YinzCam, Kansas City Chiefs Launch Refreshing Augmented Reality Promotion



KANSAS CITY, Mo., Sept. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Kansas City Chiefs fans have an entertaining new way to celebrate their team's history this season thanks to an augmented reality promotion created in collaboration with YinzCam, the mobile app and AR developer based in Pittsburgh.

The limited edition, 16-ounce Chiefs Coca-Cola cans can be purchased at grocery stores and gas stations throughout Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska.

The "Coca-Cola Refreshing Moments in Chiefs History" campaign invites fans to purchase a special edition, Chiefs-branded Coca-Cola can, which can then be scanned by the built-in camera within the team's official mobile app, triggering an AR video board to appear above the can. Fans can then choose from a selection of historic plays, turning the physical can clockwise to rewind, or counter clockwise to fast forward the virtual videos.

Additionally, fans who watch closely will spot six different codes embedded within the highlights, which can be entered in the Chiefs Kingdom Rewards program inside the team's app for a chance to win a trip for two to the Chiefs-Cowboys game in Dallas on Nov. 5, 2017.

The limited edition, 16-ounce Chiefs Coca-Cola cans can be purchased at grocery stores and gas stations throughout Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska.

"We're excited to team up with our long-term partner Coca-Cola for this campaign that features a new interactive and innovative way for fans to engage in the Chiefs Mobile app," Chiefs President Mark Donovan said. "Thanks to our partners at YinzCam, we are using new and exciting technology to offer our fans this unique experience."

YinzCam is the premier mobile app developer in professional team sports, having built 24 NFL club apps, in addition to more than 100 apps for teams, leagues, venues and events around the world, including Super Bowl XLIX.

"As augmented reality has continued to increase in popularity, we have continued to build out our in-house development team, to the point that AR is now one of our core competencies," CEO and Founder of YinzCam, Priya Narasimhan said. "We are proud of our collaboration with the Chiefs to develop this unique partner activation, that not only gives Coca-Cola a dynamic branding opportunity, but creates an entertaining and memorable AR experience for Kansas City fans."
