The University of Cincinnati department of athletics recently partnered with PlusBlue Solutions to provide mobile power solutions to Bearcats fans during home football games in 2013.
For a nominal fee, fans will be able to rent a portable charging device from a Nippert Stadium kiosk at the remaining home football games. Customers will be able to return to their seats with the charging device and not be tethered to an outlet or charging station.
The kiosks will be located on Sheakley Lawn pregame and behind section 126 on the West concourse during games.
The Cincinnati based startup company was founded to help solve the problem of insufficient battery life of smartphones and tablets. PlusBlue Solutions uses the tagline: Mobile Power Now.
"PlusBlue Solutions is thrilled to be partnering with Bearcats Athletics," company founder Mike Bagby said. "It's a partnership that makes sense, as sporting venues and sports fans are a major target for our business. We enjoy helping our customers stay connected so that they can focus on the things that are most important and enjoyable to them. We don't want anyone to suffer from disconnection anxiety."
