StatBroadcast concludes 2011-2012 season with over 1.25 million pages served

TEMPE, ARIZ. -- With the end of the College World Series last night, StatBroadcast successfully concluded the 2011-2012 collegiate sports season, marking its sixth full year of operations as a stats technology provider for collegiate athletic events. Across all of its platforms this past year, StatBroadcast served up more than 1.25 million stats pages to an estimated 800,000 visitors between August 2011 and June 2012 at more than 3400 sporting events.

StatBroadcast experienced unprecedented growth over the past year, more than tripling the number of athletic departments, conferences and tournaments/bowls that use its service. As well, StatBroadcast completed its first full year of providing media stats feeds for NCAA D1, D2 and D3 championship events via its NCAA media stats portal. For the third straight year, feeds from the BCS National Championship, the Men's Final Four and the Men's College World Series were all carried live on the StatBroadcast network, providing the working press with a real-time feed from the events. This past year, StatBroadcast also provided stats for high school athletic events in Kansas, Alabama, Texas and Indiana.

StatBroadcast also set another milestone this year when over 9000 unique visitors logged in to watch Northwest Missouri State take on Midwestern State in the opening round of the NCAA Division 2 Football Tournament, shattering the company's previous highs for viewership of a single event.

Also this year, StatBroadcast introduced its GameCast widget feature, which was featured on the home pages of both the Sugar Bowl and the Fiesta Bowl during their four bowl games in the winter, and the Stat N Chat feature, which was introduced in the fall and adopted by several schools, giving fans a new and immersive interactive game experience. This summer, StatBroadcast is rolling out several new features, including twitter integration, real-time twitter feeds and on-the-fly PDFs of box scores, as well as expanding its network capacity to serve larger quantities of traffic at even higher speeds.
