MINNEAPOLIS, MN. ― SportsEngine and TeamRunner announced today an integration to help tournament directors and team managers save money and simplify planning for everyone who organizes tournaments. Through integration with SportsEngine, TeamRunner further simplifies team managers’ jobs utilizing existing team information in SportsEngine.
“While we have long supported tournaments with schedules, scores, standings, and bracket technology, we know there are several other things that need to be done to ensure smooth operations and create a positive experience for visiting teams,” said Rick Ehrman, VP of business development at SportsEngine. “Integrating with TeamRunner and their expansive marketplace allows us to provide additional tools to our customers.”
Thousands of sports organizations have chosen SportsEngine to run their website, tournaments, leagues, online registration, and mobile apps. Through these applications over 525,000 sports teams, clubs, and leagues have been able to drastically reduce the time they spend on administration and communication, allowing them to focus on time with their athletes.
“It is great that TeamRunner and SportsEngine have teamed up to simplify life for the tournament directors and Team Managers. We both use state of the art technologies and provide significant value for sports players and their families,” said Ziad Tleimat, TeamRunner CEO. “Integrating with SportsEngine allows us to offer their customers better buying power in our marketplace and when businesses compete teams always win.”
Hundreds of tournaments have turned to TeamRunner, including the world’s largest soccer tournament with 3,500 teams in 12 cities, to create an integrated one-stop marketplace enabling the tournament directors to focus on what matters most: creating the best sporting event and a great customer experience for participating teams. Additionally, TeamRunner allows team managers to create a trip profile and invite businesses in destination cities to bid and compete for the trip.
