Q&A Highlight

Jason Davis question for Simon Murphy

Simon Murphy:

Hi @jase.

With the smartwatch tech, we’re focused on continuing to develop the product and achieve a critical mass with our user base. We’re already working on streaming/broadcasting scores using our API. Our plan is to power all scores for broadcast, live scoring apps and social media channels all non-pro teams using the data from referees. As we scale, we’ll charge for access to our API for real time scores and updates, enabling leagues to commercialise their own data.
