Football Whispers are delighted to announce that we have been nominated in two categories at the 2017 Sports Technology Awards: ‘Outstanding Start-up’ and ‘Best Technology for Fan Engagement’.
Nominations were sent in from all over the world, with over 70 sports represented by some of the world’s leading organisations — including BBC Sport, BT Sport and Samsung — so to be acknowledged for the work we’ve done is a huge achievement.
It's been an incredible whirlwind of a year for the FW team. The launch of Football Whispers TV, as well as the development of partnerships with the likes of Sky Sports, The Sun and ESPN, have been particular highlights.
In the ‘Outstanding Start-up’ category we’re up against Cogran Systems, Cryoaction Cryotherapy, ForceDecks, InCrowd and Sports Performance Tracking, while the other nominees for the ‘Best Technology for Fan Engagement’ category are Autography, Bleacher Report, Draft Kings, NBA’s Rapid Replay and On Rewind.
Launched in 2014, the Sports Technology Awards are judged by an experienced panel of industry experts, with this year’s awards being held at the Roundhouse in Camden on 4th May.
Previous winners of STA gongs include the Wimbledon tennis championship, the BBC Get Inspired initiative and Cricket Australia.
