NEW YORK, July 27, 2015 - The New York Mets, in conjunction with Experience (expapp.com), the award-winning fan experience technology company, announced today a special promotion sponsored by Citi and available exclusively to Citi Cardholders, providing them with early access and preferred pricing on seat upgrades at Citi Field for the remainder of the 2015 season. Citi Cardholders will receive advanced access to seat upgrade inventory thirty minutes before the first pitch and will receive a seventy-five percent discount on upgrades purchased as part of the program.
Through Experience's mobile technology embedded within the MLB.com Ballpark® app, all Mets fans are eligible to receive promotional credit that can be applied to seat upgrades throughout the season. These promotions reward fans who "check-in" using MLB.com Ballpark and include a five-dollar credit on seat upgrades available for fans upon their first check-in to the ballpark. And, for the first purchase only, an additional five-dollar credit for any fan that buys their Mets tickets through Mets.com is also available.
"Season after season, we continue to find ways to leverage Experience's technology to reach our audience in all-new ways," said Mets Executive Vice President & Chief Revenue Officer Lou DePaoli. "With fans using their smartphones while at the ballpark, it makes perfect sense to use mobile to provide in-stadium benefits."
"Building on the success of our partnership with the Mets and their marquee sponsor Citi, we are excited to offer Citi Cardholders new opportunities to add excitement to their day at the ballpark," noted Experience President Ben Ackerman. "Experience's technology gives teams and sponsors a variety of ways to engage fans and provides a platform for interaction that drives revenue and increases the lifetime value of the fan."
