FanThreeSixty offers data-driven solutions for every touchpoint throughout the fan journey. Founded by owners and executives of Sporting Club and MLS team Sporting Kansas City, we transform the way teams act on their fan data.

Sporting Kansas City has more than fresh jerseys this season. Available ahead of the season opener on Thursday, the team announced an all-new official app, giving fans direct access to their favorite MLS club, turning every day into matchday.

The new Sporting app, available for download today, puts utility, community, connectivity and exclusivity right in the hands of fans. From mobile tickets and an enhanced stadium map to personalized content and faster access to Sporting news, it’s more than an app; it’s an experience.

Fans can now log in to or sign up with the Sporting app using their SeatGeek account—a first for the mobile-focused ticket platform. This lets them access, scan or transfer tickets for upcoming Sporting games, giving fans a seamless matchday experience while removing the need for paper tickets (and ICYMI, the club is all in on this—view the recent announcement that it's going paperless this year).

Once downloaded, fans can update preferences to receive custom in-venue offers, in-app promotions and customized matchday experiences right from the app. This results in a hyper-personalized app experience because everything—from team content and news to in-app promotions—is tailored to the individual. Plus, the new app comes with a fresh design and layout that simplifies navigation, making it easier than ever to find relevant Sporting content, events and information.

Whether at home or in Children’s Mercy Park, fans will never miss a moment on the field with live stats and scores delivered right to their homescreen. And attendees, from first-timers to die hard Sporting fans, will receive in-venue offers based on what’s new for that specific fan—from pre-game events to updated food and beverage offerings near them (because your taste buds deserve a break from the same chicken fingers).
