Scrimmage is an app that helps sports bettors gain an edge by sourcing the best odds in the market, automatically syncing their real betting history, providing instant access to price changing news, and allowing for actionable notifications when prices shift.
Scrimmage operates in the sports betting industry as the broker between the sportsbook and the sports bettor. The sports betting market is new, quickly growing, and very inefficient. We greatly simplify the sports betting process, from getting the bettor the best price available and telling them where to place the bet, to tracking a complete history of all of their bets from all of their sportsbook accounts in one place. Additionally, our provide content aggregated from over 2000 sports news sources that pairs with the ability to make quick betting decisions. We will expand our content offerings in future developments with a freelance sports blog that will allow writers and content creators to monetize their work.
The process for placing and tracking a sports bet is highly inefficient and time consuming. For bettors with more than 1 sportsbook account, which is a majority of sports bettors, they need to separately check each of their sportsbook accounts to determine where the best price is available and manually record the details of the bet. By the time this is done, the price has already moved and is no longer available. If you were an active stock trader you would never accept this, and sports bettors are beginning to demand the same conveniences.
Scrimmage greatly simplifies the sports betting process. We automatically sync data from each of the bettor’s sportsbook accounts, directing the bettor to the sportsbook with the best price while simultaneously recording the details of the bet onto our platform. We are the start and end of every bet, one ledger for their entire betting history.
Initially, Scrimmage’s revenue model will be affiliate marketing with top U.S. sportsbooks. We are already licensed in the majority of states with legal online sports betting and already have contracts with some of the largest sportsbooks in the U.S. These sportsbooks will pay us around $200 for each sign-up we bring them, and our app and website are geared toward maximizing this number. It is in the sports bettor’s best interest to sign-up with as many sportsbook accounts possible. In the future we intend to expand our content offerings, allowing independent writers to receive subscription and advertisement revenue, with Scrimmage receiving a commission from this.
Traction & Customers
Scrimmage’s app is pre-launch, while the desktop has been open to a small number of beta testers for the past 2 month. Up until this point, the team has done a tremendous job with our organic social media following, with over 120k followers across all channels. We have done this by providing content that is related to what will be available on the application and we will continue to grow our reach in this way. Our product was created by sports bettors and has been continuously tested by sports bettors throughout the development process.
Investments up until this point include about $250k from a combination of founder’s capital, friends and family, and an investment from the Techstars Sports Accelerator
Scrimmage will be offering a SAFE agreement as described below in this Regulation Crowdfunding offering:
$6M valuation cap

Scrimmage’s addressable market is 40M current online sports bettors in the U.S. This is expected to grow to 80M over the next 1-3 years as online sports betting legalizes in the U.S. Roughly half of these bettors are already using tools that help improve their sports betting process and we know there is demand for the product we have created.
Because of this growing market, there will be about 20M sportsbook app downloads in 2022. Sportsbooks are willing to pay on average $200 per affiliate sign-up which means an addressable market size in 2022 of $4B.
By 2025, we estimate that we could have 3M users (3.75% of the future expected online sports betting market), and account for 25k sportsbook sign-ups (0.125% of 2022 sportsbook app downloads), which would result in $5M in annual revenue.
We are confident that the future of sports betting will mimic the trajectory of retail stock investing. The bettors will begin and have already begun to take sports betting more seriously, looking to utilize tools that save them time and help them make more money. The process for placing and managing sports bets in highly inefficient and Scrimmage’s sole focus is to simplify that process so the user will decide that we are a product they can’t live without. We want to completely eliminate wasted time for the bettor and give them all the tools they need to maximize their profit. Our competitors provide some of these tools, but not to the extent that Scrimmage does, and not at the same price point. Their thinking is more antiquated, providing things like “top picks” and in house content that serves their own agenda over the bettor. Bettors want to be involved in the decision making process and want a community around them. That is Scrimmage.
