The global sports market is of gigantic size and potential, with an expected turnover of $5.2B (approx €4.36B) in 2024. In this context, a Dutch investment fund that specialises in sports technology, ISG Groeifonds, has announced the acquisition of Dotcomsport, a sports club management platform.
According to a statement from Gerard Helms, CEO of ISG Groeifonds, “Any company to be acquired (by ISG Groeifonds) will have to add value to our product portfolio. The company must be close to the club and athlete, in other words: with your feet on the (football) grass! With this buy-and-build strategy, we are able to stay at the forefront of the digital transformation of the sports market.”
