Head2Head Sports is Presented with Prestigious Industry Award
Wins Best Salary Cap Fantasy Sports Contest, Finalist in Two other Categories
Scottsdale, AZ (September 5, 2006) - Head2Head Sports was awarded the coveted Best Salary Cap Contest Award for their popular H2H Fantasy Football contest by the Fantasy Sports Trade Association. Head2Head Sports was also recognized as a finalist in two other categories during the national conference. Winners are selected based upon voting from industry peers.
The recognition for H2H Salary Cap Football comes after two years of significant enhancements to their highly popular fantasy football contest. A salary cap fantasy contest is set up to mirror the real world of professional sports by allowing participants to build a team of players within a designated salary cap. As the professional players score points on the field, the participant's team receives those points in their competitions. The H2H Football contest has been in the market for over ten years and was a finalist in this category in 2005. The game is available at the Head2Head Sports website (www.head2head.com/football/salarycap).
"We are very excited to receive this recognition from our peers in the association," commented Head2Head Sports founder, Bill Reinking. "We continue to improve our games and innovate on new features to improve our member's experience. Given the large number of competitors in our market, this is a great validation of our team's efforts."
Head2Head was also an award finalist in two other categories. They were recognized in the Live Events Contest category for their live, on-location fantasy football draft contest, The Draft. "We see a fantastic growth opportunity to extend the traditional online experience into live fantasy sports events," commented Kevin Gralen, Head2Head Sports president. Additionally, Head2Head Sports was a finalist in the Unique Contest category for their partnership with Major League Lacrosse. The MLL Fantasy Challenge is the first fantasy contest for professional lacrosse and was rolled out in 2006 to thousands of passionate lacrosse fans.
