Dallas Wings Overview

The Dallas Wings are a professional women's basketball team based in Arlington, Texas. Founded in 2016, they are a member of the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) and play in the Western Conference. The Wings are coached by Vickie Johnson and their home arena is the College Park Center. The team has seen a number of great players, including All-Stars Skylar Diggins-Smith and Liz Cambage, and other notable players such as Odyssey Sims, Alisha Gray, and Kaela Davis.

Challenges faced

The Wings had an extensive weekly workload of digital assets that needed to be organised and found quickly, from arrival shots, to training, pre-game and match photos and videos, so they decided to upgrade their digital strategy to be more versatile online. They sought out a digital asset management platform that could provide quick access and searchability of all their content, ranging from photos to videos and giving them the ability to deliver the right content to their highly engaged fanbase. Additionally, they needed it to automate content delivery to athletes, and wanted their partners to be tagged as well. ScorePlay was their go-to solution that provided a comprehensive, all-in-one package, without having to juggle several different tools.
