UNCP is one of a handful of NCAA Division II schools to partner with SuperFanU to launch a fan loyalty rewards app.
Fans can unlock rewards and exclusive offers with their points.
Also, students can keep track of their accumulated points and see how they measure up to their peers with a campus-wide leaderboard.
Can’t make it to the game? Athletic Communications is adding a new feature that allows fans to live stream each athletic event. Additionally, audio links were added.
To stay updated on athletic news and events, users receive weekly push notifications from the app.
Notifications and location services must be activated on users’ phones to receive these communications.
