Ann Arbor, MI, October 13, 2016 --( Fantelope is excited to work with the University of Detroit Mercy in launching its new fan competition and engagement platform. As a founding member of Fantelope, University of Detroit Mercy and the Detroit Titans are the first college or university to use Fantelope to engage fans and reward fans for being awesome!

"We are thrilled to become the first school to partner with Fantelope and look forward to providing a great opportunity for all of our fans to claim prizes," said Director of Athletic Marketing & Promotions Jeremiah Hergott.

With Fantelope, Detroit Titans fans can follow their favorite teams, spar with friends and earn recognition and prizes for all they do to support the University of Detroit Mercy.
