SportsManias Announces Partnerships with LockerDome and Popular Sports Message Boards.

Digital platform for diehard sports fans aims to boost engagement through league-based contests, polls and community partners

MIAMI, March 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SportsManias, the diehard sports fan's go-to source for team and league news, today announced a new partnership with LockerDome, a social media platform that helps personalize the web. To boost fan engagement, SportsManias will use LockerDome's customizable contest and polls tools to execute cross-promotions. Their vision is to connect diehard fans by providing great content and a platform for discussion. SportsManias' message board partners -- including HuskerMax.com, KillerFrogs.com, BlazerTalk.com and FAUOwlAccess.com -- will amplify this effort to build community through news and conversation.

SportsManias' new league-based contests will give fans an opportunity to win cool prizes such as authentic team jerseys, sports memorabilia and tickets to games. To bring more fans into the conversation, SportsManias will link to a featured message board on respective SportsManias team pages and incorporate their Twitter feeds within the SportsManias website and app. This will not only connect the team discussion communities with the professional beat writers who cover their teams, but also connect fans with the LockerDome contests that apply to their league.

The first groups of message boards features HuskerMax.com, the leading fan site and message board for University of Nebraska athletics; KillerFrogs.com, the discussion hub for Texas Christian University athletics; Blazer Talk, the place for UAB athletics discussion; and OwlAccess, a discussion site dedicated to Florida Atlantic University sports. Many additional message boards will be added in the coming months.

"Our goal is to build a digital sports platform that brings real-time news directly from local beat writers to the diehard communities that value their work," said Vicente Fernandez, Chief Content Officer at SportsManias. "Working with LockerDome and our message board partners, we can boost our readership and use sports news to help grow these thriving fan communities. These are the first of many partnerships that will connect diehard fans to the most complete news and discussions about the teams they love."

"We've built a huge sports audience by connecting fans with the content they really want, and partnering with SportsManias aligns with our efforts to strengthen engagement in the sports vertical," said Ryan Allen, Director of Publisher Development at LockerDome. "High-quality content spurs the best conversations, and SportsManias delivers high-quality sports news."

HuskerMax co-founder David Max said, "We are very pleased to be chosen as the Nebraska athletics representative for SportsManias. We look forward to representing Husker sports on the SportsManias platform and to potentially hosting a Diehard Tour event in Lincoln in the near future."
