FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NEW YORK (September 26, 2017) – Today, JIG Media, owners of NYCFootball.com, announced they have partnered with Overtime to bring weekly video highlights to the New York City high school football market.
“We are excited about this partnership with Overtime”, stated Vernon Jones Sr, CEO of JIG Media. “They are experts in sports video highlights. As traditional media like newspapers and television continue to abandon high school sports because of their dwindling audiences and financial struggles, it is more important than ever for us to step in and fill the void. Our digital media platforms for high school sports continue to grow in terms of members and engagement, and this partnership with Overtime opens the door to allowing our members to further engage with us through video highlights. It’s the kind of win-win-win that we love.”
JIG Media’s NYCFootball.com and NYCBasketball.com digital media properties are considered by many to be the Facebook of NYC high school sports, with over 40,000 combined members and a reach of over 425,000 high school sports fans, coaches and scouts. JIG Media also owns the NYC Sports Network digital platform, which includes all NYC sports. Football coverage includes the PSAL (Public Schools Athletic Leagues) and CHSFL (Catholic High School Football League).
Zack Weiner, Co-Founder of Overtime said, “we’re extremely excited about this partnership. This is a unique opportunity for us to display highlights of the best games each week to the fanbase that most wants to see them. Although we will provide video highlights of the NYC Football Game of the Week, fans, players and coaches have the ability to download our Overtime app and share their video highlights on the NYCFootball.com platform as well. The Overtime app is free and easy to download and easy to record highlights.”
“The highlights will appear on the homepage of NYCFootball.com each week, and all of the videos will live on our NYC Sports Network platform, as a way to attract additional NYC sports fans to watch NYC high school football”, added Jones.
