Emory Eagles App!

E-Team has designed an app that allows you the most information with the least effort, as well as multiple chances to win free clothing, fan gear, even technology, all rep’ing your favorite school! The app provides information on each Emory team including the players, statistics, and more. It also has information on all the events you want to go to that are in the WoodPEC, and when you attend these events you can check in at the venue with the app and points will be added to your account. You can redeem these points for a prize by asking any E-Team staff member at an event to press the “redeem” button for you and the prize is yours! It is that easy! And do not forget to upload pictures of yourself at the event on the Fan Cam to make your friends jealous of your new swag.


Downloading is almost as easy as it is to get free stuff while using it: go to the app store on your phone, search “Emory Eagles”, and there you go! You are now ready to start earning points! Check out Events on the app, there is probably one coming up soon!
