Big Sky Conference and Montana Grizzlies fans will have a new way to enjoy their favorite sports this fall.
The Big Sky on Thursday announced the release of a new mobile application. The app, downloadable for both Android and Apple iOS systems, offers free streaming opportunities of live events, connections to social media and exclusive content.
Big Sky Assistant Commissioner Jon Kasper said the app, developed in conjunction with TopFan, Inc., a leading fan social media application company, will give the conference office a better platform to market league-wide initiatives to fans.
“TopFan has created a Big Sky Conference app that not only will provide access to our live streaming events, but will also allow us ways to engage with our fans,” said Kasper, who is in charge of league media partnerships. “We’re excited to see where we can take this app in the coming months as we integrate exclusive video content, information for our men’s and women’s basketball championships, and other elements.’’
Sports that will be streaming on the app this weekend include football, volleyball and soccer. Men’s and women’s basketball, along with softball and select track and field events will also be available, throughout the season. Fans will also be able to stream the Big Sky’s Men’s-and-Women’s-Basketball Media Days, running Oct. 20-21, on the app.
