AUSTIN, Texas — The University of Texas rolled out a new layout and features on its "Texas Longhorns mobile app" for fans in attendance at Longhorns sporting events across the Forty Acres.
With the app, UT fans can manage game tickets, order concessions and merchandise remotely in advance, participate in trivia, polling and other games and more.
"Finding innovative ways to interact with Longhorn Nation on their smartphones is a strategic priority for Texas Athletics," said Executive Senior Associate Athletics Director for External Affairs Drew Martin. "In addition to being the easiest way for fans to manage their tickets, the new Texas Longhorns mobile app will provide countless new opportunities for digital fan engagement inside and outside of our venues."
Here is a detailed list of the new features on the app available to utilize on game days:
- Access the official Texas Football Season Guide beginning later this week
- View the official Texas Football Gameday Program for each game a few days prior to kickoff. The digital programs replace the printed versions handed out in previous seasons and will be available for each home and away game

- Receive special promotions and coupons exclusive to fans attending Texas Longhorns home events
