CROWDYNEWS LAUNCHES LIVEGRANDSTAND, A UGC MATCH COMMENTARY SOLUTION FOR SPORTS PUBLISHERS

LiveGrandstand Combines Real-time Social Content with Live Text-based Game Coverage for Increased Fan Engagement

Groningen, NL – 17 May 2017 – Crowdynews, the world’s largest AI-driven user-generated content (UGC) curation platform, today announced it has launched a new offering created specifically for sports publishers, called LiveGrandstand. LiveGrandstand is a comprehensive live sports commentary solution that combines real-time match commentary, live user-generated social content, player and club statistics, match news, and much more into a one-stop digital experience for sports fans following a particular match or game.

For sports publishers, LiveGrandstand automates the process of finding, filtering, and publishing an integrated stream of social content and match commentary, enabling them to engage fans and followers before, during, and after a match. The solution allows publishers to:

  • Leverage Crowdynews’ robust AI-driven curation engine to deliver an automated, safe, and real-time live social stream, showcasing club accounts, sports outlets, and fans from across multiple social networks, including Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook
  • Weave social content into the live play-by-play commentary, providing an immersive, rich, and integrated experience
  • Ensure the safety & relevance of the social content stream, suitable for any age audience and targeted to the fans’ interests, through profanity filtering and white- and blacklisting

“Sports clubs, athletes, and fans are some of the most active users on social media, and we want to help sports publishers make the most of that user-generated content during match time without the overhead of manual work,” said Edwin Kuipers, co-founder and CTO, Crowdynews. “LiveGrandstand helps marry live UGC with text-based play-by-play commentary in an automated fashion, and at scale, and opens up the possibilities for complete reporting on matches to virtually any sports publisher.”
