Finalist in ANZ Sports Tech awards
We’re proud to announce that Blinder is a finalist in the inaugural Australia and New Zealand Sports Technology Awards (ANZSTA).
We’re joined in the final four of the ‘Social & Fan Engagement’ category by:
- Brisbane Heat (from Australia’s Big Bash cricket league)
- Team App (which allows sports teams to quickly create their own smartphone app)
- Sydney Cricket and Sports Ground Trust (which runs both the SCG and Allianz Stadium)
Blinder is the only New Zealand company in our category, but a win for the Brisbane Heat – which is coached by Daniel Vettori and captained by Brendon McCullum – may also result in some Kiwi cheering 😉
Over the last 12 months, Blinder has supported many of the leading players in Australasian sport, including the Australian Football League (AFL), New Zealand Rugby, Netball Australia, Emirates Team New Zealand and the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. Those organisations – as well as teams from the Premier League of English football to the largest colleges in the USA – use Blinder’s technology to easily make their athletes accessible by phone to the media and fans, while also respecting privacy and capturing content.
The ANZSTA winners will be revealed at a gala dinner at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne on August 9, ahead of the Analytics in Sport conference the following day.
