How Fanzia Solves the "Developing League Dilemma"



Developing leagues today have the same problem which seems unsolvable. With a tight small league budget, leagues officials often lack the resources required to invest in the improvement of their live streams necessary to scale audience viewership which can be monetized by sponsored segments during live matches. This leaves leagues with only one option to generate revenue, charge players to play in the league.


The reality is the players want to be paid! The quality talent will then look for other opportunities to play local sports, leaving the league with a thin talent pool to select. This means, no dunks, alley-oops, bicycle kicks, or hits out of the park. With little to no remarkable highlights to post, it’s hard to get audience, friends of athletes, and live spectators to share those remarkable moments which is necessary to gain social media traction. Layups do not go viral!


Low quality live streams combined with bad marketing strategy causes:

  1. Low audience engagement and growth

  2. Diminishing advertiser demand for sponsorship sales

  3. Thin talent pool who choose join other more popular organizations

  4. Wasted marketing spend on unconverting results

We call this, the "Developing League Dilemma". Fractured media coverage of developing leagues discourages sponsorships required to invest in professional broadcasting and marketing to achieve audience growth.


It isn't about fancy lights and sounds. It's about providing easily accessible, high-quality broadcasts in multiple angles with highlight reels, at a reasonable price, without putting unnecessary obstacles in the way for leagues that are understaffed. It's about giving athletes the right exposure while giving fans what they want then finding new ways to reach them through their devices It's also about bridging the gap between local viewers and an international audience of fans, scouts, coaches and fostering closer relationships between clubs.


Real-time footage allows us to watch the game in greater details and more angles, getting a better look of ice than the players. It enables organizations to engage their audiences better. And it can be placed directly on live platforms like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.
