HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Aug. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2015-2016 NFL season kicks off this Sunday August 9, 2015 at 8:00 P.M. ET between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Minnesota Vikings. Daily fantasy sports betting sites such as Fan Duel and Draft Kings are certain to see lots of gambling action starting with this game. In response, AllSportsMarket (ASM) is announcing the final stages of development of an entirely new sports fan experience called "ASM Live!" going online Thursday September 10, 2015 for the start of NFL regular season between the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots.
NHL Legend Bernie Nicholls says: "Every year the Hall of Fame game gets the NFL pre-season started. It's an exciting time. Things like Tom Brady and Deflate-gate get headlines in the off-season, but now it's time to get the show on the road. This year, fans will have the opportunity to compete with their sports knowledge unlike ever before. Reality Sports competitions are here and ASM Live! is going to be the first to offer them. It's a spin-off of Fantasy Sports that we call Reality Sports, which will have fans competing in investment style competitions using their knowledge of sports in a stock market setting that uses real life data from all the pro leagues. We are launching with NFL, but NHL, NBA and MLB will all follow accordingly. It's going to be unlike any product on the market today – sports fans in general are going to love this, but the 45 million+ fantasy sports fans will LOVE what we have here. I hope everyone is excited as I 'am, as just got Goosebumps saying that!"
"ASM Free! and ASM Live! are only the starting points and a demonstration for something much larger, The Sports Vote. With the backing of the public in California to change the constitution, we will enable an entirely new sports asset class and bring good jobs and tax revenues to the state. Obviously we have a lot of work to do, but all the pieces are coming into place," says Chris Rabalais, ASM C.E.O. and Political Director of The Sports Vote.
Bernie Nicholls is spokesman and sports industry liaison. Bernie was an explosive scorer who accumulated over 1,200 career points while playing for six NHL teams. Recently, Bernie helped coach the Los Angeles Kings to their first Stanley Cup ever in their 48-year history.
