Stocks in this article: LLNW

"We are proud to leverage Limelight Networks to launch our first Grand Prix Studios Network channel online," said Jeffrey Zimmerman, Grand Prix's Chief Technology Officer. "Limelight's expertise and cutting-edge platform give us an advantage in delivering HD-quality streams and creating a unique and innovative viewing experience to any desktop, tablet or mobile device."

Steve Tew, Chief Executive of the New Zealand Rugby Union, states, "We're thrilled to be involved in the world's richest Sevens championship in history. It's exciting to be on the ground floor of a tournament that we think will be hugely beneficial for the development of the game worldwide, particularly in the United States. Gordon Tietjens will ensure we send a competitive team that will include members of the All Blacks Sevens as well as some very exciting new talent. We see this as a huge opportunity to deepen the pool of talent we have available so it certainly fits with our strategy of ensuring our men's team will be in the Grand Prix Rugby Sevens Championship."

"With Grand Prix now owning the multimedia rights to both world class rugby Sevens and indoor volleyball championships, we will offer global markets live, pay-per-view access to our multi menu of sports and entertainment products," said Gary Marenzi, Grand Prix Studio's CEO and former President of both Paramount and MGM Worldwide Television.

GRAND PRIX RUGBY SEVENS CHAMPIONSHIP. In partnership with USA Rugby, Grand Prix Sports presents the Grand Prix Rugby Sevens Championship which will feature 24 World Cup caliber teams playing 60 games over 3 days for a prize of $1,000,000 - The richest Sevens tournament in history. Bringing professional rugby Sevens to the US market and back to The Home Depot Center as Grand Prix Rugby's partner and Flagship venue is a thrill for the AEG Home Depot Center Group.
