Elite Prospects Cup Series
Our plan is to provide the participating organizations and their teams (40 total AAA hockey teams each weekend) with a unique experience, not like any other that they are used to during their seasons. We don't want to be "just another tournament weekend."
Elite Prospects plans to live stream all games of each weekend, and our social media/marketing teams will be conducting player and coach interviews, and some sponsor interviews/featurettes -- all to add to the experience and provide further exposure beyond the on-location reach.
We want each weekend to be a memorable experience that the players walk away from wanting to come back again immediately. We expect our treatment of the players and coaches and our unique vendors to be among the main factors that add to this experience, in addition to the high level on-ice competition.

Elite Prospects is the #1 online database of hockey leagues, teams and players, worldwide. All vendors in the EP Cup Series will have the opportunity to partner with our online brand in addition to our Elite Prospects-branded events (not limited to just the four weekends of the EP Cup Series, as we plan to have more events moving forward).
We plan to work with each vendor to promote their products and services both on-location and online, as our website reaches 1.6 million page views weekly, with a newsletter/email database of approximately 145,000 subscribers.

In addition, our plans for the Elite Prospects Premium services include exclusive partner benefits for those who subscribe to a new sub-platform we plan to release specifically for leagues, teams and hockey organizations, called "EP Enterprise", which will be launched in the coming months. The partner benefits section of this platform will be available for you to market and sell your products/services at a special rate or simply promote your brand, directly to the decision makers who will have administrative control of their league/team/organizations' Elite Prospects profiles. This feature of our Enterprise platform will likely be available in the final quarter of 2022 (Version 2.0).
The participating hockey organizations in the EP Cup Series will all be provided complimentary Premium subscriptions, and we sell these one-year subscriptions to other leagues and organizations at an annual rate ranging from $30-$50 per player, depending on the size of the league/organization. This part of our business will become a main focus in the years to come, as our developers are currently working on the addition of more features that will include data integration, team management, scouting/recruiting capabilities, and other partner programs.
