About Silbo

Advocacy. Community. Technology.

WHY WE STARTED

A Community Built on Officiating

Silbo was formed around one simple question: How do sports officials get games? The answer was more complicated (and flawed) than we expected so we decided to build a better solution. Now, thousands of sports officials can use the free Go Silbo™ app to choose when, where, and for what wage they will officiate. At the same time, game providers are able to more efficiently schedule, pay, and communicate with officials.

AN INDUSTRY IN FLUX

We’re Making Sports Better

Silbo is a digital marketplace directly connecting sports officials with amateur sports games. Traditionally, the process of recruiting, scheduling, and paying sports officials was analog, inefficient, opaque, and resulted in a fragmented supply of referees. Nearly 10% of games nationwide are being cancelled due to a shortage of officials.

THE NEXT GENERATION

Rethinking the Way We Play

Silbo is on a mission to improve amateur sports. We connect game providers and officials simply and conveniently, while also developing the next generation of sports officials.

We’ve built game-changing technology to:

  • Advocate for officials’ wages, working conditions, and scheduling.
  • Provide more opportunities for sports officials nationwide.
  • Train and activate the next generation of officials.
