Dappz Sports Inks Sponsorship Deal with Hostage Tape as Part of Strategic Effort to Bring Brands into Live Shopping Space

Dappz Sports, the leading cross-platform sports and entertainment media company in the trading card and signed memorabilia hobby, today announces its new sponsorship deal with Hostage Tape, the most trusted mouth tape for better nasal breathing during sleep. The partnership will allow Hostage Tape to be featured throughout Dappz Sports 24-hour stream through product placements and ads delivered by the stream's hosts, as well as giving Dappz Sports customers samplers of Hostage Tape with their purchases.

"We're super excited to have Hostage Tape be our first sponsor for the stream," said Matt "Dappz" McGuckin, founder of Dappz Sports. "This type of product placement and advertising has yet to be done in the live shopping market and we couldn't think of a better brand to link up with to initiate this next era of advertising. Brands are starting to realize that traditional media such as TV and Radio are dying mediums because the customers live on their smartphones scrolling through platforms like TikTok. There's so much untapped potential and opportunity for brands and advertisers to get the eyeballs of people in ways they never thought to before. Through our 30 million viewers, we're showing that live-shopping streams are where these brands will get the most bang for their buck."

Hostage Tape is the first brand that will be a featured sponsor on Dappz Sports 24-hour live stream. Hostage Tape also recently announced its sponsorship deal with the UFC, with both deals serving as key aspects of a larger campaign to bring the heralded mouth tape brand to a wider audience. Dappz, an avid UFC fan and collector of rare edition fighter sports cards, views this deal as validation for the future growth of the live shopping market.

"Having Hostage Tape choose us to partner with, alongside their UFC deal, shows how promising the live-shopping is. This is where advertising dollars are going and we just happen to be on the forefront of this booming movement. This is the evolution of ad spend and you're going to start seeing more brands go down the TikTok and live-shopping route to get in front of the most viewers possible," continued Dappz.

Alongside Hostage Tape, Dappz Sports has also signed deals with Fathead and Straight Music Group to sponsor other streams that the company hosts online.
