Euroleague Basketball Names Moovit Official Mobility Partner For 2018-19 Season

Fans Attending Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Games Can Get A More-Efficient Ride To And From The Arenas.

Moovit, the world's largest urban mobility data and analytics company and the #1 transit app, has been chosen by Euroleague Basketball as the Official Mobility Partner for the 2018-19 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague season, including the showcase Final Four event in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain, in May 2019. This continues a successful pilot program launched for the playoffs and Final Four games during the 2017-18 season.

The premier basketball competition in Europe, the EuroLeague features 16 teams from nine countries across the continent: Greece, Italy, Turkey, Russia, Spain, Lithuania, Israel, Montenegro, and Germany.

As the EuroLeague's Official Mobility Partner, Moovit will provide fans real-time public transit information for every game at the league's arenas throughout Europe. Both seasoned local transit riders and international fans can take public transit with peace of mind, having the best journey information available at their fingertips, through their smartphone. From being sent real-time updates and having custom searches, EuroLeague fans will have step-by-step directions to each game on Moovit so they can be confident to never miss tip-off.

With more than 250 million users around the world, Moovit provides real-time transit arrivals and directions, trip plans, service alerts and Get Off Alerts through the free smartphone and web app, making traveling via public transit more convenient even for people riding transit to the games, which is the preferred method of transportation for a large percentage of EuroLeague ticket holders. Moovit works in 44 languages making it easier for international fans to travel to the games.

"EuroLeague puts its fans first, including finding the best way to help them get to and from games in cities throughout the league," said Moovit Chief Marketing Officer Yovav Meydad. "Moovit is excited to enhance the game-day experience for basketball fans throughout the entire season, and to be the Official Mobility Partner for yet another high-profile global sporting event."

Moovit is the official transit or mobility partner for more than 100 global sporting and entertainment events and venues.

"We saw Moovit’s dedication to the partnership and to EuroLeague fans last year when they specifically added Montenegro and the city of Podgorica to the app for the basketball events," Roser Queralto, Chief Business Development Officer at Euroleague Basketball, said. "We want to simplify our supporters’ experience in terms of mobility, and we couldn’t think of a better partner than Moovit to help us do this."
