Summer is upon us and, for many, that means an increase in league sports. However, between volleyball, kickball, softball, and more, league fees and the obligatory victory celebration (or for some, a consoling beverage) after games can become quite expensive. And trying to find a bar to sponsor your team can become a hassle. That is where Peter Brown comes in.
Launched in April of 2012, RecSpon offers a platform for teams to find sponsorship from neighborhood bars. Brown, CEO of RecSpon, asked the audience of a recent tech event, “Are you sick of calling dozens of bars and venues to sponsor your recreational sports team? If so, the solution is RecSpon.” By answering three simple questions, RecSpon outputs a list of bars that would offer a sponsorship. Those questions are:
- What neighborhood are you playing in?
- What sport are you playing?
- Which day of the week does your league meet?
Each sponsorship is different, allowing you to find the best fit for your team. Some bars offer to pay a percentage, or even all of the league fees, and most of the bars offer team specials on food and drinks.
Currently RecSpon is connected with over 32 bars in 8 different Chicago neighborhoods. Sponsorships are offered year round and include a large variety of sports. Brown hopes to expand to other neighborhoods and suburbs in the near future.
