All player info and their progress is accessible on the platform, so that investors are able to mitigate where to put their their money. This also provides professional scouters with an opportunity to look for young talents and monitor their development.

The platform features a video streaming module that provides clubs with their own channels to make content and earn money on a pay per view basis from advertisers. In case you are not into football, football related content receives millions of views on Youtube, with fan channels having more subscribers than professional team’s channels. Clubs receive 70% of the income, 30% is taken as a platform fee. Users get rewarded for watching ads as well.
