Team GB has partnered with Visa to roll out a new interactive fan app for PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games to engage audiences across the UK.

Visa will leverage Monterosa’s Sport Companion app to power live interaction with fans whilst Team GB competes at the 2018 PyeongChang.

The app which is available free of cost provides fans with all the latest news and medal standings from the competition, the event schedule highlighting all Team GB activity.

British Olympic Association, commercial Director Tim Ellerton said: “We are constantly looking at ways to engage with our fans and the app that Visa created during Rio 2016 was a huge success, which provided brilliant up to the second updates and information. Working with Monterosa we’re excited to develop and extend the scope of what the app can offer to fans and it is great to be able to share the app today in the build-up to PyeongChang 2018.”

Suzy Brown, UK and Ireland marketing director at Visa, said: “The vision we have at Visa is to be the best way to pay and be paid, for everyone, everywhere, so are very aware that more and more people are embracing mobile technology for everything from paying for their daily commute to getting live updates on their favourite sports. The app is great for anyone wanting to follow Team GB in PyeongChang and will bring supporters closer to the action in real time. We particularly urge fans to download the app to follow the progress of Team Visa athletes Billy Morgan and Elise Christie who will be aiming to win in South Korea.”

Ben Barker, commercial director, Monterosa said: “We are really excited to be working with the BOA and Visa to provide a leap forward in the fan experience for what we all hope will be a ground-breaking Olympic Winter Games for Team GB. Utilising our Sports Fan Companion app product, we’ll be letting Team GB fans get under the skin of the athletes, schedule their daily viewing and create really sharable experiences”.

The Team GB: Winter Games app is now available for free download on mobile and tablet from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
