OPIN Develops New Mobile Site for the 2015 Canada Winter Games


The 2015 Canada Winter Games is proud to offer a new mobile website developed in collaboration with OPIN. The new mobile experience will allow users to access information about Canada’s largest multi-sport and cultural event.

In a statement, OPIN CEO Chris Smith said:

“Smartphone technology has opened up new opportunities to personalize large sporting events and tailor the experience to individual fans. We have leveraged that technology so participants and spectators can quickly and easily access the facilities to devote more of their attention and energy on the athletes and the impressive journeys they have taken to get there. It has been a true privilege for us at OPIN to support these Games and everyone taking part.”

The new website, which has been customized for today’s latest smartphones, allows users to purchase tickets, navigate the grounds, and find specific venues and events. The redesign also gives users quick access to scores, metal standings, and player profiles.


In a statement Stuart Ballantyne, CEO of the 2015 Canada Winter Games, said:

“We opted for a mobile site instead of native apps to ensure the information is available to all visitors in a consistent and accessible way. We developed the site with 2015 Games participants and visitors in mind. With the majority of the population utilizing smartphones today, we wanted to give people the opportunity to have easy access to 2015 Games information all in one place, wherever they go, and we’re thrilled to work with OPIN Software on yet another innovative project for the 2015 Canada Winter Games.”

The 2015 Canada Winter Games runs from February 13 to March 1 in Prince George and Northern British Columbia. The venue will host 2,400 athletes, 1,000 coaches and officials, up to 4,500 volunteers, hundreds of media and thousands of visitors.
