AW: Our business model is still the same (freemium) even though we are exploring additional source of revenues, mainly related to the organization of events. In terms of technology, we are working on a lot on new features to provide sports fans with the best user experience.
FS: What plans do you have to take advantage of events such as March Madness, MLB, etc?
AW: We are currently working with bars to create special events and promote them through the site. March Madness has been highlighted on the site with a special event page. We recently want to gather people from our community that we call “Chasers” from our website, social media and meetup group “Sports fans in bars – New York City”.
FS: How was the Super Bowl for you guys?
AW: The Super Bowl was a great moment for us! We co-hosted a big event at a bar called Tonic East, a multi-level Rooftop Sports bar and Restaurant which stands out with its one of a kind design and decor. Everyone had a lot of fun! It was an amazing opportunity to gather Chasers and personally meet with them.

AW: We have big growth expectation, especially with the World Cup coming up and our plan to expand to additional cities. We are working hard in develop our brand awareness in New York and eventually target US major cities.
FS: Most importantly, hat has feedback from users been like?
AW: We received great feedbacks from users. People think that the website is really useful and allow them save a lot of time. Some Seahawks and Broncos fans were really happy to find the official Seahawks here in New York for the Super Bowl. Furthermore, people really like our mission: to connect sports fans together. We aim to develop a website that is always more social so people can meet and share the same passion all together.
