If football is your thing, you’ll know only too well that it’s not just about what happens on the pitch - fans have an important role to play too. The impact of their support and their loyalty on a club’s success should never be underestimated.
Our latest startup of the week recognises just that and is on a mission to both strengthen the link between football clubs and supporters whilst also helping those football clubs to develop and grow.
Tifosy is an innovative new platform which is empowering and enabling fans to invest in the football clubs that they love.
In a nutshell it’s a fanfunding platform.
Football clubs can create campaigns on Tifosy for anything from funding new training facilities to developing a youth academy. Once the campaign is live, Tifosy will help with its promotion and marketing, to maximise its chances of success.
Just as with crowdfunding platforms, fans can financially support a project in return for a reward.
By enabling fans to further support their favourite clubs in such a practical way, Tifosy is further strengthening the bond between clubs and their supporters. Of course, what it is fundamentally doing is helping football clubs to grow and develop. After all, not all clubs are fortunate enough to have huge corporate backers or benefactors on the sidelines!
The video below explains a little further how it all works:
We doff our proverbial caps to the Tifosy folk for the innovative way that they’re helping the beautiful game…
