Monday December 2,2013 :  NEWSPAPER GROUP SIGNS UP FOR FANTASY FOOTBALL GAMING SERVICE
 
Picklive and Telegraph Media ink social gaming and fantasy football deal.
 
Picklive Limited, operators and suppliers of next-generation fantasy sports and social gaming facilities, have announced a new partnership with The Telegraph Media Group in the United Kingdom.
 
The deal will allow the Telegraph to offer fantasy players access to Picklive’s short-term fantasy sports and social gaming products, which typically last for one match.
 
David Galan, CEO of Picklive said Monday: “We are delighted to be partnering with the Telegraph given its unique position as a major media company that already offers season-long fantasy football. This opportunity allows us to bring product innovation and the ‘social’ element into the fast growing short duration daily fantasy sports space to the Telegraph’s customers, complimenting the existing season long games.”
 
Picklive is a former Telegraph Startup 100: Gaming, Virtual Worlds finalist, and according to Galan sees itself as a ‘second screen' entertainment provider and companion whilst watching live sport events.
 
“Picklive’s daily live games will offer 200,000 Telegraph Fantasy Football would-be managers a fresh and exciting way to test their selection skills in an innovative social environment,” said Steve Stiles, interactive sports manager at the Telegraph Media Group.
