ParkWhiz Teams Up with Baltimore Ravens to Offer Game-Day Parking Options
Partnership to Provide Fans Guaranteed Parking Options, Improving Fan Experience
August 2, 2012 — Chicago — ParkWhiz, the leading provider of online parking reservations, announced today a partnership with the Baltimore Ravens to offer fans guaranteed parking options before they reach M&T Bank Stadium. The agreement includes ParkWhiz integrated marketing opportunities through the Ravens website and email campaigns aimed toward reaching the tens of thousands of fans who head to the stadium on game-day without a parking permit.
Finding parking on NFL game days that is available, affordable and within walking distance to the stadium can sometimes be a challenge for fans. In 2011, a SportsBusiness Journal poll showed that over 34% of fans wanted teams and facilities to focus on parking to improve the "fan experience." With today's home TV viewing experience at an all-time high, teams are looking for creative ways to reduce pre-game fan frustrations like traffic congestion. Even NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell recently commented: "Our biggest challenge going forward is how do we get people to come to our stadiums because the experience is so great at home."
"The Baltimore Ravens are pleased to partner with ParkWhiz in helping our fans find and reserve guaranteed parking before they leave for the stadium," said Baker Koppelman, Ravens VP of Ticket Sales and Operations. "We always want our fans to have a plan before leaving for our games. By offering our fans the ability to reserve their parking before they reach the stadium keeps game day traffic flowing more efficiently, while providing peace of mind to our loyal fans."
"To add the Baltimore Ravens to our roster of partners is a great endorsement of ParkWhiz's best in class service," said Dean Bravos, VP Sales and Partnerships for ParkWhiz. "Backed by our ParkWhiz Guarantee, our partners have come to know we will protect their fans with a hassle-free parking experience, which is reflected in the growth we've seen in sales and partnerships over the past few years."
