ProElite, Inc. and LiveHive Systems™ Introduce Fantasy Fight Game to Mixed Martial Arts Fans
NanoGaming™ allows MMA fans to play alongside favorite fighters
NOVEMBER 15, 2007 - WATERLOO, ONTARIO: LiveHive Systems today announced that it has signed an agreement with ProElite, Inc. to enhance the television and Internet viewing experience for fans of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) by introducing the ProElite Fantasy Fight Game, a fun, interactive offering.
The ProElite Fantasy Fight Game debuts with the upcoming MMA fight being held in New Jersey on Saturday, November 17, 2007. In order to play, MMA fans must go to http://fantasy.proelite.com before the event begins at 10:00 p.m. EST/7:00 p.m. PST.
“This is a game that allows fans to experience the raw energy of MMA and interact with matches broadcast on television or ProElite.com,” says Dave Bullock, President and Co-Founder of LiveHive Systems. “On ProElite.com, MMA fans can play alongside their favorite fighters by making predictions on what will happen next. They can also answer trivia questions and chat with other fans, and have the option of playing the game while watching the fight concurrently through a live video stream on ProElite.com, which is a first.”
Kelly Perdew, President of ProElite.com, says partnering with LiveHive Systems gives ProElite.com members a high-quality, interactive experience that further connects them to this burgeoning sport.
“Our integration of the LiveHive NanoGaming platform further demonstrates our commitment to provide MMA fans with the highest quality entertainment every time they visit ProElite.com,” Perdew said. “This will help build a community of fans around a variety of MMA events, not just one fight brand. Fans can chat and compete with each other, which makes the viewing experience far more engaging. The ProElite Fantasy Fight Game allows fans to become a part of the action.”
Fans who play the game will be eligible for prizes based on accumulating points for accurate predictions.
