7 Advantages of GoFan for Leagues

Managing athletics for a league requires immense work before, during, and after every event. Scheduling, gate management, and financial reporting are just a few of the many key elements of hosting successful league matchups.

Leagues like the Southeastern Conference in Michigan and the Big West League in California have transformed how they manage events with GoFan to save significant time and elevate the fan experience.

In this blog, we’ll explore the top seven ways GoFan can make life easier for leagues, their member schools, and their communities.

1. Improved Efficiency

Providing an efficient event process for fans is crucial, especially for schools in a league that play each other often. 

It can be confusing for fans to visit several different ticketing sites for home or away games. Without any league-wide cohesion in the ticket-purchasing process, fans can often lose track of where to buy their tickets.

With GoFan, events can be displayed at the league level on a dedicated webpage. Fans visit one place to find upcoming events and get tickets quickly. Event data will automatically sync from top scheduling platforms to save time and improve accuracy.

2. Consistent Fan Experience

When the entire league uses the same platform, fans can enjoy a consistent experience throughout the season. It can be tiresome for fans to use different systems and follow different processes at each school.

For the most personalized experience, fans can create an account with GoFan and favorite their team for quick access to upcoming events and tickets.

3. Fee Presentation

Leagues have the option to hide their ticket fees with GoFan. For example, instead of offering a $5 ticket with a $1 fee, a league school could offer a ticket for $6 and absorb the fee.

League-wide use of GoFan could also allow for uniform ticket prices across every game, so fans know exactly what to expect when buying tickets.

4. League Sports Pass

Schools can also offer a league-wide sports pass for athletic events. These passes can include all sports or be limited to a single sport.

With GoFan, passes are time-based and not geolocated to simplify the process. Fans can use their passes at a league event at any participating school.

Gate workers will simply take a look at the pass to confirm it’s valid and tap to redeem. Offering a league pass will further simplify the ticketing process and generate more revenue.

5. Concessions Sales

Beyond ticketing, schools can use GoFan Box Office to accept digital payments for concessions for faster checkouts, shorter lines, and higher sales.

Schools complete orders and accept payments with iOS devices and card readers. Fans can pay with a credit or debit card, Apple Pay, or Google Pay.

With GoFan, schools gain insights into their community’s buying patterns, reconcile finances quickly, and access intuitive reports.

6. Fundraising

Along with ticketing and concessions, schools can raise funds with GoFan in one platform. Schools can make it easy for their fans to contribute to meaningful causes while discovering and enjoying their favorite events.

Leagues also have the opportunity to create a league-wide fundraiser for all member schools and drive community engagement.

7. Streaming

Leagues host numerous athletic events throughout the year, and keeping track of the ticketed and streaming events can be overwhelming for schools and fans alike.

With HQ, schools can now manage all their ticketed and streaming events in one platform. Set up events once, test camera status, check ticket sales and viewership performance, and more - all in one place.

Fans can easily access events in person and online so they never miss a moment of any league matchup.

Next Steps

League schools have a unique opportunity to enjoy the benefits of a digital event experience individually and collectively.
