The Jacksonville Armada FC launched its first mobile app, which is now available for smartphones and mobile devices.
All iOS devices as well as Android devices will be capable of downloading and using this new app. To download the app, search Jacksonville Armada FC and the app should appear at the top the screen. And, the app is FREE!
The new Armada FC app features information regarding upcoming matches, team rosters, schedules, standings, ticket information, weather forecasts and social media links. Below I have posted screenshots of the app from my phone, take a gander.
The app will be also feature an interactive aspect during matches at Community First Park. According to the Jacksonville Armada team website, fans will be able to log their vote for the Farah & Farah Man of the Match live during the game.
The app will also feature a Matchday Live section, which will also provide starting line-ups an hour prior to kick off on match days. This Matchday Live section will also feature as current live match stats and updates, matchday contests and promotions, live listening and viewing links and access to special matchday offers available at the team merchandise store.
Community First Park will also be providing free Wi-Fi to fans at every home match during the 2016 North American Soccer League season.
In an interview with the Jacksonville Armada team website, President Steve Livingstone was ecstatic about the new release of the Jacksonville Armada FC app.
“We’re delighted not only to launch our new Armada FC club app but also to provide our supporters with free access to Wi-Fi for their smartphones and tablets inside Community First Park during Armada FC home matches,” Armada FC president, Steve Livingstone, said. “This will allow us to introduce and utilize a number of interactive in-game elements featured on the app including an opportunity for our fans to vote for their Farah & Farah Man of Match in real time.”
According to the Jacksonville Armada team website, the new app and Wi-Fi access will be available for fans to enjoy on a limited and test basis during the Armada’s remaining two preseason home matches against Orlando City SC on Feb. 13 at 6 p.m. and against the New York Red Bulls on Feb. 27 at 6 p.m.
The creation of the app is a fantastic idea. The app increases convenience with regards to ticket purchases and prices, keeps fans up to date regarding Armada news and most importantly expands the Jacksonville Armada brand.
This team is technically only a year old and needs all the help it can get to continue to grow as a team and expand beyond Jacksonville.
As Armada fans, we hope to see our team in Major League Soccer one day. If we as a club can continue to grow and expand with regards to support and financial growth, we could see ourselves in the MLS. It can start with something as simple as an app. Seriously.
As for the app itself, the app is very clean and organized. Menus are not lagging at all and the menus are easy to navigate and find what you are looking for every time. The app seems to encompass all that a fan could want: news, live updates, player bios, information regarding parking and tickets, etc. And as previously mentioned, the app is free, which is awesome. Go get the app Armada fans!
