(April 18) — Fans who attended Saturday’s York Revolution Fan Fest were the first to download the new York Revolution app—and to take advantage of the new Revolution Rewards program it powers.
Launched on both the Apple Store and the Google Play Store, the app gives fans access to the team’s new loyalty program, exclusive content, and access to team and roster news, social media feeds, and promotional details.
Fans can now earn points by attending games, making concessions purchases, and entering special codes made available following game actions such as walk-off wins, grand slams, and other special moments.
“The initial response on Saturday was fantastic,” said Revolution President Eric Menzer. “Over 400 people have downloaded the app already.”
When fans download the app they can also see all of the available rewards and the point values necessary to claim them, as well as an introductory video showing them all the features of the rewards program and the app and how to use them.
Available rewards range from tickets, hot dogs, sodas, and team store discounts to unique experiences like private stadium tours and batting practice on the field.
“We’ll continue to add rewards as the season goes on,” said Menzer. “In some cases, we may offer some one-time opportunities, such as a meet-and-greet with a visiting celebrity.”
The app also gives users exclusive access to periodic unique discounts and promotions on a game-by-game basis delivered through push notifications.
“We are always looking for ways to provide what we call ‘Best Day Evers”’ at PeoplesBank Park,” said Menzer. “This is another way to do that. We’re really excited by how it turned out, and we can’t wait for our customers to start taking advantage of it.”
