FloSports has announced its acquisition of HockeyTech, a live and on-demand hockey streaming platform and sports data provider to teams, leagues and national organisations.
Stu Siegel, Chairman and Founder of HockeyTech, commented: “The team and I are excited to join FloSports and bring our expertise in the sport of hockey to this impressive fast growing media company.
“In addition to bringing HockeyTech, I am also investing in FloSports, and I am thrilled to participate as a FloSports shareholder.”
The new collaboration sees HockeyTV bring over 30,000 live hockey games across 75 North American leagues to FloSports, and the enterprise will operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of FloSports.
Mark Floreani, CEO and Co-Founder of FloSports, noted: “HockeyTech and its suite of products are a perfect complement to FloSports and represents our commitment to deeper coverage of and investment into the sport of hockey to help bring this sport to new audiences worldwide.
“Stu, Stewart and their team at HockeyTech will propel FloSports into one of the leading streaming platforms for passionate hockey fans. We welcome them to the FloSports family, and we’re excited about the future we can build together.”
With the combination of FloSports’ current offering on the subscription video streaming service platform, the company and its HockeyTech subsidiary will broadcast nearly 40,000 hockey games annually whilst looking to deliver an ‘enhanced live sports viewing experience’ driven by sports data.
Moreover, in a further commitment to technology investment within sports, the enterprise has recently announced partnerships with the ECHL as well as Atlantic Hockey and Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA), two NCAA Division 1 college athletic conferences.
