The Parramatta Eels are all over this daily deals malarkey like footie shorts that have just gone through a very hot wash.
In an NRL first, the team will offer fans “unprecedented access” to discounted local business services and activities via the brand-spanking new EelsDeals, a dedicated daily deals platform.
Accessible via Facebook, email, Twitter, the Eels iPhone App and word of mouth, each day will see a local business deal promoted to Parramatta club fans.
Partnering with Sportzvalue, a developer of innovative multi-media platforms, EelsDeals is designed to benefit both the Eels and the broader Parramatta community.
Parramatta Eels chief executive Paul Osbourne said the club is all over digital advancement.
“The Eels continue to pave the way in the NRL when it comes to digital innovation,” he said.
“EelsDeals… creates an opportunity for the fans to help their club in return for receiving a great deal.”
“It’s a win-win.”
“When a Parra fan decides to buy one of the great daily deals on EelsDeals, they can do so with the knowledge they are directly helping their team.”
For local businesses, EelsDeals equals exposure sans upfront costs. A percentage of sales goes to the club.
Local biz that have already jumped onboard include Crust Pizza, Sanity Music, Code Red Laser, Clown Town, Nut n Fancy and Firehouse restaurant.
