Hello, Product Hunt! It’s Erik from Fanoob. We started this journey several years ago, because we were fed up with the limitations of group text chat conversations with friends and family around the live sports we love. After talking with others, we quickly realized we weren’t the only ones that experienced this problem, so we set out to build a solution which has become Fanoob. Personally, I really like that I can group my friends into different circles based on the type of friends they are and if I miss any live events I can later catch up on what was said and even add to the conversation around an event later if I want. I hope you will enjoy it as much as we do and we can’t wait to hear your feedback.

@nickchuckwalter Thanks for the kind feedback. For the backend we are using PHP with MySQL and AWS Media Services.

It's like a hub for fans as I can see. Actually, it looks interesting conceptually but I don't understand what makes it sports-related? I mean, only a list of events and games? Is it gonna be possible to observe statistics (like here https://777score.co.uk/ if you don't mind) at least or I dunno something else? I can't get it from your description. I mean, it looks like a common messenger where chat-rooms are named after any sports events and that's all.

@crimson_cursor - Thanks for your question. Yes it's a hub for fans to interact in private invite only rooms around a specific event. We support all the 5 major sports in the US (NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, NCAA Football and NCAA Basketball). So when an event is created for a specific game from any of those 5 leagues during the game we offer live scores for that specific game at the top of the private chat room and in addition from the chat room any user can click on the link below the live score to get into more specific statistics about the game. You can also create Custom Live Events (private chat rooms) around anything, but for those we won't offer real-time statistics. At this time we only offer statistics for the leagues we support. We will look to expand the leagues we offer as we grow and bring in relevant news etc.
