If you’re like me and love all types of sports, you most probably have a bunch of apps to stay connected with your favourite teams and sports.
Let me introduce you to Sportlobster.com, the sports social network.
Four months after its launch at Wembley Stadium, it has secured a further $1,000,000 of funding to coincide with its September 2013 iPhone app launch.
Sportlobster is the first one-stop shop for sports fans, with the site bringing news, rumours, photos and videos, events scheduling, predictions and blogs into one online platform.
Co-founder and COO, Arron Shepherd, adds: “The recent $1,000,000 is necessary because of the rate at which we’re growing. When we launched there were only three of us, now we’re a busy team of nearly 20 programmers and marketing professionals and this is all before we bring in a large commercial team in 2014 once confident our user experience is optimised.”
Shepherd and Meikle, aged 26 and 28 respectively, are committed to improving the user experience of the site and Sportlobster has identified the need for an app for its users as currently (47%) visit the site via smartphone.
Meikle says: “The app is going to dramatically improve the experience of sports fans both in the way they receive relevant information and how they interact with fellow fans around the world.”
One APP designed as a one-stop-shop to deliver all your sporting needs and desires, all in one location. Why hasn’t someone done this before?
Sportlobster have spent a lot of time on their design and you can tell from their simple custom graphics and they have had the use in mind all the way with a fully functional APP with great social integration built in.
Sportlobster go on to say, “We are constantly evolving and we work hard every day to improve the user experience. Our biggest ambassadors are our users and we are convinced the leap in quality experienced with the launch of the app will ensure word spreads fast and user numbers rocket as a result.”
Sportlobster’s vision to change the way people connect through sport is quickly being realised. With continuous improvement and burgeoning user numbers, the sport social network is destined to become a permanent fixture on the phones and desktops of sports fans worldwide.
