NORTH DEVON, UK – January 6th, 2019 – Sportizzle Ltd is proud to announce the launch of its new social media platform which aims to bring together the sporting world like never before, accessible via website/mobile devices at www.Sportizzle.com.
Sportizzle is a sports focused social media platform which allows users to contribute to communities of over 127 different sports. Sportizzle launches with a unique content personalisation feature that filters out all unwanted information and presents the user with only the sports content they want to see. By selecting their favourite sports, the platform customises the users experience to only show relevant content; this includes within the main feed, jobs, advertisements and contacts.
“In a world where traditional social media content is becoming irrelevant and cluttered, Sportizzle serves the needs and desires of people who want news, views and opinion only from the sports they are interested in. We have created a platform that empowers the user to decide what content they want to see whilst still retaining the features of a traditional social media platform. The platform’s sole focus is Sport, if it’s not sport related it doesn’t belong on Sportizzle” said Bryan Steers, CEO and Founder of Sportizzle Ltd.

The unique social feed brings together content from across a vast array of credited sources to present a user with headlines that they can choose to read in further detail from the source. No longer do our users have to visit multiple sites to get the latest news, it’s delivered to their feed, alongside content from their favourite bloggers, sports competitors and sporting companies”

Users can change their preference at any point and the platform with re-customise the content.
