Sports App Development Company

We design and develop cutting-edge software solutions to serve each and every aspect of the sports industry: personal training, coaching, managing sports teams and leagues, fans engagement, booking sports facilities, delivering news.

Market overview

Are you aware of the massive economic impact of sports, in addition to their proven health benefits? From sports tourism and betting to broadcasting and media rights, sports have a far-reaching influence that goes well beyond the playing field.

But that's not all - sports-related apps are now more popular than ever, providing individuals with the ability to track their health and fitness progress, schedule activities, and even participate in team sports with friends.

Thanks to the power of web and mobile technologies, the sports industry has been completely transformed, creating opportunities for sports clubs and venues to manage resources, improve consumer relationships, generate significant revenue, and uncover valuable insights through advanced data analytics.

The sports and fitness app market scope:

  • Global installations of sports apps are forecasted to rise with 5-15% boost occurring each year.

  • The time spent on mobile apps: sports apps is the second fastest growing mobile app category that stands at 43% increase in usage sessions over 2016.

The sports app market includes a wealth of players, with top names including ESPN, FOX Sports, LiveScore, Fitbit and RunKeeper.

The shift to sports apps is driven by their cost-effective nature. Big sporting events, like NBA playoffs, are also contributing to the market growth.

In this respect, live streaming apps and dedicated tournament apps present a compelling opportunity for app developers as such apps make huge gains in downloads during related events.

Sports apps market trends:

To sum it up, winning the game in sports app development requires not just commitment to fans and players, but also leveraging principles of integrity and harnessing the power of innovative technologies. And this is something we can help you with!

  • Wearables, integrity and social media.

    Sports and fitness apps interfacing with external health and fitness trackers or taking advantage of the inbuilt smartphone functions, like GPS for tracking running distance and speed, are of special interest now. Users also appreciate the integration of multiple activities into one application and they want to share their sports data on social networks.

  • AR and VR technologies.

    The sports industry is adopting augmented reality and virtual reality for creating personalized and engaging sports apps. 360-degree cameras in stadiums will soon bring stunning interactive experience to live sports! The technology is still in its infancy but, without doubt, it has a big potential for sports broadcasting, enhancing the experience for sports fans and incorporating into the players training programs.

  • Gamification.

    Combining sports activities and game elements helps to drive fan engagement, motivate users to do their best in achieving goals and make it more fun to watch or play sports. There are gamified apps for skiing, golf, football and other sports, e.g. a popular running app Zombies, Run! that adds a gamification factor to running workouts.

New technologies are revolutionizing the way sports are watched, organized and played all over the globe and we are excited to be involved in this process.

All people, who start playing sports, be it golf, tennis or squash, want to become better players. And the excellence in sport have no limits.

Besides the passion to play soccer, there are three key elements needed to make the game happen: time, team and space.

Playing team sports is more enjoyable than exercising alone. They do not only help you get active and fit, they add an exciting element of competition and let you have fun while socializing.
