Basketball Champions League and Moovit partner to enhance fans’ mobility experience during Final Four

BILBAO (Spain) - The Basketball Champions League today announced Moovit, an Intel company, a leading Mobility as a Service (MaaS) solutions provider and creator of the #1 urban mobility app, as its Official Mobility Application Partner for the 2022 Basketball Champions League Final Four games. This partnership will help fans of the four finalist teams arrive at the Bilbao Arena. By using the free Moovit app, supporters will receive detailed information on how to reach the arena, and be guided to the dedicated entrances, as well as the Fan Zone in the heart of the city, via public and shared transport. The mobility tools made by Moovit are available in 45 languages.

By downloading Moovit’s free iOS or Android app, or using Moovit’s Web App, users can find accurate information about all mobility options available in Bilbao, including bus, train, metro, light rail, ferry, trams, and bike sharing. The collaboration will alleviate any worries about arriving or leaving a game, and allow fans to travel around Bilbao with greater ease and convenience using Moovit’s accurate and reliable transit information.

BCL fans using Moovit will have several features available to them to ensure they have the most direct route and never miss the tip-off, including: real-time arrival information for buses and trains, a Live Directions feature with Get Off Alerts for step-by-step guidance, and Service Alerts to avoid disruptions on lines and plan accordingly.

Benjamin Gauthier, Basketball Champions League Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We are thrilled to partner with Moovit for our 2022 Final Four in Bilbao, the pinnacle event of our season. Our fans are at the centre of our attention, and we are glad to collaborate with Moovit to allow them to easily reach us. Their global and leading experience in mobility will allow all our fans, media and guests to conveniently reach the Bilbao Arena, our new and centrally located Fan Zone, and all the main locations of our event.”

Yovav Meydad, Moovit’s Chief Growth and Marketing Officer said: “Finally, people around the globe can come together again to enjoy FIBA’s Champions League Final Four championship games. The International Basketball Federation knows that the fan experience is complex — it starts from the moment supporters begin making their way to the stadium and ends when they safely arrive at home. We’re excited that the Federation has selected Moovit and its global experience to make travel in Bilbao convenient and more sustainable for fans.”
