FTBpro, a fan-generated media platform focused on soccer, has raised $18 million in new funding from existing investors Battery Ventures and Gemini Israel Ventures, as well as new investor Dawn Capital. The new capital brings the company's total funding to about $24 million. Driven by thousands of regular contributors providing hundreds of daily articles in seven different languages, FTBpro serves over 100 million page views and millions of active users every month across Web, mobile and social networks.
Founded in 2011, FTBpro is headquartered in London with additional offices in Tel Aviv. The company plans to use proceeds to further boost its rapid global expansion, enhance strategic partnerships and enrich its mobile and video product offerings. The new investment will enable FTBpro to open offices in Southeast Asia and launch its platform across the region.
