ScoreMore is a sports tech startup at the convergence of sport, technology, entertainment and media. This mobile software solution hosted in the cloud transforms fan to fan engagement, all while generating incremental sponsorship and advertising revenue for teams, leagues and associations. Since October, I have been the Director of Business Development at ScoreMore, increasing brand awareness while setting up and participating in meetings with the Fortune 100, professional and college sports organizations, global technology companies, and investors. Last month, my colleagues attended the 2016 Fanalyse European Summit for Fan Engagement and Fan Experience at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. At this inaugural international business of sport event they participated with talks regarding the need for more fan-to-fan technologies enabling fans to connect with each other as well as drive revenue through increased digital reach for teams, sponsors and advertisers. The Sports Techie community blog has played a major role over the past six years pioneering the industry enabling us to continue evolving the space together with ScoreMore’s purposeful enhancement of fan experiences through effective fan engagement.

Authentic Fan Engagement is best defined by ELICITING EMOTIONS and creating LIFE ALTERING experiences.

Fanalyse European Summit
Fanalyse curated the first ever European Summit in Cardiff, a top-class selection of speakers, moderators, industry leading delegates and partners from around the world discussed the latest challenges faced in the quest for creating authentic, intimate relationships with fans.
More than 150 delegates heard keynote presentations and panel sessions with discussion and debate about the respect for and engagement of the dedicated fan and the overall quality for spectators.
According to ScoreMore Partner and Advisor, John Piazza, “It was refreshing to hear about innovative team leadership and initiative from the likes of Bart Wiley of the Seattle Sounders in the MLS, Hugh Quinnec & Mike Gillis of the Servette Hockey Club and many other who actually “get it” and see the need for authentic and monetizable fan engagement solutions.”
Access to leisure and sport is a fundamental human right as stated in the 1948 UN Universal Declaration of human rights.
Sport has become a social phenomenon of the twenty-first century that mobilizes and excites people worldwide. Sports clubs and sporting events are tied to fan support, participation, and financial and emotional commitment. Social and economic spinoffs require international agencies and government, national and local authorities, as well as national governing bodies, tourist, commercial, and media interests, to support the declaration.
Fanalyse participates will undertake these Cardiff Declaration efforts in order to:
- Recognize and promote awareness of prompting excellence in developing fan engagement and enhancing the fan experience.
- Reaffirm the sport sectors collaboration commitment to work together in a synergistic and harmonious way to deliver benefits for the fan.
- Provide and share clear evidence based research and information, policy guidelines, technical support, and international best practice to advance understanding in these fields.
- Create adequate and responsible conditions for the development and enhancement of the fan experience.
- To encourage education and training, as well as special created capacity building programs to support and nurture the development of the fan experience.
- To collaborate and cooperate at the European level in order to fully develop the opportunities and potential of the sports industry to deliver an enhanced fan experience.

- To increase collaboration and capacity of understanding between relevant organizations at every level in sport and tourism in order to become more effective and efficient to deliver these goals.
- To develop relationships with other sectors and interests in order to maximize the legacies of successfully delivering the fan experience.
- Participants in the Fanalyse event, wish to mobilize relevant and appropriate financial resources to strength the ability to maximize these goals.
The Cardiff Declaration at the First European Summit was agreed to and adopted on November 17, 2017, at 5:20 p.m.
True Fan Engagement
The cloud-driven ability for a connected fan to interact with the team and other fans during the entire live game, match or concert, is true fan engagement. Fans are competitive by nature and yearn for some easily accessible technology that enables them to interact and compete with other like-minded loyal hometown fans and visitors alike. Winning bids like on eBay or earning free prizes and concessions are powerful incentives for enticing consistent fan engagement.
Fan engagement is NOT fan experience apps that provide operational conveniences such as seat upgrades, parking assistance and food delivery. Fan Engagement is NOT consuming content, statistics, analytics, and video. While there are many so-called fan engagement apps and technologies with successful penetration into the sports marketplace, there is no emotional connection made with a seat upgrade.
Sports Techie, I found an immediate emotional connection with ScoreMore after doing my due diligence with Piazza and Founder, Pam Furey. Pam is a seasoned and proven entrepreneur based in Chicago. Her company vision is both spot on and contagious.
What I am also finding out is there are some potential clients and partners that are not truly “getting” this fan engagement tool, as well as not jumping on board of this unique public relationship opportunity to work with a woman owned business in the sports industry. The latter is a rare occurrence if you did not know. Many Fortune 500 corporations and sports leagues are under fire for their business practices and hiring procedures towards women and minorities.
Mobile applications are taking over fan engagement and ScoreMore has it covered like no other sports technology business in the U.S. and overseas. Besides traditional American sports, I have already contacted the UFC, WWE and top eSports organizations about our wares. Generation Z and millennials are target markets for ScoreMore because they love engaging with their phones all day, everyday. Season ticket holders can become weary of the same old gameday and matchday experiences making ScoreMore a welcomed new and complimentary asset.
As long a a stadium, arena or venue has broadband or preferably Wi-Fi, ScoreMore is ready to integrate with client needs as a stand alone product, with API code or via a link in an existing team app. It you looking for white label look and feel, it can be easily accomplished. Purchase our product per event or as SAAS model, then be amazed how ScoreMore delivers an authentic fan engagement solution that sponsors will be delighted to participant with.
Whether it is pre-game, during game or post-game, ScoreMore is true fan engagement.
