First-Ever Fantasy Game Partnership for Pro Football Focus Unites PFF’s Unrivaled Analytical Content with Scout’s Renown Fantasy Football Online Championship Competition
New York, NY (Aug. XX, 2015) — Scout today announced an exclusive distribution partnership with former NFL player and NBC broadcaster Cris Collinsworth’s Pro Football Focus (PFF). The partnership, the first-ever collaboration of its kind for PFF, brings the Fantasy Football Online Championship, powered by Scout, to the PFF community, while providing Scout’s membership with access to PFF’s industry-leading analytical content.
Scout is the leading site for fantasy competitions and is the owner of the Fantasy Football World Championships. Last year, former NFL player and NBC broadcaster Cris Collinsworth purchased PFF, which was founded in 2007 by Neil Hornsby and is the industry leader in football analytics, with PFF’s statistics widely cited in NFL media reports.
“Our breakthrough partnership with Pro Football Focus demonstrates Scout’s ongoing commitment to collaborating with the best of the best,” said James Heckman, Scout’s Founder & CEO. “Fantasy sports is a massive, multi-billion-dollar industry which continues to move further into the mainstream and continues to see significant growth on a yearly basis.”
The Fantasy Sports Trade Association reports 57 million fantasy players in North America, a number which has been growing exponentially over recent years.
“Scout Fantasy, the owner of the Fantasy Football World Championships, is hands down the best in fantasy football contests,” said Mike Clay, Director and Managing Editor of PFF Fantasy. “Scout Fantasy is the only player we considered for this breakthrough fantasy game partnership, which will redefine the game for fantasy players everywhere.”
“Scout’s partnership with PFF, the definitive leader in analytic content, further strengthens Scout Fantasy’s position at the forefront of fantasy sports,” said Ian Ritchie, Scout’s GM of Fantasy Sports.
