"We are excited to be partnering with PERFORM which has rapidly become a global digital sports media powerhouse," commented Whitney Shaw, CEO of ACBJ. "Their focus on multi-media innovation that serves sports fans on any device is exactly what Sporting News is aiming at doing for its next 127 years. By partnering with PERFORM, we are combining the heritage and editorial excellence of one of the US's oldest sports media brands with a forward-looking, digitally-focused organization with tremendous technology, content and media assets to create an innovative leader in the digital sports space."Oliver Slipper, Joint-CEO of PERFORM, added, "in Sporting News we have found the right partner that will enable us to accelerate the growth of our US business. The transformation of the Sporting News brand from all print to all digital over the last few years has truly been remarkable. With growth in digital reach of 950% and digital revenue growth of almost 300%, Sporting News has accomplished something many legacy brands only aspire to achieve. Combining that powerful brand with the digital video leadership of PERFORM's ePlayer will enable us to build a truly dynamic business in the United States and Canada. Additionally as soccer cements itself as a top 5 sport in the US, Goal is an extremely exciting asset for this partnership to nurture and grow, in particular with the World Cup around the corner."
