Sports Official App Provides Access to 450 Million Spanish Speakers Around the World
RALEIGH, N.C, April 22, 2020 – Silbo, Inc., provider of the leading Go Silbo™ platform connecting sports officials and amateur sports leagues, announced the release of a Spanish-language version of its mobile app for both iOS and Android. The Spanish version is the latest step in fulfilling the company’s mission to grow and expand the available talent pool for sports officiating opportunities.
Paul Dorney, co-founder and CTO of Silbo, said, “The industry of amateur sports officiating has been in decline for decades because of unnecessary barriers and closed doors. There’s been limited access to games for non-English speakers. Amateur sports, like soccer, baseball, basketball, and volleyball, are suffering from a lack of qualified officials. Silbo is creating solutions that provide access and opportunity to everyone. The Spanish version of our app will expand that even further by growing the number of trained, Spanish-speaking sports officials.”
“Sports, and sports officiating, are a global industry,” said Lister Delgado, partner at IDEA Fund Partners and native of Peru. “The Silbo Spanish-language app provides access and economic opportunity to millions of qualified and talented Spanish-speaking men and women worldwide.”
As the industry leader in sports officiating automation, Silbo has grown exponentially since its founding, providing thousands of sports officials access to games in more than 10 sports across 10 states.
About Silbo, Inc.: Based in Raleigh, NC, with offices in Boston, Orlando, Phoenix, and Washington, DC, Silbo™ is the trusted provider of the sports officiating marketplace Go Silbo™. Made for refs by refs, Silbo automates the connection and payment to qualified sports officials simply and conveniently. The Go Silbo app can be found on the App Store and Google Play.
