"The app will be a great addition for fans and reduce the clubs environmental impact, so its a win all round."
Kevin Roberts, ITEC Cornwall Account Director
5th November 2019 - Cornish Pirates fans will be able to access all the important match day information at the touch of a button thanks to the launch of a new app.
The club has partnered with technology managed service provider ITEC to develop a new app for spectators, which will act as the go-to place for the latest news and match day programme, including the team line up, directions and stadium information. Designed to replace the match day programme, the interactive app will be simple to use and the best way for supporters to access the full range of Pirates content, in addition to being more environmentally conscious.
The latest collaboration follows ITEC’s renewed sponsorship of the Cornish Pirates’ Hospitality and Entertainment Marquee for the fourth consecutive year and they have sourced a new electronic screen for this season.
They also provide business IT support in the Cornish Pirates head office and sourced a new scoreboard for this season. The company is helping with the forthcoming development of the new Stadium for Cornwall as part of their commitment to South West sport and communities; an iconic new stadium development which will be the new home of the Pirates.
Kevin Roberts, ITEC Cornwall Account Director said: “As long-time supporters of the Cornish Pirates, we’re thrilled to be working with them on such an exciting project. The app will be a great addition for fans and reduce the club’s environmental impact, so it’s a win all round.”
Robin James, Cornish Pirates Chief Operating Officer added: “It’s great to have ITEC on board to help deliver this new service to our fans. It will make it easier for spectators to find out all the latest news from the club on home and away matches, and hopefully encourage new supporters to join in. This will be a free to purchase application for all Apple and Android devices with the only ‘in app’ purchases coming via ticket sales. We are intent on lowering our environmental impact and this is just another big step forward.”
ITEC has a strong presence in the sports industry having recently partnered with PTI, a leading technology consulting firm specialising in entertainment venues. This enables them to provide comprehensive technology managed services for sports teams and premium sports venues across the UK.
The app is available on the App store and the Android version will be available soon.
