The Model: An app for users to know about the latest Soccer scores and news and also to connect with other fans from all over the world.
Startup Doing It: OneFootball(German startup)
What I Like:
Core Idea – Soccer is estimated to have more than 3.5 billion fans around the world and is listed as the most popular sport in the world (source: mostpopularsports.net). An app like this has good scope to grow.
Depth of Information– The depth of information provided is good. Latest news and Updates about players, games, competitions, transfers are presented in a very structured and dashboard like format.
Strong Niche – A Community built around a strong interest like soccer is extremely valuable.
Revenue Model – As is this case with a host of community and new websites, a strong and sustainable revenue model needs to be built.
