Home of Australia’s premier men’s and women’s football competitions, the A-Leagues has appointed leading audience engagement MarTech SaaS platform Komo Technologies as its fan engagement technology supplier. The technology will see the A-Leagues deepen connections with fans and reach new audiences through interactive fan engagement campaigns.
What does Komo Technologies bring to A Leagues?
The engagement tools and campaigns will roll out across the KEEPUP, the A-Leagues’ one-stop-shop website and native app for football news and content, as well as the A-Leagues clubs’ own digital properties. The fans will also enjoy an extra level of fan engagement live at games through the Komo big-screen integrations which include live fan data feeds.
The A-Leagues’ digital hub will provide immersive opportunities for fans to experience the game through branded, interactive content created using Komo’s gamification tools and over 50 plug and play games, including live polls, trivia, quizzes, live predictor games, instant win games and competitions, as well as social and rich media integrations and rewards.
Each team also has access to the Komo technology and can create their own team-branded fan hub and leverage commercial opportunities. The ability to deliver engaging campaigns and value for fans, sponsors and brand partners across the League’s digital network will enable the A-Leagues to expand its community through leveraging rich media tools, interactive content, prizes, and rewards as users participate in fun games and competitions.
In addition, the product gives the A-Leagues a scalable, enterprise solution backed by enterprise-level customer support, with the ability to leverage Komo’s expertise to commercialise the digital assets the A-Leagues and their teams create on the Komo platform.
