Detroit Pistons offering seat upgrades through app

Headline Goes Here

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - It's 7:30 p.m. You're at tonight's Detroit Pistons game against the Charlotte Bobcats. You're sitting in the 200-level, but you see some open seats in the 100-level.

Tonight -- you can use the official Detroit Pistons Mobile App to upgrade your seats in the arena.

The Pistons are the second team to provide the seat upgrade option on their mobile app available for download in the iTunes App Store and on Google Play, or by visiting, helping fans -- no matter where they are -- stay connected with the team.

The Pistons' digital team has partnered with Pogoseat, a mobile-ticketing application, that enables fans to upgrade their seats before and during the game from their smartphones. Pogoseat displays a map of all the seats available in the venue, and users can sign in through Facebook, Twitter or email, to purchase an upgraded seat. The upgraded ticket receipt is sent directly to the user's smartphone, allowing them to provide digital confirmation for arena ushers.

Pogoseat representatives will be at the Power Hour in the North Pavilion, instructing Pistons app users on the seat upgrade option. 

In addition to the seat upgrade option, the latest Pistons app upgrade also offers users a great second screen experience with the game's shot clock, the live in-game box score, play-by-play and player stats. Parking and arena maps with concessions and bathroom locations are also included. And Pistons Entertainment Team bios and wallpapers are now available.
