The release of ‘Your Fancred’ really sets the tone for our company direction with a completely differentiated product and vision.
BOSTON, MASS (PRWEB) December 16, 2014
Fancred, an app that lets fans capture favorite sports moments and connect with a community of fellow fans, announced today the launch of “Your Fancred,” a new way to digitally store, share, and relive your sports memories in the form of a fan profile. This announcement comes on the heels of a recent $3 million funding round and launch of Fancred’s Android app in October 2014.
As a sports fan, you cheer for teams, go to games, buy gear, take photos, celebrate the wins and mourn the losses. Your Fancred is a place to digitally capture and neatly organize these moments by favorite allegiances - the teams, sports, and events you live for - so it’s easy to relive and share memories. Once signed in using email or Facebook, simply begin building your fan profile by choosing your favorite teams and sports. Your Fancred automatically organizes and ranks all fan activity (photos, videos, conversations, articles and check-ins) into dedicated albums on your profile.
“The sports industry is still in its infancy when it comes to fan engagement on mobile and social media,” said Fancred’s CEO, Hossein Kash Razzaghi. “The release of ‘Your Fancred’ really sets the tone for our company direction with a completely differentiated product and vision.”
While Your Fancred enhances profiles to better capture your sports life, the app will continue offering the same social features that have made it wildly popular. The ‘Team Feeds’ allow you to discover and interact with opinionated and relevant sports content shared by fans, influencers, teams, brands, and sports media organizations.
The introduction of Your Fancred brings Fancred one step closer to its mission of building the complete sports fan network. Since launching in 2012, the iOS and Android app, as well as the web client, have been rapidly gaining traction, growing its user base 10x over the last year and 50% month over month. Additionally, Fancred is continuing to form strategic partnerships with professional and collegiate sports teams, brands, and media organizations to give you access to unique content and exclusive information right inside the app.
Founded in 2012, Fancred’s mission is to build the complete sports fan network by offering a digital scrapbook for fans to capture favorite sports moments while connecting with other fans and teams. Fancred is currently available on iOS, Android, and Fancred.com.
