Premier Sports Network are proud to announce that Teamworks will continue as the official athlete engagement partner for the player care network.
It is with great pride that Premier Sports Network are able to announce the renewal of a strong partnership with Teamworks as our official athlete engagement partner, who will continue to provide best-in-class and innovative communication for our player care network.
Since the first cases of COVID-19 were diagnosed globally in January, teams from the world’s most elite professional leagues have sought out partnerships with sports technology platform Teamworks to ensure efficient and consistent player and staff communication and engagement. Teamworks, which streamlines communication and logistics-coordinating through its mobile app, allows players and staff to stay connected and coordinate schedules whether they’re in the team facilities or operating under remote conditions.
Based in the United States and established in 2004, Teamworks seeks to centralise communication and internal processes for teams while also providing the premium player experience. The platform is used by more than 100 elite professional organisations around the world, with recent partnerships struck with: English Premier League (EPL) side Chelsea FC, Premiership Rugby club Bristol Bears, National Basketball Association (NBA) franchise San Antonio Spurs, National Football League (NFL) franchise Carolina Panthers, and the newly established Seattle Kraken of the National Hockey League (NHL), just to name a few.
In the last several months, sports have operated in a way they have never had to before with games and practices being cancelled or postponed while players, coaches and staff have been sequestered in their homes. Teamworks has been at the forefront of supporting the execution of ‘return to play’ plan as leadership teams recognise athlete communication and engagement as paramount to their success.
Spencer Hidge, Founder of Premier Sports Network, said: “With the pandemic changing the landscape of sport, many clubs have had to adopt new strategies in order to engage with their athletes remotely. Teamworks has been exceptional with supporting our Player Care network, through their innovative athlete engagement platform, and we are delighted to be continuing our relationship into 2021.”
Mitch Heath, Co-Founder & President of Global Markets at Teamworks said: “We look forward to deepening our partnership with Premier Sports Network and to continue providing valuable content to elite professional teams throughout the world. This year brought obstacles and challenges never experienced before in the sports industry. The emphasis placed on player care and athlete engagement is more critical now to ensure teams maintain cohesion and operate at the highest calibre.”
