Launched a few years ago, Swish Live is the application dedicated to sports lovers! Available for a multitude of sports, it allows to put forward the clubs wishing a better exposure thanks to its live broadcasting of matches!
But what is Swish Live?
The app was created in 2017, by two co-founders Clement Gasner and Jean Ferret Chabé. Both passionate about sports and technology, they wanted to create something innovative to mix their passions. That’s when the idea of broadcasting live sports matches for semi-professional and amateur clubs emerged !
The application has been a great success and has not stopped being rewarded. Indeed, the two creators have received :
- The “digital prize” at the 30th edition of the Sportel Awards in 2019.
- The First Prize of the Jury of the Start me up 2017 competition.

- They were also the winner of the Connected Sport award at the 16th digital Economy Trophy 2019.
Swish Live for more visibility:
The application is intended for clubs, federations, leagues, parents of players. The matches are mainly dedicated to semi-professional and amateur clubs ! The application allows to increase the notoriety of the clubs and thus to monetize their matches with partners and by inserting advertisements in the lives.
In short, it is an innovative tool to help clubs get more visibility. In addition, fans can follow players performances and exploits from a distance ! A real asset for the fan experience, sometimes more complex to develop within semi-professional and amateur clubs.
Swish Live also works in collaboration with the French basketball federation, allowing affiliated clubs to get discounts on subscriptions.
How does it work?
The application is simple and effective, has various features, and supports clubs in their media development !

In addition, the broadcasting is done in HD, the name of the teams and the color of the jerseys are directly embedded in the image. There is also a commentator area, where post-game interviews take place. It is also possible to select the highlights of the matches thanks to the Time Capsule tool that instantly replays them.
