The Players’ Tribune

Empowered elite athletes by providing them with a platform to share their stories.

Who: The Players’ Tribune

The Story: By providing the world’s most recognizable athletes a platform to share major announcements and emotional commentary, The Players’ Tribune has flipped the script on traditional sports media.

From Kevin Durant’s decision to join Golden State to their new “Scouting Myself” video series, the content the site provides is informative, inspiring and completely driven by athletes.

Athletes want to hear from other athletes and fans crave stories about their beloved heroes – The Players’ Tribune fulfills those needs.

“What makes The Players’ Tribune better than other sports sites is that everything it publishes is exclusive. If you want to read writing directly from athletes — properly edited and not in 140 character bursts — there’s nowhere else to turn.” – Kif Leswing, writer for Business Insider
