With the big return of fans to stadiums around the world, Moovit will help fans of ACB Leagues reach games, sustainably
Madrid – September, 2022
ACB is announcing the strategic renewal of its collaboration with Moovit, creator of the popular urban mobility app, to improve the overall fan experience at games. The extension of the agreement follows the ease of COVID restrictions and sharp uptick in fan attendance, and the continued commitment to improving the fan experience.
Moovit’s free iOS, Android, and Web app has guided more than 1.5 billion users in 3,500 cities across 112 countries in getting around town easily using public transportation, with Spain as one of its most active markets. ACB has held the longest active partnership with Moovit in Spain, enabling fans of its 18 basketball clubs to receive real-time public transport information to easily reach arenas across Spain, including step-by-step directions to entrances, and receive service alerts about changes or disruptions to the transport network.
ACB holds fans at the center of its attention and wants them to easily be able to reach the games and fan zones. In the last year alone, the Moovit app sent notifications to half a million locals and tourists across 15 metropolitan areas in Spai. Now, with supporters able to once again travel more freely, ACB and Moovit will help Spanish fans alleviate any worries about arriving or leaving a match, and allow them to travel with greater convenience using Moovit’s accurate and relatable transit information.
Moovit is a global leader in mobility and its expertise and longevity has made it a reference point for many events around the world, from the Olympics to FIBA, and many in between that aim to make the mobility experience easier for fans.
The companies are ensuring that anyone can enjoy a game via Moovit’s accessibility features, such as optimized screen reading for low vision users, TalkBack/VoiceOver capabilities, and wheelchair-accessible routes and stations, as well as optimized menus and buttons for those with hand-motor disabilities.
“We’re excited to extend our partnership with ACB, especially at a time when people are coming together again around the world to enjoy basketball,” said Yovav Meydad, Moovit’s Chief Growth and Marketing Officer. “ACB knows that the fan experience is complex and starts from the moment people begin making their way to the stadium until they safely arrive at home, and we look forward to continuing our work with them.”
Moovit can be downloaded on Google Play and on the App Store.
