St. Louis, MO, June 26, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- RealTime Fantasy Sports is excited to announce the acquisition of Fantasy Commissioner Web, a subsidiary of First Place Sports Software, owned by James Serra. RTSports will power all FCW leagues commencing immediately. RTSports President Mark Hanna is enthusiastic about the acquisition.
"RealTime Fantasy Sports has known James and his company for many years,” Hanna said. “There is hardly a company in the fantasy sports business with higher integrity than First Place Software, mainly due to James’ leadership. James has also been a forerunner in the Fantasy Sports Trade Association, serving as one of the founding board members. The addition of Fantasy Commissioner Web and their loyal customers will make us a formidable presence in the fantasy sports space.”
The transition from Fantasy Commissioner Web to RealTime Fantasy Sports should be seamless. All of FCW’s leagues, teams, rules, logos, messages and even archive data have been transferred to RTSports. In addition, FCW’s customers will enjoy over 70 enhancements with RTSports, all at the same (or, by paying early, lower) price. In addition, RTSports is offering a 50% discount for First Place Sports Software’s Fantasy Commissioner Desktop customers to convert their leagues to the web and transfer them to RTSports.
“I’m very excited to offer my customers a new home that has extra features, additional reliability, and enhanced customer service. I’m now part of a larger team that will take fantasy football league management to the next level,” Serra said.
The acquisition of Fantasy Commissioner Web is just one of many ventures for RealTime Sports, making them a huge presence in the fantasy sports world. In addition to their fantasy commissioner services (including baseball and auto racing), RTSports also powers fantasy games for the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), Professional Bull Riding Association (PBR), Fantasy Sports Ventures (FSV) and others.
