In March 2019, SportsHero entered an exclusive agreement with the Football Association of Indonesia (PSSI), one of the world’s largest sports federation. This agreement will see SportsHero executively provide and partner with PSSI to build its first official platform.
Indonesia represents the largest digital community in south-east Asia with 130 million social media users, 177 million mobile users and 120 million mobile social users.
Indonesia’s current cup, the Piala Indonesian Cup, peaks in June with the playoffs, which is Indonesia’s most watched football competition. In regards to this PSSI launched an aggressive marketing campaign to engage its members with the cup and the launch of SportHero’s app.
Throughout the cup it is estimated that PSSI will host up to 1,200 matches with attendance ranging between 20,000 – 30,000 fans per game.
The launch of this app is a significant step milestone for SportsHero as it demonstrates an expansion of scope and range of services that are able to be provided.
“Through the development of white label mobile apps for leading sports leagues such as PSSI, SportsHero is able to leverage existing fan bases and gain mass traction with minimal marketing,” SportsHero CEO, Tom Lapping said.
Following as successful launch the opportunity exists for SportsHero to enter similar agreements with other leading football and sports teams across Asia and globally.
