Sports Techie Community ScoreBig On Tickets For Sport, Concerts And Theater Events

ScoreBig provided complementary concert or sports event tickets at ScoreBig.com for me to experience and review their service via a Sports Techie community blog. I was given a $100 voucher to go online and purchase tickets for any sporting events, concerts or shows on the ScoreBig site. I researched the Seattle professional sports calendar and decided on a MLS game between the Sounders FC vs. Philadelphia Union at Century Link Stadium last Saturday night with 38,516 connected fans. The best part besides learning about easy to use ScoreBig technology  and services was the opportunity to attend our 11-month old son’s first pro sport game that made him wide-eyed with excitement the whole time.
