LOS ANGELES, CA—(Marketwire – March 6, 2009) RotoHog, one of the fastest-growing and most innovative fantasy sports operators and developers for major brands and professional sports, today announced that they have formed a partnership with the AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour to create an exciting new fantasy game for the sport and its fans. The game will begin at the end of March and run through the end of the AVP season in September, and will allow fans to create their own lineups and follow the statistics of their favorite players through the AVP website, avp.com.

“The AVP is one of those unique sports properties that has everything a fan could want…great male and female athletes, individual and team play, a loyal following, recognition amongst the casual fan and loads of statistics, all of which makes it prime for the fantasy sports world,” said Kelly Perdew, CEO of RotoHog. “We are very excited to be able to build out this first-ever fantasy game for the fans and the athletes, and are looking forward to a long partnership as the game evolves.”

“The AVP is all about the experience, and having a fantasy game will now give our fans an opportunity to experience the thrill of our events in another way, and follow the tour and their favorite athletes even more closely each week,” said Leonard Armato, CEO and Commissioner of the AVP Crocs Tour. “We are very pleased to be able to work with Rotohog in bringing this new digital opportunity to our fans.”

The 2009 AVP Fantasy Challenge powered by RotoHog, will be launched in mid-March, and will give fans the opportunity to follow their favorite players on the AVP Crocs Tour all season. Fans will also be able to sign up at any time, and prizes will be rewarded for short-term contests as well as for the full season. The winners will be those who score the most fantasy points based on AVP player statistics such as aces, blocks, digs and hitting percentage. In addition to the game’s presence on the Tour’s official website avp.com, it will be promoted onsite, online and in AVP broadcasts.
