DETROIT, March 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- LGBTSportZdate.com is the first and only dating site to cater specifically to sports enthusiasts within the LGBT community. According to the USA Sports Fan Association, 3.8% of the U.S. population are part of the LGBT community and 56% of this community are avid sports fans – that's 5.4 million people. LGBT involvement in sports is huge – and yet, no platform existed to bring members of this community together – until now. LGBTSportZdate.com fills this need, bringing people together under the shared umbrella of sports fandom.
The site boasts all the convenient features one expects from a dating site, along with added social network services tailored to the LGBT sports community. Users can create a free profile on LGBTSportZdate.com, upload a photo and add basic details about themselves. Free members can create an informative personal essay that describes their dating goals, topped off with an attention-grabbing headline. The search function allows members to sort other LGBT singles by location, age, sports of interest and other preferences, narrowing the results down to a manageable number. Members can then show interest in another member with a single click.
Premium memberships enable members to communicate more directly with each other via instant messaging, email or chat. Fees for charter premium memberships are only $19.95 annually, half of what most other dating sites charge per month, and provides members access to all of its services. "We want everyone who joins the site to have a positive experience, and that begins and ends with a quality community."
LGBTSportZdate.com offers all the tools and features needed to build a great community and expand one's social network. The chat room is available 24 hours a day and always filled with people eager to communicate and the sports fan forum creates discussions on all aspects of sports and the LGBT lifestyle. The built-in instant messaging tool enables voice and video greetings; those who want to be more cautious can always depend on the site's email system.
To help members get the most out of their experience, the site publishes a weekly online dating newsletter. Each issue of the digital newsletter is full of practical information about relationships and health. The newsletter also contains helpful tips about online dating in general, a benefit to those new to the experience and uncertain how to proceed.
The company behind LGBTSportZdate.com has plans to launch the site in Australia and the UK within the next year, followed by an international rollout. Today, LGBTSportZdate.com is actively recruiting Area Membership Directors in major American and Canadian sports cities in order have a local active involvement with the LGBT Community and other LGBT sports organizations in each area.
LGBTSportZdate.com and SportZdate.com are owned by Sports Fan Match LLC, a dating and social network company that started two years ago as a service for the 6.3 million members of the USA Sports Fan Association. For more information, call 888-270-8869 or email [email protected].
