Southend United has become one of the first clubs in England to launch a partnership with FanHub - an innovative new app that recognises and rewards fans for their loyalty.
FanHub helps fans to organise their travel to games, save money and earn rewards - and fans of the Shrimpers will be amongst the first to get their hands on the app, which is completely free to download and use.
Both FanHub and Southend United recognise how much fans invest in supporting their team - in terms of money, time and emotion! So we felt it was time to give something back, especially to our most loyal fans who regularly come to support the team at Roots Hall and follow us all over the country.
Through this partnership, our fans will be able to use the FanHub app to
Find the best value train tickets (up to 50% cheaper than the standard fare)
Book the best value hotel rooms for away games
Earn exclusive club rewards based on your fan activity
Exclusive special rewards from our club partners and other brands
FanHub’s unique leaderboard also means that you can see how you compare with other fans, based on the distance you cover in supporting the team, with rewards on offer for those who cover the most ground.
Rhys Ellingham, Head of Commercial at Southend United, commented:
“We’re delighted to partner with FanHub in offering our fans the opportunity to save money on their rail travel and any hotel accommodation, for home and away games. As a club we have huge respect for all fans who come to any of our games, and the primary reason for developing this partnership was to help our supporters to save money. FanHub also enables us to see just how far our fans are travelling, celebrate their commitment, and to shine a light on those who deserve that recognition!”
The partnership kicks off ahead of Southend’s away trip to Sunderland on Saturday 27th October. The FanHub app is completely free to use and we would encourage as many fans as possible to download it from the App store (an Android version will be launched soon).
