SportyFi – Decentralized Sports Investment Start-up Endorsed by Soccer Superstar Roberto Carlos

UK-based SportyFi will disrupt the sports financing market by setting up a blockchain-based platform for fans and small investors. This will give up-and-coming athletes the opportunity to overcome the final hurdle before their career takes off. To set up the platform, SportyFi will launch the SPF Token Crowdsale on November 14th, 2017, with a hard cap of $16 million.

London-based tech start-up SportyFi is looking for the back of the net with an innovative Blockchain-based financing ecosystem. SportyFi will launch the Smart Manager Platform and the SportyFi Professional Fund, which will enable donations, detailed sponsorship smart contracts of various types, as well as complex investment smart contracts, where an athlete, a club or another sports organization will offer a long-term deal for a share of future income or other revenue stream in exchange for an upfront cash injection.

This, they hope,  will offer the potential to address many of the liquidity issues present in the sports industry today.

The platform has the potential to enable a wider community to invest in sport, an industry worth USD $620 billion with constant growth. By disrupting the existing model for financing participants in sport, SportyFi hopes to open a new chapter in the sports industry, democratizing sports investment. The platform is already in development and on schedule for a Q1 2018 launch.

Supported by a team which includes legendary international footballer Roberto Carlos, along with Olympians, NBA players, and Sports Officials, SportyFi looks solid with good backing to have significant impact –  and bring the right opportunities to the players that truly need them the most.

Roberto commented:

“I’m very happy to support SportyFi, which will work with young athletes at the most crucial point in their career and will give fans and small investors the opportunity to support them. Let’s find the next superstars together!”

Professional sports today carry high barriers to entry – both for athletes, and small investors. Up-and-coming athletes at the outset of their professional careers face a lot of issues when it comes to funding training and participation in global events. The same goes for many sports clubs and organizations which face severe financial and liquidity issues. This, claims Sportyfi –  is the basis of their creation of value – and the team want to open the doors wide in terms of creating opportunities for young athletes.
