The Next Big Thing in Social Networking?
SportsFYLE is a Chicago-based startup launching their Kickstarter Feb. 16, 2016
CHICAGO, Jan. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SportsFYLE, LLC is a new technology startup based in Chicago, IL founded by David Garside and Eric Hays. SportsFYLE creates online sports focused communities. David and Eric are also building buzz around a new word 'FYLE' to represent an online profile. Their Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign goes live on Feb. 16, 2016. David and Eric hope to get the crowd behind what they believe could be the next big thing in social networking for 2016.
Their goal is to raise at least $50,000 to finish their SportsFYLE Connect mobile platform. The funds will also be used to complete the mobile development of HockeyFYLE.com. Pending the success of their Kickstarter, Eric & David plan on launching either SoccerFYLE.com, BaseballFYLE.com, BasketballFYLE.com or FootballFYLE.com. The crowd will decide the next sports community that SportsFYLE will release first in 2016.
"Our SportsFYLE Connect platform offers a different kind experience designed to get users organized and socially connected to their sport. Players can then develop their own unique virtual scrapbook and sports identity," says David Garside one of the co-founders and CEO of SportsFYLE.
Eric Hays, the founder and CIO of SportsFYLE states, "Now it is all about resources, an idea this big needs a small team of people to get it moving in the right direction. This is too big just for the two of us to do part-time. We need to take the concept to the next level and we are excited to share our plans with the Kickstarter community on Feb. 16."
People by nature are more socially engaged when they join focused groups with similar interests. SportsFYLE communities will give each sport a focused area for players and fans to communicate away from the game. David and Eric are also excited about their new slogan and call to action: "Connect Your Game!" Nobody else has a claim on this to date.
SportsFYLE creates sports based communities focused on the individual player or fan within a sport. HockeyFYLE launched earlier this year as a concept community for hockey fanatics. Players can build their FYLE and post hockey related events and news. Additional features will be added in the near future to enhance the solutions provided by the HockeyFYLE Connect platform.
SportsFYLE, LLC is a new startup based in Chicago, IL founded by Eric Hays and David Garside. They founded SportsFYLE after discovering that the word FYLE could be a clever and fun new word to represent an online profile. So your sport's profile equals your FYLE.
