foursquare is a new location based social networking tool available on iPhones, Android & Blackberry phones. It allows people to “check-in” to venues they frequent like cafes, bars & restaurants. These check-ins are reported back to your friends.
How can foursquare be useful to sports fans? As you check in you get to see other people also at the venue. This will enable more fans to connect via foursquare. Connecting fans is what drives Sports Geek! Connected fans have a greater voice and can help great online atmosphere that we know exists at game venues. Foursquare does a great job connecting the off-line world with the online world and will help more sports fans meet up at games.
Additionally you can send your check-in updates to Twitter to keep your tweeps informed just like this.

Take a look at Etihad Stadium if you want to find Melbourne Victory fans. Imagine the check-ins at the MCG once the footy season kicks off.
I'm looking forward to checking-in at the Staples Center, Dallas Cowboys Stadium & Madison Square Garden on the Sports Geek Study Trip.
