SidelineApp is unique from any other live streaming platform in that it also offers users video on demand and integrated social feeds.

How does the school benefit from SidelineApp?

SidelineApp opens up opportunities for schools wanting to engage parents and the wider community in the development of their grassroots sports programmes. As well as offering existing fans an effective way to support their sports teams from wherever they are, our technology allows schools to widen their supporter base via vastly increased exposure.
