(Columbia, SC) - South Carolina Athletics has launched a new social-centric mobile application that enhances the already dynamic experience at our athletic venues. The Gamecocks have joined forces with IMG and SportsLabs to develop the South Carolina Gameday App to keep fans connected to the action while at the game or watching from home. Currently launched for football, the Gameday App will also be available soon for South Carolina men's basketball, women's basketball, and baseball.
"We are pleased to partner with SportsLabs in bringing Gamecock fans a one-of-a-kind gameday companion app that we hope will further enhance the passion and excitement of gameday this fall," said Chad Cleveland, AVP: Digital Content and Strategic Partnerships at IMG College.
The South Carolina Gameday App is packed with robust social, on-campus and stadium features that enhance the gameday experience by delivering:
- Free live game audio
- Real-time Instagram and Twitter feeds from the team and fans
- The official gameday fan guide with key times, events, and need-to-know information including stadium, traffic, and parking information to plan the day
- Live Conference and Top 25 scores, real-time stats
- Seat upgrades and experience opportunities, such as a visit from Cocky, exclusively for season ticket holders via Gameday Experiences
- Opt-in alerts for weather updates, pre-game events, play-by-play information and more
The South Carolina Gameday App is a free download in both Apple App Store and Android Google Play.
