]According to Brendan Candon, CEO of SidelineSwap, “In the new circular economy where consumers are embracing reselling and buying used goods, SidelineSwap’s recommerce platform offers MonkeySports athletes the convenience and ease of selling their items. used and unwanted sports gear right where they shop.This puts more money in the pockets of MonkeySports athletes, while allowing used gear to play on another athlete and stay out of landfills.
“When a customer knows they can salvage some of the value of last season’s baseball bat, hockey skates or lacrosse equipment, they are more likely to upgrade to new equipment for the coming season,” Candon explains. “This is a win for MonkeySports and the brands they sell, a win for their athletes, and a win for the athlete who ultimately buys quality used equipment at a good price.”
John Namaan, CEO of MonkeySports, said: “We are delighted to partner with SidelineSwap to make it easy for our athletes to trade in their unwanted used sports gear from previous seasons and receive store credit to help reduce the cost of new equipment for the coming season. We know MonkeySports athletes are looking for ways to save money, so offering them an easy redemption option isn’t just good for business, it’s good for the sport and the environment.
MonkeySports athletes who attend swap events at MonkeySports venues can bring their used gear to the event and it will be appraised by experts using SidelineSwap’s proprietary swap technology.
