Digitizing Sports : The Pandemic Effect
We have all witnessed the world come to a standstill and then eventually transformed completely into a new one in the past two years. The pandemic has transformed every society, every industry and every country! While some industries have flourished because of the pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns, most of the industries have suffered huge losses. One such industry is the sports industry.
When we say sports industry, it is interesting to know that what comes into everyone’s mind is sports at the highest level, the International or the Olympic level. But it is necessary to realize that sports is an ecosystem. The journey of every athlete starts at the grassroots level. The athletes playing at this level most often than not don’t get access to advanced facilities to improve their game or even a proper platform to display their skills. And the situation worsened because of the pandemic! With lesser tournaments being organized and restrictions on the number of people attending to watch a LIVE match, the opportunities for the players at the grassroots level were seen to be decreasing. While other entertainment based industries opted to stream their content on OTT platforms, sports and especially sports at the grassroot level was found searching for better alternatives and that’s exactly where SportVot comes into the picture!
