Your Best Fantasy Sports League Season Starts With Video Conferencing

December 03, 2020


Football, soccer, baseball, basketball – create a fantasy sports team that lights you up with free video conferencing. And now with technology that’s readily available, affordable, and easy to use, connecting with friends from around the world is at your fingertips.

By incorporating audio and video capabilities, not only do you uplevel engagement and entertainment, this becomes an opportunity to connect with people on the other side of the screen. Adding video raises the stakes, spikes competition, and creates camaraderie around scheduled events.

Here are a few ways to drum up more fun and excitement:

Bring The Draft Party Online
After everyone’s done their research, use video conferencing to convene in the online meeting room and battle it out for your top pics! Watch everyone’s facial expressions as the pickings get slim or there’s competition over a specific player. Host it all online or have a draft party in person with friends from out of town streaming into your feed.

Create A Podcast

Sports fans, if you love chatting about all things sports, create a podcast that brings in listeners and keeps them updated with this week’s or month’s events. This is a great way to keep everyone in the league informed or get certain league members breaking down details. From here, you can create more content like “behind-the-scenes” footage, quick clips for social media feeds, and more!

Cry As A Team
When the game takes a downturn, you’re going to want to commiserate with friends or yell out the referee’s questionable call. Turn on the video and audio to catch everyone crying at the same time...

Celebrate Victory Together

…or jumping up and down thrilled with the outcome! Video conferencing optimizes how everyone views the same screen. Everyone can watch and bond over the same content from miles apart.

The 4 Video Conferencing Features You Need To Have For The Best Season Yet:

  1. Online Whiteboard
    It’s perfect for sharing files, links, and media of selected players when teams are first being chosen. You can make comments, use text chat, and share strategies in real-time.
  2. Meeting Recording
    Can’t make a game? Hit record to save now and watch later. Kick it up a notch by creating a newsletter and sending out every recording at the end of the week (or day) to keep the crew in the loop.
  3. Speaker and Gallery Views
    Zoom into people’s facial reactions when they’re speaking or view everyone’s thumbnails in the session. This is a great way to tune into the group’s energy and presence.
  4. Mobile App
    Never miss a match or discussion when you can still join in using your mobile device from anywhere – at any time.

Want to give yourself the best chance at winning the season? Integrate technology that brings you together and ramps up the competition for more fun online.
