Teesside Lions on the Ryze thanks to Stockton agency

Stockton-based Ryze have signed a partnership with Teesside Lions which will utilise the award-winning skill sets of the digital experience agency to propel the ambitious basketball club to new levels.

The latest addition to the club’s infrastructure will produce what promises to be stunning visual upgrades such as the website, branding and digital elements, including promotional videos and marketing tools.

Ryze will also assist with strategy, and develop the background architecture of the club requirements, specifically the membership database and a bespoke stats collation and automation system to direct users into a unique and exciting experience.

The partnership will feature Ryze as a key corporate partner of the Lions and position Ryze in a prime location on teamwear.

Established in 2018, the innovative company have been honoured in three global awards, highlighted by overcoming 13,000 international entries to win the Webby Award, which is the leading industry honour for internet-based services.

Ryze produced a kit launch promotional video for the Lions which was launched with a wave of positive feedback not only from Lions fans, but opposing teams and people not even involved in the sport.

The video attracted nearly 10,000 impressions in less than 24 hours, with Ryze founder and chief executive David Smith saying: “From early meetings with James Thomson, the ambitions of Teesside Lions were clear and exciting. They strive for greatness on and off the court and I can see a lot of parallels with Ryze.

“Prior to Covid lockdown I was fortunate to attend one of their games at Eston Leisure Centre and the potential is incredible.

“We enjoy working with ambitious companies and supporting their vision with our highly skilled team of specialist digital consultants, UX designers and developers to ensure strategy and project development is delivered in the most innovative and effective way.

“We are proud to become a commercial partner of Teesside Lions and look forward to supporting their journey to the top.”

Ryze have an envious client list including Bellway Homes, Typica Coffee, and Total Recycling Services as well as luxury development group Kleindeinst.

Lions owner James Thomson added: “Dave, Matt and the team at Ryze have just been honoured in three different global awards. To have them working on our club projects with their incredible skillsets is a dream come true.

“We have already showcased the Kit Launch video and this gives everyone a taste of their capabilities, with so much more to follow.”
