Champa Bay Sports, Tampa’s First Community as a Brand Pop Up Shop

September 16, 2021

Tampa lifestyle brand Champa Bay Sports was recently a vendor at Camp’s 5-year anniversary celebration on September 9th. The event featured a variety of local businesses and vendors as well as raffles, a DJ, food and more. Champa Bay Sports was right at home at this event as every brand had direct ties to our local community. Ben founded Champa Bay Sports (Instagram) in 2021 and launched the Tampa-based company during the Stanley Cup finals. Within the first 3 months of operation and going viral on Instagram including the support of local business owners and community leaders, Ben and his team managed to produce 20 apparel designs, acquire 15 strategic partners, employ 8 full-time staff, set up an e-commerce store and organize 6 upcoming community events that will engage the community’s creative and cohesive nature.

Champa Bay Sports Director of Strategic Partnerships and Community Impact JJ Massaro told us, “It was a no brainer to get involved when Camp approached us about their anniversary event. They had a ton of local vendors, and it was very community centric which is what we are all about so there was a lot of synergy. Camp is such a staple in the Tampa community, so we were very happy to be involved.”

We also spoke with Champa Bay Sports CEO and Founder Ben Sever who told us, “Not only am I excited for what Champa Bay Sports will do for innovation, philanthropy, and community, but the strategic partnership between the Champa Bay Sports team and the tenured eRemede experts provide a perfect bedrock of the industries in Tampa. When looking at it through a macro-economic view, they have a perfect dovetail between philanthropy, software, empowerment, human capital management, sports and innovation.”

We love to see the variety of ways Ben and Champa Bay Sports are positively impacting and representing our community and look forward to their continued success!
