"FanConnect has been a fantastic addition to our sponsorship asset mix," says Sergio del Prado, Vice President of Corporate Sponsorships for the San Diego Padres.  "From the first year we brought it in our partners have loved it and demand for it has grown exponentially.  It's also a great price point, has clean and has eye catching graphics, and we can target different segments of our audience as needed.  We are also able to update the artwork ourselves and get up and running almost instantly - a huge plus to working with the FanConnect team."

FanConnect content can be found on virtually every screen in the ballpark, from clubs and suites, to concourses, concessions, clubhouses, and specialty areas.
