From basketball to football, boxing and beyond, Barstool continues to revolutionize the live sports broadcasting experience with a unique formula that can’t be replicated on any other platform.
Furthering its influence on the Gen Z audience, Barstool dominates when it comes to college sports content. In December, the Barstool engine will be behind the full production of the ‘Barstool Sports Arizona Bowl,’ radically altering how fans consume college football. Each week, the Barstool College Football show draws in fans across every social platform to watch Dave Portnoy, Big Cat, Kayce Smith and Brandon Walker dissect all the major college games of the week.
Last week, Barstool launched TwoYay, its proprietary platform that connects college athletes to brands and advertisers. TwoYay will always be free for college athletes and Barstool will not take any cut of their deal, which will make TwoYay the most cost-efficient platform for advertisers, and provide the best opportunities for participating college athletes. By the end of the year, TwoYay is expected to be the most comprehensive user base of college athletes available within any marketplace by pulling from the Barstool Athletes network, which already includes over 150,000 college athletes across every division, sport, and state.
