Leader in Sports Tech Closed Out Another Year of Rapid Growth With a Major Acquisition in Q4; Across its Leading Platform, Monthly Active Users Grew by 23% in 2022 While TeamSnap Surpassed 2M Daily Active Users, a +35% Increase YOY
CHICAGO, Feb. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — TeamSnap, the leading provider of sports management software and the online community for everything youth sports, experienced another year of rapid growth in 2022, with key milestones including the launch of an enhanced TeamSnap for Clubs & Leagues offering, its community impact program, TeamSnap Impact, as well as the acquisition of LeagueSide.
“2022 was another record setting year for TeamSnap’s growth. Our youth sports community hosted nearly 25 million events on our leading platform, which is a +19% YoY increase compared to 2021 and shattered our previous company record,” said Peter Frintzilas, CEO of TeamSnap. “Last year, we also rolled out the new TeamSnap for Clubs & Leagues and many of our partners have told us this enhanced version is further streamlining operations and making life easier – while giving them more time to focus on game day. In addition, in Q4 we announced our acquisition of LeagueSide, which is a hard-earned victory for us, our community and our partners – and is a resounding affirmation of our commitment to our core objectives.”
The acquisition of LeagueSide marked a pivotal point in TeamSnap’s evolution toward becoming the No. 1 technology platform in youth and amateur sports. The on-field sponsorship opportunities now available on TeamSnap’s platform can also help reduce costs for families and youth athletes to participate in sports, furthering TeamSnap’s mission to make youth sports accessible to all. In 2022, these sponsorships impacted more than 2 million youth athletes, driving direct sponsorship funding of more than $4 million to community-based youth sports organizations across the country.
TeamSnap’s Post-Acquisition Reach and Offering
“Our recent survey found that 98% of parents on TeamSnap – a community of more than 25 million logged in participants and coaches, and 11 million families on the field – use our platform to inform decision-making for their family,” said Brian Caulfield, COO of TeamSnap. “This is one example of the impact of our technology, which drives us to go above and beyond, and continue innovating each day.”
