IdealSeat, the leading sales and marketing platform driven by artificial intelligence for sports teams, welcomes MLS and International Soccer star, Maurice Edu to our Advisory Board. Maurice will help guide the company’s strategy to better serve sports industry clients, specifically professional soccer teams, with their Fan Intelligence™ data and software.


“Having experienced the issues that IdealSeat look to combat as both a player and fan, it was an easy decision to get involved,” said Maurice. “As we all play our part in helping to grow this sport here in America, IdealSeat helps on the side of fan engagement which is a key component.”

 “Following a successful year adding value to professional sport properties and their fans we are excited to continue our growth into new sports. With the addition of key sports influencers like Mo Edu, our Advisors bring together some of today’s leading minds in sports business, data acquisition, and artificial intelligence” said IdealSeat CEO, Joel Carben.

IdealSeat’s Fan Intelligence™ Platform is the result of acquiring and processing hundreds of millions of data points about venues, teams, and fans. Their artificial intelligence and machine learning results in increased revenue for the team, and data-rich sales leads. In addition, the improved experience for the fans translates directly into deeper loyalty and higher season tickets sales.


This insight gives ticket buyers the ability to explore areas of the stadium that feature sun or shade, family friendly seating, access to unique food or drinks, and seats near other avid fans.
