Sportamix, the innovative sports social network site, gets its own red-carpet spotlight on Saturday, Feb. 23, at the exclusive Celebrity Connected Marketing Event on the day before the world’s most-watched entertainment event, the 91st Academy Awards.
Over 100 of the Hollywood’s most recognizable names in show business and media will be introduced to Sportamix, a website that connects athletes of all ages and abilities to coaches, agents and recruiters in order to help them navigate their way through the world of sports. Already, more than 500,000 members from 185 countries signed up for advice and connections on this unique website, and every day more than 20,000 new members are joining Sportamix.
Sportamix debuted earlier this year with an impressive team including a board of advisors made up of world-class professionals with years of experience working at Fortune 500 companies in the sports, marketing, high-tech and entertainment industries. There is no cost to create a profile for an athlete in any of more than 100 sports, from chess to football, golf to martial arts. Sportamix pays special attention to women, kids, Paralympics competitors that are often overlooked by other platforms.
Earlier this month, Sportamix appeared in full display at Leigh Steinberg’s 32nd Annual Super Bowl Party, an A-list even attended by more than 2,000 people including Seth DeValve (Cleveland Browns), Aaron Jones (Green Bay Packers), Patrick Mahomes (Kansas City Chiefs), Pro Football Hall of Fame running back Eric Dickerson, ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski, actor Derrick Worsley (Nashville, Taken 3) and sports commentator Tony Bruno, among others.
Legendary agent Steinberg, who is the newly-named president of Sportamix, says, “Athletes need to connect with trainers, club sports, colleges, coaches, pro teams, agents, marketers, and medical professionals. Coaches need to recruit athletes and fill their rosters. Sportamix provides a novel solution to the need to find opportunity.”
As the celebrities will witness first-hand, Sportamix has established a platform that allows individuals and institutions to post what they are looking for, Steinberg explains. “Through tailored filters, the exact qualifications or resume can specifically advertise what their need is. For the first time, the multi-level world of sports can find a directory which simplifies their search.”
Also, the prestigious University of Southern California Marshall School of Business has adopted Sportamix as a graduate project where their top MBA marketing students will deploy business strategies for the site. Sportamix joins companies such as Boeing, Disney, Mattel, Sony and Kaiser Permanente in the world’s oldest MBA program as part of the renown IBEAR Program.
