Venue Agreement with LiveBarn

Pleasant Prairie Venue Agreement with LiveBarn
Posted on 05/23/2022
On Monday, May 23, the Village Board approved a Venue Agreement between the Village of Pleasant Prairie and LiveBarn Inc. The company specializes in live streaming amateur and youth sporting events. This agreement brings live event video streaming to the Village Recreation Department and enables RecPlex to broadcast sports tournaments on-demand. 

LiveBarn plans to work directly with the Recreation Department to install streaming technology at key event spaces throughout RecPlex. The Recreation Department already utilizes LiveBarn technology in the two RecPlex ice arenas. The approved agreement with the Village will expand the streaming service to the field house, aquatics center, ball fields, and Lake Andrea Beach.

"The partnership with LiveBarn offers RecPlex a no-cost event streaming solution that allows viewers to watch remotely and spectate from anywhere," said Athletics & Recreation Manager Brett Christopher. "We have tested the service in the ice arenas and are excited to expand the streaming services to give athletes, coaches, and event spectators a remote option that provides a different point of view.” 

LiveBarn will install all streaming equipment at their own expense. Therefore, the only cost to the Village-owned recreational facility is the increased internet bandwidth at the facility. In addition, the Village and LiveBarn also have a revenue-sharing agreement for the streaming service subscriptions. The deal creates an additional revenue stream for the Village Recreation Department.
