FanVsFan (www.FanVsFan.com) transforms fans and bloggers into competitive FanCasters. Step Up Your Game. Compete, Broadcast, Win, to Silence Your Rivals!
LOS ANGELES, CA (September 9, 2009) — V-Tech announced the launch of its flagship multimedia property FanVsFan (www.FanVsFan.com), a website which breaks down the traditional barriers of fan journalism by offering a multimedia news and branded entertainment platform that promises lively sports debate, blog aggregation, vertical ad network and a traveling show all in the context of a game that transcends the on-line and off-line worlds. The announcement was made by Scott Stephens, Founder and CEO of FanVsFan, LLC and its parent company V-Tech, LLC.
“FanVsFan connects brands with fans in a fun, interactive and competitive manner which is what sports is all about” says Stephens of his brain child which creates blog to blog rivalry and allows fans, bloggers and athletes to write articles and debate sports via their webcam. Top debate challenges and their FanCasters may be selected for a “FanBowl” where one can win sponsored prizes including a trip on the Ultimate Tailgate Machine (UTM). The FanVsFan platform is a true collaboration between Madison Avenue, Hollywood, Silicon Valley and the wired global public.
On the Ultimate Tailgate Machine (UTM) top rated bloggers and fans will broadcast live from the game like "College Game Day". The site also has a "Hot Topic" sports debate show akin to ESPN’s "Pardon The Interruption" yet instead of professional sports analysts debating each other, fans and bloggers do the debating. The top rated debates are called FanBowls and are combined with a professional host in a "Hot Topic" debate show where brands make a cameo as the coveted prize. The FanVsFan sports page is filled with breaking articles from top blogs and fan journalists who compete against one another to get their articles to the top.
One does not need a sports blog to get in the game, only an opinion and the desire to win. Those who have a top sports blog can join the FanVsFan Vertical Ad Network to earn more money, drive traffic and receive branding support from industry veterans.
“Our philosophy is to choose blogs that have promise as a brand and support their efforts by making them valued content partners for FanVsFan” says Stephens. “We represent the blogs to the entertainment industry, brands and provide national coverage and promotional opportunities for their talents. There is an amazing amount of talent coming out of the blogosphere especially as it matures and broadcasting technology becomes less expensive. FanVsFan is the vehicle that will promote and consolidate this talent."
FanVsFan and all of the V-Tech properties are designed to start on-line but thrive in all distribution environments including TV, radio, mobile, vehicle and event marketing. The launch of FanVsFan will spearhead a true collaboration between Madison Avenue, Hollywood, Silicon Valley and the wired global public. All future V-Tech properties will be focused on Sports, Music, Comedy and Debating. Each property will be launched one after the other. V-Tech and its flagship property FanVsFan is represented by a top tier Hollywood talent agency, Jay Cooper, Esq, Chair of the Greenberg Traurig, LLP Los Angeles entertainment law practice, a top entertainment law firm. V-Tech and FanVsFan has attracted the attention of major agencies, brands including Steiner Sports (an Omnicom Company) and top media, entertainment and venture capital executives.
