Seattle, WA (June 2017) – The Seattle Times has entered into a Content Licensing Agreement with Scorebook Live, Inc. that will create a revolutionary change in regard to how high school content is created, published and distributed to fans across the region.
“We are excited about this opportunity to work with Scorebook Live and enhance our high-school sports content on seattletimes.com,” The Seattle Times Sports Editor Paul Barrett said. “Covering high-school sports is important to us, and providing live updates along with scores, standings and schedules is a key part of our mission.”
“The Metro League is excited to work with and use the Scorebook Live technology to better promote our student-athletes educational based athletic programs. Our fans are going to love how easy it will be to follow our teams and players throughout the upcoming sports season,” Executive Director of Athletics Eric McCurdy. “Working with Dan Beach, the team at Scorebook Live and our partners at The Seattle Times, it is very important for our student-athletes, coaches, families and communities.”
Scorebook Live will work collaboratively with The Seattle Times to provide fans with “live” scoreboards, schedules, league standings, and other exciting content that will be available at http://www.seattletimes.com/ and https://www.scorebooklive.com. High School football and basketball teams using the Scorebook Live apps will have their game updates and scores electronically delivered to The Seattle Times, thus eliminating the time consuming process of having coaches “call in” scores and fans being forced to wait until the games are over to check the results.
“Scorebook Live gives high school sports teams the ability to engage their fans in a manner that pro and college fans have become accustomed to… in real-time and from multiple sources,” says Scorebook Live Founder & CEO Dan Beach, “We are honored that both The Seattle Times and Metro League’s leadership immediately saw the value that working with us can bring to high school sports teams and their fans.”
