Gowalla Wars: SEC Football Stadiums

A couple of months ago I did a rundown of where SEC football stadiums stand in terms of Foursquare checkins. It’s only right that I do the same for the stadiums as Gowalla spots, especially considering I’m a much bigger user of Gowalla than Foursquare these days.

These rundowns are meant to be benchmarks to see what kind of activity the stadiums see this fall now that checkins are becoming a bigger deal.

As with Foursquare, the clear Gowalla leader right now is Florida’s Ben Hill Griffith Stadium, which has attracted 40 Gowalla users and 293 total checkins. Arkansas’ Razorback Stadium actually has more unique visitors (42), but only a total of 51 checkins. Obviously Florida students using Gowalla enjoy marking their passes by their stadium. And I don’t blame them – it’s a nice place.

Ole Miss’ Vaught-Hemingway Stadium is bringing up the rear, with just three unique visitors (21 checkins). Mississippi State’s Davis Wade Stadium has seen just eight visitors, with nobody checking in more than once. Somebody created two versions of Kentucky’s Commonwealth Stadium, so its five (each) visitors and 20 (or 19) checkins could be off by just a bit.

And as far as Foursquare vs. Gowalla goes, only Arkansas has a higher usage rate for Gowalla (by a big margin – 42 Gowalla users to nine Foursquare users). That comparison will also be interesting to track this fall.
