TeamSnap has acquired Mojo Sports in a combination of two sports media platforms in the ever-growing youth sports technology space.
“The Mojo team has built the leading consumer-focused digital experience in youth sports,” said Peter Frintzilas, chief executive officer of TeamSnap. “Their professional league and club partnerships, video streaming platform and coach development tools will add compelling new value to our TeamSnap community. This is a defining moment for TeamSnap and for youth sports.”
Mojo’s platform includes live streaming, scoring and highlights, as well as personalized experiences for players. It also has interactive practice plans and activities with expert advice, how-tos, Q&A interviews and stories from coaches and athletes.
“I’m excited for the impact this partnership will have on youth sports and families everywhere,” said Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson, a Mojo investor and advisor. “As a parent, volunteer, and coach, I’m deeply connected to our mission at Mojo, which is to enhance the youth sports experience by making coaching and parenting easier and more fun for everyone involved. With the size, scale, and resources of TeamSnap, the combined new platform will be unstoppable in helping us reach that goal.”
The youth sports market has an estimated 60 million athletes across roughly two million school, community and club teams in more than 150,000 leagues.
“Together we can create truly unforgettable experiences for players, families, fans and sports organizations,” said Ben Sherwood, founder and chief executive officer of Mojo. “TeamSnap is poised to win the youth sports market in the U.S. and around the world.”
