After two successful seasons of making it easy for University of Michigan football fans to reserve parking and tailgating spaces for home games, Park n Party® has joined with Notre Dame-based GameDay Parking to bring the same convenience to Notre Dame football fans.
Park n Party offers parking lot owners and tailgaters the same benefits ticket sellers and buyers have had for years – an online marketplace. Through www.parknparty.com, lot owners can make their parking and tailgating spaces and other amenities available to tailgaters who want to conveniently reserve them well before the big game. With GameDay Parking, Park n Party is now making this benefit available to the Notre Dame market.
GameDay Parking (www.gamedayparkingapps.com) provides mobile iPhone apps that identify parking places for football fans at Notre Dame, Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue and, as of August 2013, Wisconsin. These apps help fans select their parking spot based on price, distance to the stadium, and amenities.
Combining Park n Party's online reservation system with GameDay Parking's mobile presence was a natural fit. Just in time for the start of the 2013 Notre Dame football season, lot owners in South Bend can have their parking and tailgating spaces listed online. Park n Party and GameDay Parking systems are risk-free, attract lots of fans, and make things easier, more predictable, and more profitable for both lot owners and fans on game day.
John Ross, GameDay Parking's chief and a Notre Dame graduate, joined with Park n Party because of the huge demand for an easy-to-use online parking and tailgating reservation system for Notre Dame home football games. "Park n Party's system is perfect for the Notre Dame market. Fans will love how it helps to take the uncertainty out of game day parking, and parking lot owners will really appreciate how it makes their lives easier. In the end, it makes game day better for everyone."
By visiting www.parknparty.com, lot owners can learn how to put their parking and tailgating spaces and other amenities such as tents, grills, and access to bathrooms online for reservation on a game-by-game or full-season basis. Any spots that aren’t reserved prior to a game can be sold the “old-fashioned-way” on game day.
“Nobody has ever put together a service like Park n Party, and we’re confident the idea will catch on like wildfire among fans in town for Notre Dame football,” said Jason Kapica, Co-Founder of Park n Party. “We expect to be all over the country very soon.”
In addition to South Bend, Park n Party serves Ann Arbor and expects to add more college campuses and other cities soon. Targets for expansion include Detroit and East Lansing, Columbus, Madison, and the rest of the Big 10 Conference. Park n Party is not just about football. Participating lot owners can list spaces,and amenities for any event.
