According to Nike, the app will allow users to “unlock real-time, personalized experiences activated through the combination of the jersey, a smartphone, and the NikeConnect app”.
Some of these experiences include customized content like pre-game arrival footage, highlight packages, as well as team and player statistics. In addition, fans will also be able to unlock recap videos and GIFs, which they can share externally with friends online.
Fans who tap-in regularly will also be rewarded with exclusive promotions. They include exclusive licensed products, game tickets, and access to the Spotify playlists of their favorite players.
To access these features, download and run NikeConnect on your smartphone, locate the NikeConnect logo (see above) on your jersey and tap your phone on it. Once detected, the app will launch automatically on your device.
