ABOUT OPEN SPORTS
OPEN Sports was founded in March 2008 by Mike Levy, founder and former CEO of SportsLine.com, to build a real-time sports gaming and information company that appeals to users’ interest in intense sports applications. In order to execute his vision, Mike assembled a veteran management team represented by industry leaders CBS Sports, AOL, Liberty Media, Turner Broadcasting, and E*TRADE Group, Inc. This team also counts on its resume two Emmy Award nominations in the category of Outstanding Achievement in Advanced Media Technology. OPEN Sports’ experience in state-of-the-art digital media technologies – combined with the track record of its management team delivering superior results for established brands like the NFL, the NBA, MLB, the PGA Tour, and the NCAA – facilitated the closing of a major media and revenue sharing partnership with FOX Sports. In just its second year, the Company developed a series of fantasy gaming applications for FOX Sports that have been praised by consumers and the trade press alike, providing it with a formidable reputation and leadership in the field. OPEN Sports continues to concept and design cutting-edge products and services aimed at intense sports fans and anticipates an explosion in growth.
