    Gowalla, a location-based social networking service based out of Austin, Texas, created by Alamofire, while not as widely known as Foursquare, is certainly a grand location sharing application.  Users ‘check-in’ at Spots in their local vicinity, either through a dedicated mobile application or through the mobile website.

    Upon checking-in, users may receive items as a bonus and these can be swapped or dropped at Spots. Users become Founders of a spot by dropping an item there. Items form a key feature within the game and each user has a vault into which they can place items they want to keep for

    Today, in a blog post, Gowalla announced a new treat for fans of the National Football League.  Starting this weekend, Gowalla users can check in at any stadium home to one of the NFL’s 32 teams, and earn new, really slick-looking stamps.

    As with other things Gowalla, the stamps are aimed at getting people to visit new spots and check in while at a specific locale.  Further, the stamps provide additional evidence that Gowalla’s stamps and virtual items have been created with extremely grand designs in mind.

    So, for all NFL fans out there, get out to your team’s stadium, check in and earn one of these fantastic looking new stamps.
