Bolton Wanderers Partner With Other Media For New Digital Experience
Bolton Wanderers has announced the appointment of digital agency Other Media and streaming service StreamAMG to deliver a new digital experience for its supporters.
London-based agency Other Media – a respected and prominent player in the sports digital services field – are already in the development stage of creating a state-of-the-art, bespoke website and app for the club.
Stream AMG, will provide the club’s streaming service under the umbrella of ‘Wanderers TV’.
These new digital services will replace those currently used by Bolton Wanderers, including the EFL Digital website and iFollow BWFC.
The recently announced new EFL domestic broadcast deal with Sky Sports will run from the 2024/25 season and will effectively replace the club’s live domestic streaming service from that point forward. However, Wanderers’ audio service will remain in place, as will its live audio-visual arrangements for international audiences.
Neil Hart, Chief Executive Office at Bolton Wanderers, said: “Following a diligent and thorough tender process, we are thrilled to announce the appointment of Other Media and Stream AMG to oversee this exciting and transformational project for the club.
“It has been part of our longer-term communications strategy to deliver an enhanced and more interactive experience for all Wanderers supporters for some time and we are very excited that the process is now well underway.
“We have valued the feedback received from fans about club communications via the Supporter Survey 2023 that was launched earlier this year, and many of those comments and ideas have informed this process we now are undertaking.
“We look forward to showcasing the new offering this summer.”
George Crabb, Managing Director at Other Media, added: “This is an exciting partnership for us to be working with such an iconic club; a club that continues to have such momentum both on and off the pitch.
“This digital overhaul will revitalise the fan experience for Wanderers fans, with the club’s first official app being a key focus of the project.
“The new website and app will deliver the very best of personalised, on-the-go content and functionality and help the club better connect with fans and drive sustainable commercial returns.”
