watch each game. Working with Rabble, we can connect with sports fans who care about their teams and where they watch.”
For consumers, Rabble features verified team bar locations, discount offers at participating bars, and real-time information about games currently airing. For businesses, Rabble provides an advertising platform to acquire new fans and grow revenue through offers and fan behavior data reports.
“Out of home sports viewership is increasing rapidly, especially among millennials and younger audiences. Fans are searching their phones for the best places to watch games,” said Meghan Gruszynski, Vice President of Product Management at Rabble. “STATS’ data is so powerful in terms of what it does for our apps and partner bars. Bars can select the games they’re showing on TV by a team or by an individual game in a single click. Those games show up immediately in the app so fans know exactly what’s happening in real time.”
