A new report from proximity marketing firm Proxbook titled “Proximity Marketing in Sports & Events - Q2 2016 Report,” takes an in-depth look at how the major North American sports leagues and franchises are leveraging location aware technology to increase engagement with fans and expand marketing efforts.

According to the report authors, “Beacons and proximity technologies are not only helping to sell more tickets. They are redefining how sports teams communicate with fans, increasing revenue from merchant sales as well as seat upgrades. Proximity technology also opens up brand new sources of income from enabling sponsors to interact with fans and monetize hyper-accurate visitor segments through advertising.
