The NFL has spent years building its online presence for fans around the world, but the league has struggled with how to grow revenue on that platform.
According to an August report from the Sports Business Journal, the league spent $1.6 billion on its online operation in 2017.
But the team behind Cosgrave, which has raised more than $1 billion in venture funding, is building its own version of the league’s website.
Cosgrave’s team plans to launch its own online platform in 2018 and 2019, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The platform will have “no front-end, front-facing or front-loading” features, according the report.
In a press release, Cosgrave announced that its “multi-platform” approach would allow for “a seamless, seamless transition from the website to a digital-only product.”
Cosgrave will be the first professional sports league to build its own website.
Its website will include a front-page news article with a photo, game schedule, standings and more, and will include “a deep history of all NFL games as well as links to relevant video and photo content,” according to the company.
The site will also include the NFL’s official Twitter account, the NFL team’s website, a “snapshot of NFL history and highlights,” and the NFL player profile.
The team is also building a sports app for iOS, Android and Windows phone.
The company will also offer a free trial version of its website to NFL fans that includes all the content on its website, according a release from the company in April.
The launch of the NFL site is part of a broader push by the league to boost digital revenues by making its platform more customizable.
In the fall of 2017, the agency that represents NFL teams announced that it would expand its digital platform to include a full-blown website.
The move followed a similar move in the fall for the New York Jets.
In March, the team announced that they would launch a site dedicated to its “core digital properties,” including social media, social and video.
In May, the New England Patriots also announced a plan to launch a website dedicated to “the New England experience,” which would include their “game day experience” and “NFL Live.”
