Perform Group, ACBJ Launch Joint Venture Around Sporting News
Published March 28, 2013
The deal will further solidify Perform in the U.S. Its ePlayer, in less than four years of domestic operation after an initial run in England, has assembled online highlight rights to nearly every major U.S. pro sports property including the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL, and distributes the content to major news outlets including Gannett, the N.Y. Daily News and L.A. Times, among others. The addition of Sporting News brings a large array of news and sports data, as well as a mainstream consumer brand. For ACBJ, the deal represents another significant step in the ongoing transformation of Sporting News, which it purchased in '06.
ACBJ is the parent company of The Daily, SportsBusiness Journal and SportsBusiness Daily Global.
