With Spain, France and the Arabic market, the digital marketplace for sports sponsorship continues to drive forward internationalization
(Hamburg, March 2021) Sponsoo, the market leader for digital sports sponsorship in Germany, will now focus on marketing sports sponsorship rights in the Spanish, French and Arabic markets in addition to the German, Italian and English markets. Spanish-, French- and Arabic-speaking athletes, teams, clubs and events will now have the opportunity to create a profile on the marketplace and position their sports sponsorship offers in a highly visible way for brands. Companies will also be able to register in Spanish, French and Arabic and discover the portfolio of over 5,300 international athletes, 3,000 teams, 2,000 clubs and their 3.6 million fans.
The startup has great growth potential and has seen increasing numbers even in 2020 with the tense situation in the sports industry due to the Corona crisis. In last year's Series A funding round, Sponsoo raised a €1.4 million investment and received another six-figure capital increase earlier this year. The founders have thus focused much more on internationalization and will continue to invest a large part of the investment in further development and growth. "After a turbulent and uncertain, but in the end successful fiscal year 2020 for us, we are looking forward with a lot of confidence to the sports year 2021 and the future of the industry, despite the current constraints. The desire for sports as a source of hope will continue to drive sponsorship this year. Accordingly, our expansion into further countries is a necessary step to support athletes in the current situation and to broaden our portfolio for companies looking for sponsorships associated with emotion," says Andreas Kitzing, founder and CEO of Sponsoo.
Sponsoo founders Andreas Kitzing, CEO, and Christian Kaspar, CTO, want to revolutionize sports sponsorship in Spain, France and the Arab market with the digital marketplace.
