Foursquare Adding Promoted Venue And Badge For Super Bowl

Posted Feb 3, 2011

Geo-location check-in service Foursquare is adding a “promoted trending venue” and badge redemption for the Super Bowl. Foursquare is making this venue available for all of their users, meaning that it is not actually a real venue — it is an event.

?We thought the NFL would be the perfect partner to try this out for the first time since there?s such a huge sense of community around Super Bowl viewing,? said Foursquare spokeswoman Erin Gleason. Foursquare is not making any money from this deal.

If you shout the name of the team you are rooting for, you will get a badge for that team — either a Packers badge or a Steelers badge. You will also get a redemption code that would give you a 20% discount on merchandise.
