COMPANY OVERVIEW:

 

Bleachr elevates the sports fan experience with cutting-edge mobile app technology. The Bleachr App’s

new CrowdVIEW LIVE platform is next-level for the next-generation and is designed to engage and

monetize remote fans during the pandemic and beyond. CrowdVIEW LIVE is like Clubhouse on steroids,

giving fans a chance to join face-to-face if they want to go toe-to-toe with other fans and sports

commentators. It has a configurable center stage to host everything from live streamed games,

alternative POV cams, videos, and free-to-play games like Bracket Battle and the predictive prop bets

game Points Streak Live, with patented re-pick technology to let fans keep their brackets and streaks

intact.

 

In addition to producing customized white-label sports apps for global clients, Bleachr’s popular

TennisONE App serves as the Official App of the Miami Open, the World Tennis Conference, and

numerous other ATP and WTA tournaments. Fast live scores, interactive draws, stats, and dynamic

content are just a few of the features that make it the global go-to tennis app for all-things tennis.

In 2020, Bleachr was named one of the Business Journal’s “2020 Best Places to Work” and Hype Sports

Innovation Global Virtual Accelerator’s company “Most Likely to Scale.” Bleachr was also awarded the

Tennis Industry Association’s “2020 Innovation Challenge Award” for its TennisONE App. Bleachr is

currently shortlisted as a finalist for the 2021 Sports Tech Awards in three categories, Best App, Best

Digital Technology, and Best Use of Technology by a Broadcaster.
