A social network for your favorite
athletes and teams across sports history.

(or, a social operating system)

Sports is a fabric connecting all parts of society, down to the local neighborhood level.

It connects the teammates on your 2005 high school swimming team. Fan bases of the 1985 Super Bowl Champion Chicago Bears. Winners of the Heisman trophy. Fans in the stadium of a World Cup soccer match. It connects local businesses to the high school teams they sponsor. Brands to athletes. Athletes to the products they use. It connects people to charities, to the places they've worked in 1995 and to the local teams their workplace sponsored that season. Families connect around the teams they root for--and against. So do military units, tailgate parties, and fraternities and sororities. Even the fan-owned Green Bay Packers is a sports social network. So is your city. So is your country.

The problem is, these relationships aren't connected online in a centralized location. There is no "sports graph".

Using the most in-depth, networked, and historical databases on the planet, that's what our team is changing.

Where most people see just sports, we see an entirely new connected network: A network that distributes content across both history and geography; a network that unites fan bases around the things they root for and against; a network that makes history discoverable and relevant; a network where commerce not ads matter most; and a network that connects the missing identity layers of the social web: tribes, trophies, teammates, and events.

A network that connects the rest of the world just like sports.

Across history, down to the local level, and around the world.

Connected, new frontiers for content, commerce, and communication can be built on top.

We're a technology company doing some really big things with data, networks, commerce, and the blockchain.

Instead of data organized around just friends and interests, we see it also organized around history and geography.

Instead of more ad-based pages and profiles, we see the future of the internet as commerce-based networks.

For any person, place, product, company, team, and organization in the world. Starting with sports.

Our big secret is that the complex data structures organizing sports connect the rest of the world too.

We believe that on top of these connections, the next great technology company will exist.
