Saints Enhance Ballpark Experience With Brand New AppST. PAUL, MN May 26, 2016
Going to a St. Paul Saints game at CHS Field is about more than just baseball, it’s about the entire experience. From the promotions, to the unique characters interacting with the fans, to the unique areas like the craft beer corner around the ballpark, Saints games are like no other. The Saints, along with Bleachr, have created a unique in ballpark app that brings the action to them including never having to wait in line at the concession stands again.
The St. Paul Saints app, available on both iOS and Android in the App Store, and the Google Play Store, brings the Saints to your fingertips whether you’re at CHS Field or following the team from a remote desert island. While at the ballpark fans can order select food and beverage items directly from their seat and have it delivered by one of the Saints friendly food and beverage staff. On the menu is a large variety of beers, hard alcohol, non-alcoholic beverages (soda, water, Gatorade and lemonade), and various snacks like kettle corn, peanuts, and sunflower seeds. Just decide what you’re in the mood for and in just minutes you’ll be enjoying your favorite food and drink item without having missed a moment of the action (function only available at CHS Field and will not work when you are on the deserted island).
The St. Paul Saints app will also allow fans to interact with other fans around the ballpark. Go head-to-head in trivia contests, unique fan challenges and earn points by participating each game as you make your way up the leaderboard and become the ultimate Saints fan. Also, take those Facebook “friends” and make them your real life friends. The Saints app will inform you when all those people you’ve been friends with on Facebook since 2004, but haven’t seen since you were in high school in 1994, are at the game.
“We are thrilled to be working with Bleachr to make this groundbreaking technology available to our fans,” said Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Derek Sharrer. “This app provides our guests with an amazing opportunity to interact with the team and have access to exclusive services, while also creating a platform for them to interact with each other.”
