The social live-streaming platform that enables anyone to become a colour commentator, SportsCastr declared today that the company has shaped an official partnership with WNBPA (Women’s National Basketball Players Association) through REP Worldwide. The WNBPA’s group licensing and player-marketing representation company is set to power live and interactive video content for fans.
WNBPA represents the current women’s professional basketball players in the WNBA. Through this partnership with the WNBPA, all current players will be invited to use SportsCastr to give live commentary across a range of professional and college sports, share personal insights, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg. The company will likewise work with the WNBPA to make prime opportunities for the alliance players around the marquee events.
Speaking about this partnership, Director of Operations for the WNBPA said:
“Fans crave authentic interaction, and through the SportsCastr life-streaming platform, our players have another exciting way to engage fans in real-time. This innovative technology also fits our objective to build unique group licensing opportunities through REP Worldwide that bring fans and players closer.”
SportsCastr, First Platform To Support FanChain
SportsCastr is the first platform to support Fanchain. The organisation is working with teams, leagues and media publishers to add FanChain support, with the point of making it the ubiquitous token within the sports industry.
FanChain is a cryptocurrency developed mainly for the multi-billion-dollar global sports market. FanChain enables SportsCastr users to earn tokens for the participation on the platform, and those tokens would then be used to purchase sports tickets or merchandise, unlock premium player content and send virtual gifts to the players.
As indicated by the information from the company, WNBA players will start using the platform in the 3rd quarter of 2018, with the SportsCastr WNBPA portal launching in Q4.
