About us

about us
Digital Audiences Unlocked
We have built a digitally native platform, powered by AI, that is focused on simplifying the identification, activation and monetization of digital sports assets.

This is done by providing real time tracking, valuation and packaging of rights holder content across their digital and social media channels.

Using this intelligence, we provide brands with a simple mechanism for purchasing the inventory that matches their campaign needs.

Our digital commercial toolkit makes it easier for brands to connect with sports fans and helps rights holders unlock new digital revenues.

Research has shown that Brands are increasingly focusing their advertising spend on digital – up 56% YOY in 2021.

Sports content has consistently proved to be a more highly engaged medium than digital advertising – 2500% higher than regular social media ads.

For rights holders this challenge presents itself in difficulties understanding and leveraging the true value of their digital channels. Brands similarly face challenges in accessing sports fans and the engagement they bring. Digital content is the perfect solution as it is more flexible, less time consuming and more efficient.
