Sportstech company LeagueSide, which planted its Philly roots when cofounders Evan Brandoff and Zubin Teherani met at training camp for Venture for America, is expanding its reach via an acquisition by sports software company TeamSnap.
The 2015-founded, Center City-headquartered company matches youth sports leagues across the country with brands that will sponsor the teams. In turn, the sponsors gain exposure and potential clients, and can track relevant metrics provided by LeagueSide. Since its launch, LeagueSide has grown to feature more than 20,000 local sports orgs, and works with sponsors like DIRECTV, Chipotle, Uber and Verizon.
Remote-first TeamSnap, founded in 2009, is an online sports community and sports management platform that’s used by millions of youth sports coaches, admins, players and parents, the company said.
