NEW YORK, NY – Sept 30, 2020 – Sports technology leader Atrium Sports announced today that it is taking a major step in its mission to enrich the world of sport through the creation of Synergy Sports. Atrium Sports, Synergy Sports Technology and Keemotion – the latter two companies acquired by Atrium Sports in 2019 – are now integrated into a single company: Synergy Sports. The new Synergy Sports will be the most advanced sports data and video platform in the world, serving the needs of teams, leagues and federations at all levels of play.
Sports technology is a complex landscape littered with single point solutions that are siloed, difficult to integrate and fail to unlock the value of stakeholder’s content. The new Synergy Sports solves this problem. Through a groundbreaking AI-based technology platform, Synergy Sports is dedicated to creating game-changing technologies while also partnering with other technology leaders in sports. The end result is a powerful, frictionless ecosystem of best-in-class technologies. For the first time, sports teams, leagues and federations can now leverage a single provider’s technology suite to do everything from producing their games to selling their content. The new Synergy Sports reduces the complexity and costs of live game production and content distribution, offering a simple and affordable solution to livestreaming and delivery of enhanced content.
Mark Silver, formerly CEO of Synergy Sports Technology, will take the helm as CEO of the new Synergy Sports. Ben Turner, formerly CEO and a co-Founder of Atrium Sports, will take the role of Chief Sport Officer. Mark said, “The opportunity to bring together three companies who have been industry leaders in their specific category of sports technology with a unifying vision of creating the first of its kind end-to-end solution is a game changer. Continuing to develop our own AI-driven proprietary technology while partnering with other best-in-class technologies to help meet the needs of our clients is a win-win for everyone, most importantly the players and fans!”
Synergy Sports’ Chairman, Nick Maywald, said, “Synergy Sports’ new brand promise is to deliver a fully immersive experience answering the needs and wants of players, coaches, teams and fans. Despite being one of the most challenging times in the history of sport due to the global pandemic, there’s never been a better time for sports to embrace technology and innovation. Staying true to our ‘Sport First’ ethos, we’re committed to help sports bounce back by investing in innovative technology and artificial intelligence to equip sports at every level with the tools and expertise to capture, analyze, produce, distribute and commercialize their data and video content.”
