“SportsEngine, now a part of the NBC Sports Group, announced today that it has acquired Trackwrestling to strengthen its product solution offered to wrestling events and clubs. As part of the acquisition, the entire Trackwrestling team immediately joins SportsEngine and will continue supporting their over 7,000 wrestling events and customers.”
“We’re extremely pleased that Trackwrestling is joining SportsEngine.” said Justin Kaufenberg, co-founder and chief executive officer at SportsEngine. “They have an exceptionally deep and powerful system for wrestling organizations, powering more than 8,000 high school and college teams and over 7,000 events. Additionally, their deep expertise and knowledge in the space will help us expand our shared offering to other related sports.”
Justin Tritz, chief executive officer of Trackwrestling, will stay on and remain the leader of Trackwrestling. “To continue fueling our tremendous growth, we are still doing what we’ve been doing, only now we have the tremendous support and resources of SportsEngine and NBC Sports behind us. This empowers us to do not only the things we want to do, but do them much quicker. There was a growing number of situations where people would say ‘can you guys do this’ and we just didn’t always have the resources to say yes to all of them. Those projects are now happening, and they are happening quickly. The opportunities and direction we are heading couldn’t be more exciting!”
Thousands of sports organizations have chosen SportsEngine to run their online registration, websites, tournaments, leagues and mobile apps. Through these applications, clubs and leagues are able to drastically reduce the time they spend on administration and provide tools that help sports organizations manage, connect, and communicate with a diverse range of stakeholders. More than half a million teams, clubs, leagues and associations around the world are powered by SportsEngine. The Minneapolis-based company also provides its services to teams across the MLS, NBA, MLB and NHL.
“Joining SportsEngine specifically allows us to integrate our wrestling management platform with SportsEngine Sitebuilder, Registration, and Verify, creating an incredibly attractive suite for any wrestling club or event,” added Tritz. “We are tremendously grateful for the support we’ve received from wrestling fans, coaches, and governing bodies over the past 14 years. We want the wrestling world to know that our reliable services and exceptional customer support will continue to be our priority. Our services and abilities will be affected only in the direction of positive growth and enhancements.”
