The Oregonian/OregonLive has entered into a Content Licensing and Co-Marketing Agreement with Scorebook Live Inc. that promises to enhance the level of media coverage that can be provided to high school sports and their fans across the State of Oregon.
“We are really excited about the potential of Scorebook Live and their ability to implement a true universal system for the real-time collection of high school sports scores and statistics in Oregon and Southwest Washington,” says Ben Sherman, The Oregonian/OregonLive’s director of sports and trending news. “The Oregonian/OregonLive is looking forward to working with Scorebook Live to encourage schools to use their scoring apps throughout the 2017-18 school year and beyond.”
Scorebook Live will work collaboratively with The Oregonian/OregonLive to provide fans with “live” scoreboards, schedules, league standings, and other exciting content that will be available at http://www.oregonlive.com and https://www.scorebooklive.com. Varsity football and basketball teams using the Scorebook Live scoring apps will have their game updates and scores electronically delivered to The Oregonian/OregonLive, thus eliminating the time consuming process of having coaches “call in” scores and fans being forced to wait until the games are over to check the results.
“We are looking forward to working with Ben Sherman and his team,” stated Dan Beach, founder & CEO at Scorebook Live. “Joining forces with a major media company like The Oregonian gives fans, players and coaches of Oregon High School Sports the opportunity to follow games in real-time throughout each season from any smartphone or computer.”
