It would be good to have collaboration like in mc donals with pokemos go to have portals that give you more items when hacking it in portals that are from mc donals
It would be good if you made normal posts....
Niantic don’t have any Sponsored Portals at the moment for Ingress. We have some Sponsored items.
I don’t think McDonalds would meet any of the Wayfarer Criteria really either. They get 1 ⭐️ votes.
Correct, they are ineligible (even though McDonalds playgrounds might be eligible) and can only get added via sponsorships. However, ING also has ING-exclusive sponsors like ITO or SoftBank. Its very area-based. America and Japan have the most spinsored locations. I only got one permanent sponsored location in my city and thats right in front of the local Niantic office xD
no softbanks in japan left ?
I did a quick Intel check on Tokyo and it shows that Softbank, Ito En, and Y! Mobile portals still exist.
Circle-K use to be a sponsor, so each of their gas stations had a portal. (When the sponsorship discontinued, the portals went away.) So, it has happened, and could happen again.
Hopefully Niantic's marketing department has already contacted McDonald's about a sponsorship. You could always contact McDonald's public relations department, and explain to them how sponsorship would bring customers.
