The Sports Tech Startup of the Year

VenueTwin Stadium Exterior

We’re delighted to share that OnePlan has won the Sports Technology Awards Group Startup of the Year grand prize!

The STA Startup Awards celebrate the best young technology businesses in sport. This is a global award in recognition of our innovative event planning technology that improves how sports clubs, organisations and venues operate. The judges cited OnePlan’s “cutting-edge technology, product market fit, vision and potential.”

The Post-Covid Solution for Sport

OnePlan’s interactive event and venue planning tool enables sports organisations to transform their operational and commercial planning, following the challenges of covid. OnePlan’s sports tech, which includes an interactive Seating Plan tool, simplifies and improves event planning for any sport, club and venue. 

Post-covid, live events have a clear need for OnePlan's technology.

The STA judges observed that “OnePlan’s proposition was a compelling mix of cutting-edge technology, product market fit, vision and potential. We could have happily worked with any one of the shortlisted businesses but live events, post-covid, have a clear need for OnePlan’s technology.”

Fully Interactive 3D 'Venue Twins'

OnePlan can be used by event planners of any size, from International Federations to Stadium and Arena owners, as well as sports teams and individuals worldwide. Over 1,500 events have already been planned on OnePlan, including for the NBA, English Premier League and many more sports with customers including Chelsea FC, Arsenal FC, Brooklyn Nets and the Chicago Marathon.

Our fully interactive 3D ‘venue twins’ enable any stadium or arena to be accessed 24/7 virtually. This massively reduces the need for site visits, bringing huge cost and sustainability benefits.

The STA judges praised OnePlan, saying “In the new normal era, this is gold for event planners.”

Celebrating Sports Tech Innovation

We’d like to thank the STA, its judges and Sightline Ventures for the prize. We’d also like to celebrate the other nominated startups from around the world who are progressing the sports industry through their technology innovation. 

Our CEO, Paul Foster, said: “We’re very grateful to have won this prestigious award. There are some incredible startups in the Sports Technology sector who have been innovating through a hugely challenging 12 months for our industry. Thank you to the OnePlan team and our amazing clients all over the world.”

In the new normal era, this is Gold for Event Planners.
