We’re happy to announce that we’ve partnered with CLUBELEVEN for the 2023 soccer calendar year, as part of our philosophy to grow independent artistic entities in sports. CLUBELEVEN has for several years been a community for players, fans, creators to tell the untold stories of soccer in North America. They transcend borders through the love of the game. They specialise in long-form written pieces intertwined with some of the best sports photography to shape incredibly riveting and meaningful content.
During the World Cup, they executed an emotional series which captured the culture and people around different nationalities, and how these manifested themselves in celebrating a global soccer fest. North America was built on immigration and CLUBELEVEN showcased this by communicating with locals for different games, and capturing the raw emotions of that culture on camera.
ScorePlay gave them an easy way to not only to ingest all the photos directly into their platform using FTP, but to share these assets so fans could relive their best memories. The beauty of having these shots captured is that during the game a fan can enjoy the moment, and then relive them later with high-quality photography. ScorePlay’s shareable links were shared on CLUBELEVEN's Instagram to give the fans immediate access and the ability to download the pictures as they pleased. Win, win, win.
Since we started ScorePlay, we saw the value we bring to small, medium and large sports organisations with a modern media infrastructure. This value is more than monetary, and providing our software in the form of a partnership to independent organisations like CLUBELEVEN is important to us. ScorePlay is funding the artists and photographers behind the scenes with a tool that gives them opportunities for growth within the sport.
The centralisation, classification and distribution of sports media assets needs to be consolidated on a single platform for a seamless real-time experience free of manual bottlenecks. Long has the sports media landscape relied on a variety of tools that crowd creative teams and disrupt a logical efficient workflow (from PhotoShelter, Dropbox or Newsbridge for storage, and Greenfly for distribution).
The new generation of sports fans demand social-media-ready content in real-time as they consume, and having an all-in-one solution allows sports organisations to be reactive, versatile and adept in their content strategy. ScorePlay automates the centralisation, classification and distribution of assets with AI. A media hub built for the sports industry. Every user can easily browse the photos or videos they need and incorporate them seamlessly into whatever story they are crafting. Storytelling simplified, collaborative photo and video sharing made easy.
