Sports Illustrated has come out with the launch of a new sports app which is called FanNation. This latest app is designed keeping those in mind who cannot be in front of their TV screens during all their favorite sporting events. This app lets users assemble their own fantasy team to have an alternate experience of their favorite sport.
FanNation will enable users to pick their own team of players and also go head to head with their friends. This can be done on the basis of the results of the games of that particular day. Another good feature about this app is that users can also place their money on certain bets and the fees they pay will become a revenue source for Sports Illustrated. This app will initially give users the option of playing baseball initially but plans to expand the number of games, later including hockey, basketball and even football.
FanNation will be bundled up with the feature of SI content which is expected to be promoted and marketed on more of the digital properties. This app has been optimized for a mobile phone as it comes with daily matchups for people to enjoy every day when they come home from a hard day at work.
