Since humans first started walking the Earth, we begun to develop different technologies to make our lives easier. But, once comfort is plentiful, technology moves on to even greater heights. In the 21st century, when our technological development is faster than ever, progress can be felt in all walks of life. Especially entertainment. 

Advancements have made it possible to enjoy different aspects of the entertainment industry much easier than we once could. This is especially true for sports. So, let us take a look at some of the ways that Technology has altered sports and made it a lot more interesting and enjoyable for the masses.


Once upon a time, the only way to enjoy your favorite sporting event, was to be there for it. Nowadays however, this is no longer the case. In large part thanks to the popularization of sports betting sites like the ones found at, we can now view the games from the comfort of our own home. 

You see, these betting sites have an option for live betting. And because they’ve been widely accepted and taken as sponsors for the various sporting events that they cover, they now have the right to stream the matches from these events. This means that you can open your laptop, hop on over to a website, and watch any sporting event that allows live betting. 

This is just one of the many ways that technology has helped sports evolve and has made life easier for many sports fans. 

Different Sporting Gear

Moving away from competition sports, for this second point we are going to take a look at the way tech has impacted personal workouts. Obviously, there are technological advancements that are self-evident. Different machines have been built that once would have been considered impossible. An excellent example of this would be the treadmill.

However, in the past few years, we’ve developed gadgets and knick-knacks to help people get a better work out without the need for heavy machines. Examples of this would involve watches that keep track of our steps or our heart rate. These devices have made the lives of runners so much easier and have encouraged many people to try their hand at working out.

Objective Improvements to the Game

Tech has also brought some objective improvements to the game. What we mean by this is simple. Coaches can now better discover the troubles their players are having. Through filming and watching back the footage, both coaches and the players themselves can discover the troubles they are having. 

But it goes beyond just improvements to the people. Technology has allowed us to improve the very terrain itself. We now have the ability to maximize the safety and maintain optimal conditions of the court or field. In other words, the game is now safer for the athletes, and thus more dynamic, making it a lot more enjoyable for the fans. 


Whether you are looking to enjoy the game or participate in some athletic event, you could not have asked for a better time to be born. Tech has made the sporting world a lot more accessible to a lot more people. So, strap on a watch, put on a livestream and enjoy the Premier League.

CEO AfrikaTech

Comme beaucoup de personnes j’ai connu l’Afrique à travers des stéréotypes : l’Afrique est pauvre, il y a la guerre, famine… Je suis devenu entrepreneur pour briser ces clichés et participer à la construction du continent. J’ai lancé plusieurs entreprises dont Kareea (Formation et développement web), Tutorys (Plate-forme de e-learning), AfrikanFunding (Plate-forme de crowdfunding). Après un échec sur ma startup Tutorys, à cause d’une mauvaise exécution Business, un manque de réseau, pas de mentor, je suis parti 6 mois en immersion dans l’écosystème Tech au Sénégal. J’ai rencontré de nombreux entrepreneurs passionnés, talentueux et déterminés. A mon retour sur Paris je décide de raconter leur histoire en créant le média AfrikaTech. L'objectif est de soutenir les entrepreneurs qui se battent quotidiennement en Afrique en leur offrant la visibilité, les connaissances, le réseautage et les capitaux nécessaires pour réussir. L'Afrique de demain se construit aujourd'hui ensemble. Rejoignez-nous ! LinkedIn:
