LinkedIn of the Sports World
It’s My Play is a social media platform that creates customized websites for sports organizations, teams, coaches and athletes, and provides a space to reconnect the sports industry to each other and its fans. With It’s My Play, teams can promote their athletes. Scouts can discover their new prodigy. Fans can follow their biggest idol. And athletes can finally be found and achieve their dreams.
To understand the impact of It’s My Play, consider the story of Andrew Dikas, a young basketball player from the U.S. with a big dream. Coming from a small school, Dikas struggled with climbing his way to the top due to the lack of exposure and connections — until he discovered It’s My Play. Upon the registration of his profile, Dikas was immediately contacted by scouts and coaches from all over the world. Now, you can find Dikas playing for a Division 1 professional European team.

The numerous social media platforms, and hence lack of centralized platforms, have triggered major fragmentation within the sports industry.
Ineffective advertising. An array of social media platforms means scattered information of athletes, making it more difficult to advertise each athlete for discovery.
Disconnected Information. Teams, athletes, coaches and parents are attempting to manage profiles across numerous channels; Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, team websites, self- owned websites, and non-social recruiting sites resulting in a dilution of their brand.
Endless scouting. When searching for their next star, scouts bounce from one social media site to the next, unsuccessfully and inefficiently attempting to piece together scattered information on each athlete while many talents remain unseen and unheard.
The lack of a centralized platform in the sports industry is creating a large gap within it. It’s My Play strives to connect people with more than opportunities — we strive to connect people to each other.
It’s My Play was created to help athletes like Andrew achieve their dreams while facilitating the hunt for recruiters and scouts — and we’ve witnessed a great amount of success ourselves.
