Our mission

Our mission is simple; we want to make the the world more active through sports.

We hate going to the gym, but we love sports. All kinds of sports. They are fun, they are competitive and they don't feel like a "workout". Being active shouldn't be something you have to do, it should be something you want to do.

Sporty wants to make it incredibly simple to discover sports activities happening nearby, as well as the people that want to play them. Whether you're going to play a casual game of soccer and need more players, or want to find a new tennis partner, Sporty can help.

The company is run by Christian Ringnes Jr. and Mathias Mikkelsen.
