Front Office Sports Announces Inaugural List of Best Venues

Ten venues make list created in collaboration with Sports Innovation Lab

NEW YORK – Front Office Sports (FOS), the leading multi-platform media and news organization covering the business of sports, today released its list of the 10 best venues in sports. This list was created in collaboration with Sports Innovation Lab to rank venues home to either professional, collegiate, or minor league sports.

Venues across the industry submitted applications and responded to questions about their technologies, mobile app features, food options/dietary inclusivity, transportation offerings, mixed-use functionality, and overall venue design, and the responses were scored accordingly. The venues with the best fan experience were selected following this competitive process.

“In a landscape where innovation and fan experience reign supreme, these venues’ commitment to their guests through investing in cutting-edge venue technology and fan experience has propelled them into our top ten list,” said Adam White, CEO and Founder of Front Office Sports. “Each venue recognized showcases a dedication to enhancing the spectator experience and elevating the standard for sports venues.”

“Front Office Sports’ Best Venue Winners award removes subjectivity from ranking the best places to catch a game,” said Josh Walker, CEO and Co-Founder of Sports Innovation Lab. “This definitive list is derived from our proprietary methodology that scores and ranks venues based on factors identified by some of the leading experts in the industry. As teams look to evolve their in-game experience to drive attendance, they can look to the venues on this list for ways to cater to the future fan.”
