Two months after our last Sport Buff round-up, we reflect on what has been an outstanding period for the fan engagement trailblazers.
Sport Buff have been very busy over the last couple of months, both on and off your screens. Let’s start with off it.
After a triple nomination, Sport Buff were named ‘Best Fan Engagement Technology’ at the 2021 Sports Technology Awards! Other winners at the awards included Chelsea, UEFA and WWE, so it’s fair to say that Sport Buff were in good company.
Benn Achilleas, co-founder and CEO, reflected: “The award validates our investment and commitment to delivering a best-in-class engagement solution to both sport and esports broadcasters.
“We’re excited by the ever-increasing interest in gamification and fan engagement and are proud to be market leaders in such an exciting field.”
The award came in the midst of a host of new partnerships. Sport Buff went live with MLS over two watch-alongs, including El Tráfico, with Twitch streamers AA9Skillz and runthefutmarket. Across the pond, Sport Buff and Ata Football covered the finales of Europe’s top leagues and were along for the ride as Chelsea, Barcelona and PSG’s lifted their respective titles.
Sport Buff and partypoker announced their new project, with four of the poker broadcaster’s Twitch channels being Buffed in four different languages. Talking of different languages, BBL’s Copa Rakin and NBB‘s Play-Offs, both live on Twitch, had Sport Buff’s extension live over the top.
