Football entertainment for the future
Our vision is to be the most loved digital sports brand, by blurring the line between games and the real world and bringing fun and excitement to everyone who loves sports.
Our mission is to build and develop the most loved sports companion apps, mixing elements of management simulation with real world elements and events, making it more fun to watch a game and as a consequence, almost impossible for fans to watch a game without also using our apps.
Why we got started
Fantasy sports is hot. But surprisingly stale. Not much has happened in the industry for the past 10 years. Time to shake it up a bit. TrophyRoom is fantasy sports 2.0.
The people behind TrophyRoom comprise a nice cross-section of the football community: die hard fans, casual spectators, tech evangelists, product and marketing masterminds and so on. We all came together because we share the same vision and… simply because we like each other.
We believe in keeping things simple and removing nonsense rules and bureaucracy that get in the way of true greatness. We’re a small, fast and location-agnostic team that take rapid decisions and build what we build fueled by passion.
Seed funded and ready to go
We’ve done a couple of seed investment rounds and are currently in a soft launch stage in a few test markets.
