FanWide was founded by former Microsoft, Google, Amazon and Oracle engineers with a passion for sports, and the company has four patents pending. The company provides fan club services and technology to help sports organizations create, manage, monetize and generate data from their remote fans .
There are event listing sites like TeamBarFinder.com and GameWatch.info, but FanWide's database is much larger (believed to be the largest sports fan club database in the world) and provides services for sports teams, fan clubs and sports bars.
FanWide differentiates itself by providing end-to-end services to connect and engage sports fans in every city. While there are existing fan clubs that use social networks like Facebook or Meetup to organize their events, FanWide provides them with a digital platform to expand their network, organize events, communicate with local fans, collect and report attendance data, enter contests, and activate food or drink dFiscounts from the event host or team sponsors.
There are a few pro teams that show local events in their apps, but they only support a few events in that team's city. FanWide supports every pro, college and international team in every city, and they can subscribe to our Sports Data Platform to analyze our fan engagement from hundreds of thousands of events. All of FanWide’s services can be integrated within the team’s own website or app.
With FanWide’s scalable cloud platform, if there are enough fans in an area that want to meet up, and a bar that wants to host the event, they will be automatically paired together. Long-term FanWide wants to provide the world's leading platform to automatically match hosts with fans of any interest group, including TV shows, gaming, politics, board games, trivia, and more.
