PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- LEGACY Global Sports (LGS), a global leader in youth sports, has teamed up with BAND, a leading group communication service, to create world-class experiences for young athletes and their families at LGS events.
"As a group communication service, BAND is in a unique position to improve the way individual teams and large sporting events are organized. We're excited to join LEGACY Global Sports in providing valuable experiences for their athletes," said Steven Lee, General Manager of BAND.
LEGACY Global Sports delivers more than 500 events across football, soccer, hockey, lacrosse and international sports tours. LEGACY will begin using BAND as their primary communication service, including both tournament and internal team communications.
Youth sports schedules and logistics are constantly changing and BAND's ability to deliver real-time information and communications before, during, and after events will take LGS events to another level. Attendees will be able to interact with LGS staff and fellow participants for real-time sharing and experiences that other products can't deliver.

We're excited about the partnership because BAND solves a lot of problems for us with an easily adoptable user experience," says Director of Marketing & Digital Sales at LEGACY Global Sports, Jared Antista.
