In a move to extend their partnership and build on the success of GGL Global Gaming’s presence at the 2007 Giants Game Day Live program that has heightened the "pre-game" experience for Giants fans before home games, GGL and the world champion New York Giants today announced a formal partnership to host a new online videogame competition and community portal for Giants fans, NFL fans, and videogaming enthusiasts of all levels, everywhere.

The new Giants Game Day Live portal gives fans and gamers a forum to compete in multiple fun and interactive year round videogame tournaments. Anchored by the EA Madden NFL ’08 videogame, the official competition will begin coinciding with the onset of training camp (although Pre-Season matches can be played now) and will exist across multiple platforms, including the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. By joining the tournaments and community, fans everywhere will be able to track their stats, rankings and leaderboard online, while chatting and making lifelong friends in a true "blue" Giants community throughout the 2008 season.

"I put my heart and soul into cheering for the Giants over the years, and I can’t tell you how ecstatic I am that they’ve won the Super Bowl! They’re my passion, but so is gaming. That’s why GGL is bringing traditional sports to the virtual world by connecting the offline sporting experience with social networks and content communities driven by videogames. We’re combining forces to bring the #1 team in professional football together with the #1 leader in videogaming community and content, to make Giants Game Day Live the ultimate virtual sporting experience!" said GGL Chairman and CEO Ted Owen.

All fans will be competing for prizes, including premier tickets to future Giants home games, official Giants’ Gear, and NFL footballs signed by Giants players. The new tournaments will be promoted across all Giants media properties including FOX5 and My9 television stations in New York, the flagship station of the Giants 660 WFAN as well as Giants.com.

"Giants fans are increasingly utilizing the internet to enhance their involvement with each other in the truest sense of community and we are partnering with GGL to provide our fans with best-in-class videogame technology. This expanded partnership with GGL gives our fans a new conduit to connect with each other beyond Giants Stadium and not just during the season but throughout the entire year," said Mike Stevens, New York Giants SVP and Chief Marketing Officer. "As displayed throughout the year, Giants fans come from all walks of life and are incredibly passionate towards ’Big Blue.’ This addition to Giants.com will be an extremely popular interactive fan site, enabling New York Giants fans to never have an ’off-season’ again."
