Why are our lists unique?

Everything --- all in one location

They also include emails, pulled from athletes' Instagram accounts. The combination of information provides a starting point for agencies, companies and platforms looking to connect with, and partner with, athletes.

Twice-per-month updates

Our team tracks athletes' follower counts and growth rates on Instagram and Twitter. We provide the fully-updated databases via email to our customers every two weeks. As a result, many significant trends become apparent, including: athletes' whose follower counts are exploding, whose are stagnant and who could potentially provide the most value/ROI.

In addition to social-media accounts and statistics, users can identify which athletes they want to partner with by a variety of factors in our lists: their year in school, the city they grew up in, the position they play and the conference/state they play in.
