I'm excited about the launch of Sportpost! Its one of the first European sports sites that combines awesome videos, news, celeb blog posts, and an obsessive community. If it sounds like a lot, it is - and they've executed wonderfully. There's a lot of competition in the US, with Yardbarker and Fan Nation coming to mind. However, a community sports site with heavy fan involvement in the UK or Europe is definately lacking.
But the biggest twist is the superstar bloggers they've signed up, including exclusive deals from athletes including England rugby international James Haskell, 2010 Cheltenham Gold Cup runner-up, renowned jockey A.P. McCoy and England footballer, West Ham striker Carlton Cole. The list goes on, and it's very impressive. They also have some great HD video content, and a very impressive amount of sports news content (powered from the NewsCred Platform!). Fans can customize their Sportpost page, set up all the topics they're interested in, and then get a custom news feed with multimedia news content and social media.
Congratulations to Charlie, Peter and the team for getting this off the ground. I have no doubt this is going to be a massive success, and we're excited to be partnering with them to allow fans to ‘share your sport with the world!’
