Melissa Blair is the co-founder of SportsHosts, a platform built to connect travellers, both local and internationals, with local fans to watch sports together. True to the company’s vision, Melissa believes that sports is a common ground that breaks the boundaries no matter what age, race, gender or preference one might have.
Prior to founding SportsHosts, Melissa was a university lecturer, marketing director, strategist and a digital and social media lead. She has lived and worked across four continents around the world and collaborated with brands and organisations like Unilever, L’oreal, Canadian Olympic Foundation, NHS England, The Rockefeller Foundation's 100 Resilient Cities, Victoria Against Violence, AFL, City Football Group and Brooklyn Sports and Entertainment Global.
Now with SportsHosts, Melissa has set foot in New York City and San Francisco as they look into expanding the business to the United States after their successful stints with the AFL and A-League in Melbourne.
