Tailgating is big business, with American consumers spending billions annually on food, games, apparel, cooking and storage gear. One of the companies vying for a slice of that pie is Sporthole Games, a standout performer at recent The Sports Licensing and Tailgate Show.

Sporthole Games is one of six industry innovators featured on the June 18th episode of The Big Pitch, which airs at 4:00 PM EST on the Fox Business Network.

The company offers fun and challenging bag toss games that bring the strategy and skill of sports such as football, baseball, soccer and golf to back yards, barbecues and tailgating adventures.

Ryan Furler, Sporthole Games creator and partner, envisioned something more than the traditional bag toss game. “I wanted a game with real sports, real scoring and real strategy,” says Furler. “So we developed a wide range of popular sports, pub and kids games to let friends and families enjoy playing together. They’re easily portable and are a great addition to back yard and tailgating parties. We’re excited to be working with The Big Pitch team.”

“Cornhole has become an incredibly popular sport,” says Big Pitch panelist Kevin Harrington. “We picked this game for the program because it offers players 18 different games on 9 different boards that slide in and out of a solid, high-quality frame. Why would you play cornhole when you could play this game? This product takes it to an entirely new level.”

Harrington, an original “Shark” on Shark Tank and a direct-to-consumer infomercial pioneer, is one of three panelists on the June 18th episode of The Big Pitch, which was filmed on location last January at the 2016 The Sports Licensing and Tailgate Show in Las Vegas. Thousands of retailers and buyers scour the trade-only event, searching for the next big thing. Many of the products at the show won’t hit store shelves until later this year.

“The Big Pitch is a great way to get a sneak peek at innovative products,” says panelist Brian Hakan. “Our innovation is that you can buy the products as they’re being pitched to us on TV—or anytime thereafter from web site.”

A limited number of Sporthole Games will be offered at a special price to viewers of The Big Pitch.

In addition to appearing on the TV Shopping Show, Sporthole Games will be tapping into The Big Pitch team’s experience in areas ranging from marketing, social media and distribution to sourcing, packaging and product development.
