Sports Tech Live

All your Sports Tech news in one place, covering topics like AR/VR, Data Analytics, eSports, Live Streaming, Sports Betting, Wearables, etc.

Hey Sports Tech Fans,
Techstars Toronto will be having their demo day on July 1st. Sign ups below.
So there is a race on to 1,000 subscribers between this newsletter and the Reddit community.
Right now there are 855 people subscribed to this newsletter from all walks of life in the sports world, from teams, leagues, federations, finance, sponsors, politics among others.
Over on Reddit there are 709 subscribers to r/sports_tech subreddit and closing ground rapidly.
The growth on both platforms has been purely organic as I haven’t had the time or the resources to promote this community.
It would be great if you could share either or both communities with someone who is interested in sports, esports, betting, steaming, hardware, fitness etc. to help boost the numbers.

https://www.reddit.com/r/Sports_Tech/
If I was a betting man I would be betting on Reddit getting to 1k first as it has a massive community of users there that are finding the Sports Tech feed.
Have a great sporting weekend,
Will
