DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Blue Star Sports is rapidly growing and today announces the acquisition of PrimeTime Sports, its 4th acquisition in 90 days. PrimeTime Sports is a premier sports-event management company. As one of the most recognized basketball, soccer, and 7-on-7 football tournament companies in America, it currently manages about 168 events on 51 weekends and holds a spot as one of the top 5 basketball event operators in the country. The combination of sport events management with Blue Star Sports' existing product portfolio offers a more advanced suite of tools to simplify the management of youth sports for club organizations, coaches, parents, volunteers and players.
The Blue Star Sports vision from the beginning has been to connect all the technologies and services in the market and invest in the development of new products with a laser-focused goal to provide a single solution to simplify the management of youth sports organizations globally. Keeping the customer experience as the driver for their strategy, Blue Star Sports continues to evaluate and anticipate the needs in the industry, and there are already more solutions under development that will be introduced soon.
While individually payments, websites, registration and performance capabilities are not unique features in the market, the way Blue Star Sports combines them into a comprehensive solution is a matchless product in the industry. Now, with the additional feature of sport-events management, customers can truly rely on Blue Star Sports for every aspect of a successful sport season.
“Blue Star Sports has been aggressively growing since the beginning. We have no interest in slowing down and maintain our position as the #1 authority in youth sports. Our goal is to combine the best companies in the youth sports industry and create one multifaceted product for our current and future customers,” says Rob Wechsler, Blue Star Sports Founder & CEO. “If you want to host a tournament or sporting event, now you can rely on Blue Star Sports for a complete solution and a professional customer experience.”
“We’ve grown exponentially over the last 16 years, from initially hosting a single basketball tournament, to an entire sports management company. I’m excited about how much more we can do now that we are part of Blue Star Sports,” said PrimeTime Sports CEO David Stephens. “Our two brands share many of the same core values and joining this family will add esteemed proficiency to our already great competences.”
