Boston, Massachusetts (PRWEB) April 22, 2015
HockeyTech, the worldwide leader in hockey-related technologies, analytics and information services, announced today the acquisition of FASTHockey, the world’s premier digital media partner for hockey national governing bodies, leagues, teams and events. This marks the fifth acquisition for HockeyTech in the last 2-1/2 years.
FASTHockey (http://www.FASTHockey.com) is the leading online destination to view live and on demand streaming video of amateur ice hockey games from across North America. The feature rich platform is frequented by scouts, recruiters, coaches, players, parents, and fans from around the world.
“The acquisition of FASTHockey enables HockeyTech to continue its mission to lead the hockey world with the most comprehensive offering of technologies, analytics tools, and information services”, said HockeyTech CEO Stu Siegel. “We are most excited about the opportunity to add live and on demand video content to our offerings, along with advanced video editing technology. We welcome FASTHockey’s key partners and dedicated employees to the HockeyTech family.”
FASTHockey broadcasts around fifteen thousand games annually to nearly a half million viewers around the globe. Partners benefit from 24x7 broadcast operations, high-end streaming hardware and software, and top-notch customer service. Founded in 2005, FASTHockey has aggregated the largest video on demand library of its kind in the world, currently with around eighty thousand full length hockey games from partners that include USA Hockey, Hockey Canada, USHL, NAHL, CJHL, EHL and many others.
“Becoming the premier online broadcaster in hockey over the last decade took incredibly hard work by really talented people,” said FASTHockey founder Marc Ruskin. “While we are truly proud of our accomplishments to date, becoming a part of HockeyTech empowers us to go even further through the integration of our combined state-of-the-art technologies.”
HockeyTech is the worldwide leader in providing hockey-related technologies, analytics and information services. HockeyTech was founded in 2013 by Stu Siegel, serial technology entrepreneur and former Florida Panthers Managing Partner/CEO, to address the lack of technology tools available to the hockey world. The company has grown rapidly, and has made five company acquisitions to date. While HockeyTech is a new corporate identity, it has been providing cutting-edge solutions to the hockey world since 1998.
