KickApps has forged a partnership with Infinity Pro Sports to bring social media and online video experiences to professional and college team and league websites. The first joint customer is the legendary basketball team Harlem Globetrotters.
Social media offers sports teams and leagues a unique opportunity to engage fans around without the geographical boundaries. Using the KickApps Social Media Platform, Infinity Pro Sports will be able to easily create and manage branded social networks for their clients that feature photo and video uploading and sharing, blogging and discussion forums. Through this, teams and league can deliver an immersive online environment where fans can meet other fans and collectively share their passion for their favorite teams, and create a new marketing and revenue channel for ticket and merchandise sales.
The KickApps Social Media Platform currently powers social media websites for many of the worldâ€™s largest professional and amateur sports teams and leagues, including the Phoenix Sunsâ€™ PlanetOrange.net, New Orleans Hornets, New York Knicks, Phoenix Mercury, San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks and New York Rangers.
