Nintendo Fan Network is a defunct 2007 application launched by the formally Nintendo owned Seattle Mariners. The network allowed fans to view progress on the current baseball game and statistics, order food and beverage to be delivered to their seat, as well as play minigames in the 2009 update.

It was initially a DS Download Play application for Nintendo DS exclusively available at one of several kiosks during home games at T-Mobile Park. Initially a paid service available by download through special kiosks in the stadium for US$5[2] (but discounted $30 for 10 baseball games), the service was later made available for free[3] A 2009 update added further ESPN news, PA announcement closed captioning, columns as well as Fan Network Games, including a photo-matching game, baseball trivia and word searches.[4]

The application was later released as a DSiWare application, available for both Nintendo DSi and Nintendo 3DS. After the Nintendo DSi was released, the first 150 visitors to home games were able to rent one for free to experience the Nintendo Fan Network. Unlike the DS Download Play version, it remains on the system after it is installed.
