ScorePlay edging closet to being a true game-changer

AI digital asset manager ScorePlay revealed its successful $5 million seed round funding. The Lisbon-based company is poised to reshape the sports media landscape, meeting the evolving demands of fans in our ever-connected digital world.

Gone are the days of passive sports consumption. ScorePlay recognizes the insatiable hunger of modern sports enthusiasts for real-time, authentic content directly from their favorite clubs, leagues, and competitions. To address this shift, ScorePlay has developed an all-in-one AI-powered media operating system, ushering sports organizations into a new era of fan-centric content delivery.

With an innovative SaaS model, ScorePlay automates digital asset indexation, management, and distribution using cutting-edge AI technology for facial, logo, and text recognition. The platform effortlessly tags every asset with relevant metadata, from athletes and partners to match contexts and stadium locations. This streamlined process saves time and empowers creative teams to unlock the full potential of their media assets, crafting captivating stories that resonate with fans.

The results speak for themselves, with an astounding 1000% revenue growth in 2022 and more than 120 sports organizations already onboarded in under two years. Notably, over 10,000 athletes, including prominent figures like Lionel Messi and Megan Rapinoe, benefit from the ScorePlay Athlete App, automatically receiving their content to build their personal brands like never before.

The significance of this funding round cannot be overstated, as it's led by heavyweight investors, including Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian’s Seven Seven Six, NBA All-Star Kevin Durant, Manchester United's Raphaël Varane, and Philadelphia Union's Alejandro Bedoya. The support from tech luminaries like Renaud Visage and Alex Yazdi further solidifies ScorePlay's position as a leading media solution in the sports industry.

This latest infusion of $5 million brings ScorePlay's total funding to an impressive $6.5 million. With this newfound capital, ScorePlay is poised for rapid expansion, growing its tech team, strengthening its New York presence, and cementing its position as the ultimate go-to platform for sports media.
