Sport Street was founded by Daniel Smith and Adam Ferencz in 2011. It was born from a craving they each had, as well as many other sports fans they knew, which was to have a dedicated place to share all things sports in the digital world. Today, Sport Street's mission continues to be steadfast and clear: become the leader for niche social media in the sports sector. Sport Street marries the best of social media with the leaders in sports. It empowers users to create their own network of friends and to interact through countless social tools.
Team Pages for every Division 1 NCAA basketball and football program-along with Team Pages across leading Pro sports leagues-give fans the ability to customize their home on Sport Street. Within each Team Page, aggregated team and player tweets, pictures and videos from leading social networks (Twitter, YouTube, Instagram), breaking news, stats, roster, schedule and fan chats, provide endless engagement and entertainment. While refinements and improvements continue to be made, the Sport Street platform is now live, with a desktop, mobile site and mobile apps. Truly, it remains the only place for sports fans to experience the best of social media, the best of sports and to live as their best sports-fan selves. See you on Sport Street...
