ORLANDO, Fla. – The Orlando Solar Bears have announced that the team’s new mobile app for Apple and Android devices is now available for download in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Due to the team’s previous app company ceasing operations effective January 31, the Solar Bears have partnered with FanMaker, which counts the NHL’s Minnesota Wild and Nashville Predators, along with Florida State University athletics among its clients to develop the team’s new app. The new mobile app can be downloaded at https://solarbearsapp.com or by searching the Apple App Store and/or Google Play Store for the “Orlando Solar Bears Official Mobile App.”
The new app is designed to specifically house the team’s popular Loyalty & Rewards program implemented in the previous version of the Solar Bears app, with easy ways for fans to earn points which can be redeemed for prizes that include player cards, autographed items, merchandise, experiences and more. The app will no longer be used to access the team roster, news or mobile ticketing platform. Fans who wish to access their tickets on their mobile devices can still continue to do so using the Ticketmaster app or through their mobile web browsers.
In order for users to begin using the new app with their points accumulated from the previous version, users will need to download the latest version of the app and use the same e-mail address from their accounts on the old app. Users who previously used their Facebook accounts to login to the old app will be able to login using the e-mail address associated with their Facebook accounts. Users will be prompted to create a new password for their account. Fans who update to the new app will receive 50 Loyalty & Rewards points.
Users will be able to accumulate points through a variety of actions, including attending Solar Bears home games. Fans must now have location services turned on in the app in order to receive points for attending games and other team events, as the prior method of QR codes will no longer be utilized to earn points. Once a user has entered the venue, they will be able to receive points upon opening the app.
Fans will be able to redeem points accrued through the Loyalty & Rewards program on their own within the app. Items redeemed through the points system will be available for pick-up at guest assistance during Solar Bears home games. Any user picking up an item will be required to give their first and last name to the Solar Bears account representative at guest assistance in order to receive their rewards.
Any users experiencing issues with the new Solar Bears mobile app are encouraged to call the Solar Bears executive offices at (407) 951-8200. For more information, please visit orlandosolarbearshockey.com/app.
