Santa Monica, California – June 22, 2017, FanDom Sports Media Corp. (CSE: FDM) (OTC: FDMSF) (FRANKFURT: TQ42) (“FanDom Sports” or the “Company”) will be a sponsor of the “VaynerSports Annual Celebrity ESPY’s Kickoff Party” on Monday July 10, 2017. The Company’s participation in this event is a lead-up to the highly anticipated “FanDom Sports App” launch, which formally takes place at midnight, on July 11th.
Hosted by football legend Peyton Manning, this year’s ESPN ESPY Award Show will yet again, after 25 years, bring together top influencers in sports and entertainment to honor athletic excellence. Pre-award show kickoff parties of this caliber will allow FanDom Sports Media to leverage VaynerSports’ talent network of athletes and industry executives to introduce this influential audience to the FanDom Sports App. This lends to the significant synergy of both FanDom Sports Media’s and VaynerSports’ dedication to help strengthen athlete brand recognition off the field, particularly by enhancing social media profiles. VaynerSports’ dedication to helping their athletes strengthen their brand recognition off the field goes hand-in-hand with FanDom Sports’ goal of aggregating, curating and producing sports-fan engagement content.
Justin Giangrande, Executive Vice President of VaynerSports, explains that, “VaynerSports is excited to include FanDom Sports as a sponsor of our Annual Celebrity ESPYs Kickoff Party this year, and view it as an excellent opportunity for FanDom Sports and their FanDom Sports App to gain exposure and brand awareness.”
Blair Naughty, CEO of FanDom Sports notes that, “this fan-voted show is yet another example of the importance of fan engagement in the current sports and entertainment landscape. Being able to partner with the VaynerSports team for their ESPY event presents a rare opportunity to leverage their access of strong industry players, considering the company is spearheaded by Gary Vaynerchuck. We believe that this is just the beginning of a long and mutually beneficial relationship.”
