New York, NY: The American 7s Football League (A7FL®), one of sports’ fastest growing and most exciting new leagues, has announced a partnership with OpenSponsorship, the world’s largest two-sided sports sponsorship marketplace. OpenSponsorship will assist with securing event and organization-wide sponsorships, as well as activate promotional and business partnerships. 

 The A7FL has pioneered a completely new football format – 7-on-7 without helmets or hard-shell pads – that provides the toughness and excitement that fans love while significantly reducing concussions and other repetitive head impacts. Not only has the league proven to be safer for players, but it’s also a hit with fans. In just the last two seasons, the league has grown to 16 teams and to over 500,000 social media followers and 100 million video views with 21 live games distributed both online (including both Facebook Watch and Twitch) and via national cable TV (ELEVEN Sports on DirecTV, U-verse, Fios).

Now entering its sixth season, the A7FL has drawn tremendous press coverage from outlets including Sports Illustrated, The Sporting News, Bleacher Report, and ESPN. “The A7FL is extremely excited to welcome OpenSponsorship to our team,” said league Co-Founder & CEO Sener Korkusuz. “We’re grateful for the vital support of our existing sponsors and we look forward to developing new and creative partnerships with brands nationwide.”

“OpenSponsorship is thrilled to partner with A7FL, the league has experienced tremendous growth over the past 5 seasons and are poised to continue the upward trend. OpenSponsorship will help to bring the incredible benefits A7FL has to offer to a wide range of brands. With distribution on Twitch, Facebook Live, and Eleven Sports we are confident that partnership with A7FL will help brands reach a new and highly attractive consumer base,” says Ishveen Anand – CEO and Founder of OpenSponsorship.

For the A7FL’s upcoming Spring 2020 season, two live games per week – featuring exclusive interactive content and functionality – will air on A7FL’s Twitch channel: Twitch.tv/A7FL.  The season and A7FL Live on Twitch kicks off April 19 with the Championship on July 19, 2020, as the PA Immortalz look to defend their 2019 title.
