AUSTIN, Texas (Aug. 21, 2015) – FloSports announced today a partnership with Kapwrestling, one of the largest wrestling event organizers in the U.S., to bring its FloArena software to all Kapwrestling events. FloWrestling is the leading source of wrestling news, rankings and coverage across all levels of competition, and the site live streams more than 100 events annually.
FloArena is FloWrestling’s event management software, which allows wrestling tournament and dual meet organizers to offer real-time scoring updates online. The software will bring an unprecedented level of efficiency and clarity to the operation of the event, and provides fans, coaches, and wrestlers an unrivaled experience.
This partnership will allow Kapwrestling to elevate the experience at its wrestling events, particularly for people watching live online and on-demand following the matches, and it offers an end-to-end solution for wrestling event organizers.
“We can’t wait to bring FloArena to all of the events that we manage,” Kapwrestling’s co-founder and CEO Desmond Kaplan said. “In addition, we are excited to work with FloWrestling in the continued growth and development of their FloArena software. Partnering with FloWrestling is a great opportunity to take what we began more than 20 years ago and innovate together to make an end-to-end solution that will be the standard for the next 20 years.”
Kapwrestling has run youth, high school and college wrestling events of all sizes for the past two decades in a dozen states from Ohio to Massachusetts and beyond.
“This is an excellent opportunity for FloWrestling to work with Kapwrestling to scale the FloArena software across more top-tier wrestling events,” FloSports co-founder and CEO Martin Floreani said. “Partnering with such a well-renowned company in the wrestling world is something we couldn’t pass up, and it positions us well for the remainder of 2015 and beyond.”
