“All of our clients have made profits on their live streaming in every season that we've worked with them, some more than others. Some clients are more committed to it, put on more games, spend more time marketing than others, but the clients who are pushing it are definitely making significant money and, and they're very, very happy.”
Founded in 2004, Sporting Limerick set out to become the digital media portal and production arm for all things sport in Limerick. In 2019 this lead to the formation of StreamSport Ireland, launched to provide sports leagues, federations and clubs the ability to live stream to fans around the world. This generated significant subscription and pay per view revenue for the content owners. Fast forward to today, they work with 50+ organizations including Munster Rugby, Cricket Ireland and 15+ GAA clients.
In early 2020 with fans missing events and sports struggling for revenue due to the pandemic, StreamSport took the opportunity to utilize JWP’s subscription and paywall platform to build new revenue streams for their clients across the Irish sports market. This market continues to thrive today with live streaming complementing in-stadium attendance. It is seen as a complementary revenue stream that takes the content worldwide.
