EveryTeam.com expires after being purchased for $35K in 2018 and $3million in funding

 

EveryTeam.com

The domain name EveryTeam.com has quite the history. Registered on my birthday in August of 2002.

In 2005 it was billed as the social network for the sports fan. The company that owned the domain name was out of Reston, Virginia.

Press release circa 2005:

Reston, VA (PRWEB) December 14, 2005

EveryTeam.com, the first social networking website dedicated to enhancement of sports fan interaction and communication, launched their website at the beginning of the 2005 National Football League season.

“We are excited to give sports fans of every sport, and of every team the best services we could offer to network and communicate with other fans around the world about the thing they love. Sports!” explained Jason Morrow, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder.

Similar to social networking industry giants like MySpace and Friendster who provide online services, EveryTeam.com is designed specifically for sports fans to facilitate online and offline social interaction with other sports fans around the world.

EveryTeam lets fans interact in traditional ways that are common to most sports fan sites such as with forums and messaging, but EveryTeam also provides the ability for fans to develop their own teammate and rival lists (similar to buddy lists), create social groups that they can invite other fans to be a member of, write blogs and subscribe to other fan blogs, store and share their favorite sports photos, subscribe to their favorite sports news RSS (Real Simple Syndication) feeds, post and search classifieds and much more.

Domain name sold for $35,000

In 2018 the domain name EveryTeam.com is sold for $35,000. A private seller according to Namebio.

There is a new company setting sail with EveryTeam.com, this time the company is based out of the San Francisco Bay Area. They came out the gates on EveryTeam.co.

TechCrunch did a piece on the company in June of 2018, a couple months before the .com purchase.

From the article:

EveryTeam serves as a sort of hub for all of the documents and core information about a company — a kind of living library that adapts over time and can easily suck in new information as it comes about.

The startup said it has raised $3 million in a seed round from Harrison Metal, Upside Partnership, Index Ventures and Greylock Partners.

The domain name expired and caught by DropCatch for $1,216
