TeamSnap Acquires Sponsorship Platform LeagueSide

TeamSnap is the leader in sports management software and an online community for all things youth sports. Today, it announced the acquisition of LeagueSide, America’s most popular community sports sponsorship platform.

TeamSnap will launch a new offering to brands through this acquisition. It will also provide sponsorship opportunities for the over 19,000 organizations that rely upon TeamSnap’s Clubs & Leagues platform.

“We have listened to brands and partners looking for ways to connect in-person with youth sports communities, as well as youth sports organizations interested in sponsorship opportunities – and this is our answer,” said Peter Frintzilas, CEO of TeamSnap. “Like LeagueSide, TeamSnap at its core is a company focused on improving the lives of youth athletes and their families while making sports accessible to all. We are excited to welcome these forward-thinking innovators to our team.”

TeamSnap has partnered with LeagueSide to bring its innovative sponsorship solutions to its leading platform. This will allow brands to have direct access to both digital and on-field sponsorship opportunities through one source.

According to Wintergreen Research, this will allow the company to expand its reach in youth sports, which is a $19.2billion market in the U.S.

The company will also offer on-field sponsorship opportunities for sports organizations that use TeamSnap’s Clubs & Leagues solution. This can help make sports more affordable in an era of rising costs and fees.

Multi-channel solutions will allow brands to connect with youth sports communities in new ways.

TeamSnap’s post-acquisition reach and offering

  • Nearly 40,000 new sports organizations join the platform’s network.
  • Digital access to 25,000,000 logged-in users and authenticated coaches and families.
  • Sponsorship access for 11 million families in the field

These sponsorship opportunities on TeamSnap can help to reduce the cost for youth athletes and families to take part in sports. This is in line with both LeagueSide and TeamSnap’s mission to make youth sports accessible to all.
