Finding Big Fights Near You
This weekend's Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder III fight was an epic match for the history books. After hanging on for a grueling 11 rounds Wilder fell in the 11th round, but not without putting the Gypsy King on the mat a few times himself. The lead up to the fight had already been a rollercoaster ride while enduring setbacks, delays, and at least a little bit of drama. If you ventured out to enjoy the show amongst good company at a sports bar or venue, you might've event had your own personal battle finding where to watch and getting through the lines wherever you landed. Whether big boxing or UFC, finding where to watch not just the big fights, but any establishment playing your favorite sports and teams can be a tangled mess of searching all informational channels, online and offline, in a time where technology has modernized just about everything else.
Finding The Match The Current Way
While it may be 2021 and you can find just about anything on the internet, the process for finding, watching, and experiencing your favorite events is still stuck in the past. And if it's not a home team, PPV event, or major sports you're looking for the task can be insurmountable. To find a sports bar, restaurant, or other venue playing the fight, you probably had to go through a personal scavenger hunt involving:
- Google-ing spots that might show the PPV event, and then
- Checking bar websites and social media accounts, should they exist
- Calling and praying the busy staff can get to your call
And then waiting in line at the door on-site to pay cover and secure your spot.
And then finally fighting your way to the bar for each drink while keeping track of the fight and your cards.
Finding The Match The Reveler Way
We here at Reveler know your pain from personal experience, and that’s exactly why we launched with a sports focus in local bar and business-hosted events happening in New York City. In 2021 it seemed like this was one of the remaining industries that could use tech solutions to help not just fans and customers looking for great experiences out of home, but also to assist local businesses in the wake of COVID-19. We're providing a tool to quickly find nearby sports bars, venues, and events that you care about, and offering online reservations and event specials to make it a VIP experience.
Instead, the existing scavenger hunt exercise required for fans to find and attend fights and sport viewings at bars (and vice versa) is starting to look a little easier with our initial launch of Reveler this week. To find the Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder III match, or others, near you, all that's required on Reveler is a quick search:
And on the event page you can see the bar, restaurant, or venue's special amenities, link to profile, and special Reveler-exclusive event packages to get you through the night in addition to booking your spot and paying cover if it's required. As an example, a great partner of ours, Playwright Celtic Pub in Hell's Kitchen, was offering a bucket of beer for $16 for the fight that in midtown Manhattan could easily go for $25 or more.
On November 6th there will be not only the big Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez v Caleb Plant fight in Las Vegas, but also UFC 268: Usman vs. Covington 2 here at Madison Square Garden in New York City. In the meantime we'll be adding more locations to watch near you and organizing event-related inclusive packages, Reveler Specials, to offer fans, so check back to find your fight night spot, whether for pay-per-view events or otherwise.
We have a lot of other ideas and features to help fans, businesses, and local communities, but our biggest source of insight comes from fellow fans like you. If you have product feedback or just want to get in touch, please reach out to us on our Contact page!
