FANDOM SPORTS Media Corp. focuses on ready to sell B2B live sports licensing business while FANDOM SPORTS Oy is fully dedicated for Esports
VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 24, 2019 / FANDOM SPORTS Media Corp. (CSE:FDM)(OTC:FDMSF)(FRANKFURT:TQ42) is pleased to announce the operational strategy for Q4, 2019 onwards.
The FANDOM SPORTS technology platform and live sports application will be licensed out to global sports organizations and telecom operators to engage their sports fan base while revving up current revenue for both the sports and telecom organization and FANDOM SPORTS through a revenue share model. The business model monetizes the fan base and the community, while hosting them is key to a successful licensing model for FANDOM SPORTS.
Licensing the business models since the inception. The first licensing pitches have been sent out for negotiations. The business model follows well-articulated study by a Delta Partners Group.
“To address this shifting model and potential revenue stagnation or declines from traditional commercial approaches, sports organisations need to boost revenues by engaging their fan base. Thinking of a smartphone as an internet connected screen, sports organisations have the potential to engage and monetise their fan bases globally. Sports teams are highly successful at building passion and loyalty with their fans, but there is a gap when it comes to the ability to monetise that engagement. Engagement of the fans is insufficient and needs to be underpinned by a commercial model. Sports organisations need to understand how to best utilise subscription, advertising and sponsorship, licensing, digital and physical transactions as well as data monetisation.”

- Two content channels; live sports predictions and daily top sports news

As the Board of directors are in favor of Esports App development and separate funding, FANDOM SPORTS OY has begun its fundraising efforts for FANDOM ESPORTS. The FANDOM ESPORTS App will revolutionize the global fan community with PLAY. PREDICT. GET REWARDED. The esports fan community is a massive global growth market and in the early days compared to established and regulated Live Sports and Sports Content market which has now saturated. The global market revenues generated from esports have rocketed in the last year.
“Realizing the potential of tapping into the esports market, some brands have already made significant investments into esports marketing. So the industry saw an impressive increase in revenue in the past years.
According to the previously cited Newzoo analysis, there has been an average revenue increase of more than 30% annually. And a large portion of it resulted from brand contributions. In 2016, the total esports revenue was $493 million, out of which $350 million came from brand investments. This increased by 33% year over year in 2017, where the total revenue was $655 million, and brand investments contributed to $468 million of this.
In 2018, the average year-on-year increase in total revenue was at an impressive 38.2%. The esports industry made a total of $906 million in revenue. Out of this, $694 million came from brand investments – both direct and indirect. That’s a 48% increase in brand investment from the previous year. Newzoo predicts that by 2021, esports will generate more than $1.6 billion in total revenue with $1.3 billion coming from brand investments.” https://influencermarketinghub.com/growth-of-esports-in-2019-stats/
