SidelineApp is an innovative new videostreaming service, designed by Kiwis for the benefit of grassroots sports and their supporters. By combining world-class livestreaming technology with video on demand and integrated social features, SidelineApp ensures sports fans never miss a game and schools and clubs have greater control of their content.

One of SidelineApp’s primary aims is to keep content affordable for all supporters. Individual matches can generally be purchased for $5.00, while full access to most bigger events or tournament are available for the Early Bird price of $9.95 (normal price $14.95). Users can access their chosen game or event LIVE or On Demand for up to seven days.

To view a game or event, simply click on the sport, tournament/event, school or team you want to watch.

Register with your email address, purchase an access pass and you’re good to go, with access to LIVE and On Demand video content for the duration of the pass you purchased.

Absolutely! But sometimes calendar clashes, weather issues, travel requirements or family sickness make it impossible to be there. With SidelineApp, no one ever need miss a game.

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

SidelineApp has formed technical partnerships with a number of global industry leaders to provide world-class streaming and security, promising users the best possible viewing and user experience.

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. Schools also benefit financially, with a percentage of every access pass donated to the school to reinvest in its sports programmes.
