Company Overviews

About SportsXpress

SportsXpress is a grassroots, multi-media publishing platform dedicated exclusively to the community sports lifestyle! We’re all about the athletes, their teams, coaches, families, volunteers and fans. We publish real life stories and include all ages and skill levels.

Our business plan was derived from the evident lack of coverage of local organized sports. Through discussions with numerous groups and associations we also discovered those involved in local sports view it as more of a "lifestyle" - an important part of their identity. Later, we discovered the local sports scene is one of the largest lifestyle segments in any community and across the country.

In the spring of 2008 we launched a test model and have been developing the playbook ever since.

We are excited to invite you to be a part of this distinct lifestyle - one that we call a “hidden economy”, and look forward to working with you on developing your winning game plan.
