The Tickr is a sports lifestyle site published by sports enthusiasts who’s dedication to sports fandom is unrivaled. Their tagline says it all “If you can’t be a professional athlete, you might as well blog like one”. What does blogging like a professional athlete entail? To The Tickr it involves a commitment to going beyond the scores and stats - to stuff you actually want to read, see and watch as a sports fan. Let’s face it, to a sports junkie - sports fashion, business, memorabilia, and even scandals are just as tasty as their home team’s playoff positioning.
Since launching at the beginning of 2010, The Tickr has become the de facto sports destination within the Tumblr community. Given it’s rapid growth, it was clear early on, that The Tickr filled a sports void on Tumblr comparable to that of Shaq’s shoe size.
Through its success, The Tickr has developed a respected voice amongst sports hipsters - one that can unarguably be leveraged by authentic sports brands looking to advance their street credentials.
