Crowd Network in the UK has launched the Crowd Sports Division that includes a dedicated channel on Apple podcasts.
Tom Fordyce, Creative Director at Crowd Network, said: “We love making sports pods, and we believe we’re leading the way in this competitive sector. It’s not just the sporting achievements of the sporting talent we work with, but how relatable they are to our listeners – and also what they want to do together. Crowd Sports means a Tour de France champion, world champion boxer and elite golfer are all part of the same team, creating shows and communities around them that are long-term projects and brands. We’re looking forward to announcing our next raft of shows and stars to Crowd Sports in the new year.”
Rob Roberts-Facey, Head of Sport at Crowd Network, added:“We’re seeing more and more that creators want ownership of their content, and I think that is a big part of why Crowd is such an attractive proposition to those in the industry. We focus on building shows that creators and fans can connect with, giving a proper say in the development of the show and the community that springs out of it. Ultimately, we are providing a platform that talent can develop their brands through, and reach new audiences. The launch of a dedicated sports divisionwill enable us to push our work in the industry forward even further, and I’m excited for this next step on Crowd’s journey.”
