From exclusive content to podcasts and streaming, the app will bring the club to your fingertips and ensure supporters remain up to date with everything happening at the Stadium of Light.
Developed by Yinzcam, the app will also provide fans with the opportunity to win a £1,000 cash prize during every match throughout the 2020-21 season via the brand-new Sunderland Picks game created by Low6.
The exclusive game allows fans to compete on a peer-vs-peer basis to predict the outcome of match events, including the number of goals, assists, shots on goal, corners and much more.
To play, supporters simply answer a handful of questions ahead of kick-off for a chance to win a share of a £1,000 cash, with the winners determined by a live leaderboard.
Low6 Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Jamie Mitchell, said: The Sunderland AFC app is an exciting new platform for the red and white army. It not only allows them to keep updated with the latest news and content whilst on the move, but also gives fans the chance to pick the outcomes for every match through Sunderland Picks. Rather than trying to beat the bookie, fans will pit their wits against each other with the objective of topping the leaderboard to win cash prizes.”
SAFC’s Chief Executive Officer, Jim Rodwell, added: “We are excited to be releasing our new official mobile application, developed by Yinzcam, and we are delighted to launch our new partnership with Low6. The app is available to supporters worldwide and it provides another way to keep up to date with the club, while also adding a new dimension to their matchday experience through Sunderland Picks. We look forward to developing our relationships with Low6 and Yinzcam over the coming years, and fans can expect new features and promotions throughout the partnership.”
Low6 Co-Founder and CEO, Wayne Stevenson, said: “Low6 are thrilled to be working with Sunderland AFC. It is clear how passionate the supporters are and the new app will allow them to be better engaged with their club. This is another exciting partnership for us as we continue to give more sports fans access to our exclusive games with cash prize-pools.”
Josh Turk, Chief Marketing Officer of Low6, added: “Low6 is seeing exponential growth with clubs and sports franchises globally due to the fan-friendly nature of ‘pickem’ games. We are ecstatic to be working with SAFC and to be launching the Sunderland Picks game. There are no odds to worry about, just make your free picks based on your knowledge and off you go.”
The new Sunderland AFC app is available via the Apple App Store for iOS and Google Play Store for Android.
In addition to the free to enter prize-pool each match, new features will be added, including fixtures with boosted prizes, season-long leaderboards and more.
