23 January 2017

Focus group for new football fan fitness app...


Salford University students are holding a focus group at the Crown Oil Arena on Thursday 26th January from 5.30pm to 7.30pm to discuss the development of a fitness app for football fans. 

Refreshments will be provided and the first 10 fans to sign up will receive a £10 Amazon Gift Voucher!

To reserve your place email sarah.ashton@rochdaleafc.co.uk.

Alex Fenton, designer of Footy Fit and lecturer in digital business from the University of Salford Business School, said: “Working with Rochdale AFC and fans to design the new app with a user centered design approach is crucial for the project and our research. We had designed this fitness app and were thinking about how to get as many people as possible involved. This is a great opportunity for us to work with great community focused clubs like Rochdale AFC and set a wide range of student projects on this real world project.

“By signing up Rochdale AFC, hopefully we can do that. Fans will be able to download the app in the team colours, with official badges and specially created content, and compete with each other to see who is the fittest and who is making the most progress in getting fitter. 

“This is a really fun way to help football fans get fit this winter. It is yet another great example of the kind of work we do at Salford, working directly with industry professionals such as Rochdale AFC to try to get the best results we can and create real world impact.”
