Sideline Swap Powers the Sporting Goods Industry’s First Online Resale Program With
Launch of Perani’s Hockey World Fall 2020 Resale Event
The resale program enables consumers to turn their used sports gear into credit to spend with Perani’s Hockey World.
Boston, MA, September, 2020 – SidelineSwap , the world’s largest online marketplace for
sporting goods, announced the launch of its first resale program in partnership with Perani’s
Hockey World. The Fall 2020 Resale Event enables Perani’s Hockey World customers to easily
sell their used sports gear on SidelineSwap and earn bonus credit when they cash out their
proceeds into shopping credit at Perani’s Hockey World.
According to Brendan Candon, CEO of SidelineSwap, “In the new circular economy, where
consumers are increasingly embracing the resale & purchase of used goods , SidelineSwap
provides sporting goods consumers the ability to easily resell their used sporting goods quickly
and safely from their homes. This puts more money in the pockets of consumers, while also
allowing the used gear to play on to another athlete and remain out of landfills.”
“When a customer knows they can resell last season’s hockey skates for 50% of the retail price,
they’re more likely to stretch to buy a more expensive pair of skates for the upcoming season,”
Candon went on to say. “That’s a win for retail partners, a win for their customers, and a win for
the buyer of used gear who accesses high quality skates at a steep discount.”
To-date, SidelineSwap has helped over 1 million athletes resell their used gear and is part of the
larger global resale movement, led by fashion resale marketplaces such as ThredUp, The
RealReal, & Poshmark. “We’ve seen the massive growth in fashion resale, which is on-track to
be a $64 Billion dollar industry in 5 years . The resale of sporting goods is part of this
movement, and we are excited to be the leading online resale destination for sporting goods, as
well as the resale partner of choice for forward-looking brands like Perani’s Hockey World”
states Doug Smith, SidelineSwap’s VP of Partnerships.
Robert Perani, Vice President of Perani’s Hockey World, stated “We are excited to partner with
SidelineSwap to enable our customers to tap into the residual value of their used sports gear to
help defray the cost of new hockey gear for the upcoming season.” “We know hockey families
are looking for ways to save money, so giving them a resale option is not just good for business,
it’s good for sports and the environment.”
Customers who sell on SidelineSwap during the Perani’s Hockey World Fall 2020 Resale Event
will receive shopping credit at Perani’s Hockey World with a 15% bonus on top of their resale
earnings. For more information, please visit: www.sidelineswap.com/peranis .
