“We believe this is the right Partnership to help youth sports organizations rebuild and thrive,” said Jeff Brunsberg, Chief Revenue and Strategy Officer at Stack Sports. “Helping youth sports organizations adapt to the changing world has been a huge focus for us at Stack Sports, before and during the COVID-19 crisis. We believe finding new ways to generate revenue for our Partners with no cost to parents will contribute to the industry’s overall economic recovery.”
Following “stay at home” orders around the U.S. due to the pandemic, retail spending is one of the biggest categories to rebound in the economy. With billions of dollars in retail transactions occurring via the buying power of youth sports families, this represents a new and significant source of funding for local organizations. The impact of COVID-19 on youth sports in the U.S. could cost the industry billions of dollars and leave many clubs struggling to survive. This zero-cost to parents or organizations approach to providing financial assistance is an innovative take on harnessing the buying power of loyal consumers with digital payment technology. This initiative creates a mutually beneficial scenario for families and the youth sports industry.
“Accelerating the recovery of youth sports in the US is critical to keeping kids involved in sports. At TapNPay+, we chose to partner with the global leader in sports technology so we could make as big of an impact as possible for organized athletics across the country,” said Gary Antonucci, Vice President of Strategic Operations TapNPay+. “Our technology will allow millions of families to fuel this recovery, and all they have to do is use our mobile app on purchases they were already making each and every day. Our goal is simply to provide daily financial support to organizations and families in order to assist in the continuance of all extracurricular activities.”
Stack Sports, the largest and fastest-growing global provider of sports technology, will bolster its mobile payments business and reinforce its Payments as a Service strategy worldwide with this Partnership. The joint venture will include marketing plans through Sports Connect which will continue to offer its Partners a comprehensive solution with best-in-class club management tools, industry-leading support, and ease of use. All of this combined will allow youth sports organizations to enjoy a unique and comprehensive experience in the Stack Sports ecosystem.
