Still looking for “the one?” Well, the NFL Network’s Rich Eisen might be able to help.
Eisen partnered with Nike recently to develop a dating app exclusively for sports fans. The app is called “Free Agent” and is described on the iTunes app store as being “the OkCupid or Match.com for sports fans.”
There are hundreds of millions of people using dating services on a daily basis, and Eisen saw a gap in the market where sports could intersect and potentially bring some avid fans together. The former ESPN anchor noted his own life as a perfect example in a recent interview with Forbes, explaining that he met his wife Suzy Schuster while he was working at the worldwide leader.
”My wife and I met in the newsroom of ESPN (which technically makes our children ESPN babies) so it hit me: without sports, I may never have met my wife. I wanted to create an app that would provide the same type of meeting place, whether it’s mobile, in the stadium or at a college campus.”
Check out some snaps of the app from one excitable user below.
