About Mobile Sports Report

Welcome new readers to Mobile Sports Report (MSR), the premier site for news and analysis of stadium technology, including Wi-Fi, DAS, Digital Signage, CRM, and Sports Social Media. This is part of our charter to aggressively cover the intersection of mobile technologies and sports in an unbiased, editorial fashion.

What does Mobile Sports mean? In an age when just about every pro athlete is on Twitter and just about everyone has a cell phone with Internet access, sports fans are closer to the action than they ever have been before. But even as fans log in to social/mobile sports sites by the millions, and use their devices for information at stadiums, figuring out how to make this new relationship successful for teams, schools, vendors advertisers and broadcasters is still a work in progress.

That’s where Mobile Sports Report comes in — to help identify the new entrants and new business models, and to find winners, losers and interesting stories along the way. Our STADIUM TECH REPORT series of quarterly long-form publications is the premier place for stadium technology professionals to hear from their peers about the latest deployments of stadium technologies in all major sports venues.

Mobile Sports Report is led by edtior and founder Paul Kapustka, and is an independent, editorially focused publication that uses traditional journalistic methods to break stories, offer informed takes and reflect on trends at the intersection of mobile technology, social media and sports.

Bookmark this site and get ready for the mobile sports revolution! We’ll be there to provide you with a front-row seat.

PAUL KAPUSTKA, Editor in Chief

Long before he started his own wireless-industry analysis site, Paul Kapustka was a sports writer for the Boulder (Colo.) Daily Camera, where he covered everything from Super Bowls to neighborhood 5k races. Mobile Sports Report is the ultimate combination of Kapustka’s knowledge and excitement for sports and mobile technology. Mostly it is an excuse to expense the bill for watching NFL games on a phone. A longer and perhaps more serious bio can be found at this link. A Chicago native, Kapustka follows da Bears, da Hawks, da Bulls and da Cubs from sunny San Mateo, Calif. In Theo we trust!
