Our Power List ranking was the latest in a series of recognition that WSC Sports has received in the latter part of 2021. In October WSC Sports won the award for ‘Best Use of Technology’ in the ‘Fan Experience’ category at the 2021 Hashtag Sports Awards as well as the award for ‘Outstanding OTT Experience‘ at SVG Europe’s 2021 Sports TV Awards.
To mark this recent flurry of industry acknowledgement WSC Sports Co-Founder and CEO, Daniel Shichman shared these words:
“2021 was an amazing year of growth for WSC Sports and we’re delighted that in the past couple of months we started receiving some amazing recognition for our efforts. We won two prestigious awards for new products that we launched and in addition to this we were recognised as one of the most influential brands in the world of sports technology.
The world of sports is undergoing a revolution in the way that fans consume content. There’s a sharp shift from watching full games, to watching short, customized videos, available anytime on any platform, bringing new challenges for broadcasters and rights owners.
We are proud to be one of the world’s leading technology companies in building the next generation of content consumption and plan to continue our rapid growth in the years to come. On this occasion I would like to thank our amazing team, all over the world, for their professional work, dedication, quality and for their amazing spirit. I’m most proud of the culture we have built and continue to develop.”
