Teams rely on Sports Team Management apps to organize and communicate during their season – sharing rosters, schedules and more. These apps drive extremely high engagement with players & parents checking game times, setting player availability, chatting and sharing photos on average 4 times per day.
As usage grows, Sports Team Management Apps become an extremely valuable and targeted channel to promote & sell equipment and apparel to players and parent.
In fact – TeamSnap, one of the available Team Apps, has partnered with Amazon to aggressively promote Amazon equipment purchases to their 15 Million+ users, and now TeamSnap is competing with branded Apparel & Uniform ordering options. Their objective is for teams is to “SKIP THE TRIP TO THE STORE AND GEAR UP VIA AMAZON”.
And TeamSnap isn’t the only company trying to own this channel – over the past year, Dick’s has acquired Team Management app Gamechanger in efforts to connect their brand and offers to teams.
So what does this mean for local Sports Stores?
Local Sporting Good Stores have two predominate options available:
#1 Allow TeamSnap/Amazon & Dick’s to Own this Channel.
