Following a trial pre-Christmas, Glentoran FC is very pleased to have joined with Belfast company ULNK to introduce technology to the Bet McLean Oval to improve the match day experience for fans. The new #Glenshub will be available at our home match with Coleraine this evening. It will allow Glentoran fans to connect with their favourite team like never before.
ULNK provides match day technology that unlocks the power of sport to create immersive experiences and transforms the way people experience live sport by delivering stadium wide engagement all in one tap or scan on your phone! Their innovative tech – which supporters can access through their mobile phones – opens up a host of fan-friendly content from match highlights, team news, club merchandise and more including exclusive content.
ULNK founder and Glentoran Seconds Goalkeeper Coach Simon Steele explains that as a massive Irish League fan he wants this product to conjure up what we would want in a match day experience by allowing fans to interact with the technology as they sit in the stands while also giving exposure to the club’s social media channels as fans get an interactive experience which they haven’t had before.
Simon told www.glentoran.com:
“We asked fans what they wanted on #Glenshub to add to the matchday experience. The answers were clear:
- To be involved
- To be entertained
- To be informed
So we delivered exactly that.”
This innovative technology links direct to our club media channels to provide access to:
- Team Information
- Connect direct to the club’s social media channels
- Player of the match Vote
- Highlights of previous games
- Access to the Glentoran Superstore and to club offers
- Sponsorship Opportunities
- And much more to come ….
