Contests that pay

Offer local advertisers high-powered banners and contest sponsorships. GamesPerform also works with Google DFP, so you can incorporate programmatic advertising and squeeze big value from every impression.

Picks from the experts

Let players test their sports knowledge against up to four designated experts—sponsors, staffers, local celebrities, etc.—from your area. Detailed full-season and historical stats let users follow their progress versus each other and the experts.

The TownNews Bracket Challenge empowers local media sites—newspapers, TV stations, radio stations, and magazines—to create digital college basketball bracket contests that turn local sports fans into loyal repeat visitors, driving audience engagement and advertising revenue.

Turnkey bracket challenges

Capitalize on the excitement of the men's college basketball tournament with your own bracket challenge. Most Americans will fill out brackets somewhere. Why not let them do it in a way that grows your audience and brand?

Sports news coverage

Surround contests with the latest sports news from our national content partner, Athlon Sports, and expert commentary from your local news site, making your pick’em a destination for local sports fanatics—even those who aren’t participants.

Easy roll out

Once your pick’em site is launched, adding new contests, creating leagues, and keeping your site up-to-date is a breeze. And we offer a variety of widgets that make it easy to integrate GamesPerform with your existing sites, propelling traffic and keeping players engaged.
