One lucky fan to play and win a signed Golden Tate football
SEATTLE, Wash. – December 27, 2013
The Seahawks have a strong shot at going to the Super Bowl this year, and their fans have a fun new way to help them get there. Seahawks fans have already broken records for being the loudest fans in the stadium. Now they can be the loudest fans in social media too – and win prizes.
A new free app for Apple and Android phones and tablets enables fans to take and share photos and compete to be the top 12th Man and win a Golden Tate autographed football.
Anyone who has the technology can play. Download the GooseChase scavenger hunt app here and start playing and competing in GameTime for Hawk Fans in less than five minutes.
Whether you’re already a dedicated Hawks fan or you haven’t yet joined the Seahawks’ winning season, now is the time to kick off your own game. Play at the stadium or from your own big screen. The game will capture thousands of photos that can then be shared on social media. Fans can crush the competing team by turning on the games’ Facebook and Twitter options and being the loudest fans both at the game and in social media.
John Chen, CEO and founder, Geoteaming, developed the game to give back to the Seahawks community. In a year when fans (and even Terry Bradshaw) predict the Seahawks to win the Super Bowl, Chen wants to capture that Hawks Fan spirit. He says the best way to do so is by sharing fun and photos. “This game can stand up to the loudness of the Hawks Fan,” says Chen.
Chen knows from experience that the GooseChase app can scale. Geoteaming has built other location-based games for corporate events and battle tested it with thousands of simultaneous users. At one large event, teams submitted more than 5,500 photos in just two hours.
People who played other GooseChase games said the three most fun aspects of this app are:
· Sharing great photos.
· The Feed gives Facebook-like status updates as players complete missions.
· Ranking gives a real-time high score list. It tells people how they rank against other players at any time.
Being a gamification expert, Chen says he knows these elements make a fun and engaging game, especially for sports fans who are competitive. “While not all of us can be NFL football players, any of us can compete and win in this game. Competitive sports fans love this,” says Chen. “With this game, you can tell everyone that the Seahawks will win.”
Download the free app and start playing immediately. Available on an Apple or Android tablet or phone. Simply download the GooseChase app and select Geoteaming’s GameTime for Hawk Fans. The game will last as long as the Seahawks season lasts. More information about the GameTime For Hawks Fans game here. Game rules and full list of prizes here.
