ROTOHOG, RAZORGATOR FORM PARTNERSHIP FOR 2009 BASEBALL SEASON

One of America’s leading media distribution companies adds leading secondary ticket provider as exclusive partner for 2009

LOS ANGELES (April 22, 2009) – RotoHog, the leading fantasy sports platform provider, today announced an exclusive partnership with RazorGator for the 2009 Baseball season. The partnership will give RotoHog’s Fantasy baseball participants access to RazorGator’s exclusive ticket inventory for live events, as well as other merchandising and promotional opportunities.

“This partnership with RazorGator gives both RotoHog.com subscribers and our baseball platform partners tremendous added value for 2009,” said Kelly Perdew, CEO of RotoHog. “As one of the premier secondary ticketing sites in the marketplace, RazorGator will give our fantasy baseball players direct access to tickets and other opportunities designed to enhance their online gaming experience beyond fantasy play. They are the perfect partner as we find new ways to expand the gaming experience for all involved.”

“We are always looking for the best in class in partners to reach the avid fan, and RotoHog’s games and their partners are a great fit for us,” said Scott Roback, Vice President of Business Development for RazorGator. “This deal will give all subscribers the opportunity to get access to a very unique list of products and services, tailored to their interests, and we think will be very well received by all those playing Rotohog’s games.”

Fans playing fantasy baseball on RotoHog.com will have access to a co-branded ticket sale website. RotoHog will be able to provide its fantasy sports partners with the option to have a fully-integrated, customized ticket sale component into their white label games. This will provide RotoHog’s partners with an additional revenue stream within the games beyond advertising, sponsorships and premium in-game revenue.

  1. RazorGator is really establishing themselves as an authority and leader in the secondary market of resale tickets. They are competing with the big boys now: StubHub. I think they offer great service with reasonable prices and a big selection of tickets to choose from for many sold out events. Thanks for the post. Good stuff!
