SPORT NGIN, is an organizational suite of tools for amateur sports team and league management. With over 2,300 unique members and 80,000 different teams, SPORT NGIN powers millions of photos, videos, comments, stats and live scores from around the nation.

SPORT NGIN Mobile“Personal interaction between coaches, players, parents and fans are at the core of every sports organization, league or tournament,” Co founder Carson Kipfer says, “With this initial release, we’ve gone to great lengths to leverage the mobile experience to encourage and enhance team communication and sharing.”

SPORT NGINNotable app features include:

  • Find and follow teams
  • Real time schedules, results, news and statistics
  • Post team messages and announcements
  • Share photos and videos from the game
  • Rosters and player profiles, complete with game-by-game statistics

The app is free to download and follow one team, or $3.99 for an annual subscription to follow unlimited teams. Kipfer notes that while its positioned towards those already using the NGIN platform, it is “definitely going to create more of a consumer appeal for the content that is available on a team by team basis.”  He adds that Android is in the works, but is hesitant to peg a specific time frame to the development, “we are going to take our time and do it right.”
