PocketGM, a Palo Alto-based fantasy sports company founded by former Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and hedge fund portfolio managers, has partnered with the Pro Football Hall of Fame to deliver a compelling experience to the fantasy sports marketplace.
The Pro Football Hall of Fam
e PocketGM mobile fantasy app will give fans the insights they need to win their full-season and daily fantasy contests, as well as the opportunity to engage with and compete against Gold Jackets (living Pro Football Hall of Famers).
"It's a real honor to partner with the Pro Football Hall of Fame. PocketGM is proud to bring our own Hall of Fame team, group of investors and board of advisors to the partnership,” commented PocketGM CEO Gustavo Miguel.
The fantasy app will offer an exclusive combination of Wall Street-caliber analytics and the football expertise of the game’s greatest legends. In addition, Gold Jackets will draft teams to battle fantasy players in weekly contests with fans earning chances to win signed collectibles or meet their favorite Gold Jacket in person.
“PocketGM will be a great way to enjoy the fantasy experience," stated Gold Jacket Marcus Allen (Class of 2003) who is serving as a spokesperson for the new app. "The rest of the Gold Jackets and I are excited to connect and compete with fantasy fans everywhere."
"Sometimes it takes a legend to spot a legend in the making, and I'll be providing my thoughts on young NFL players who have a chance to make it big," Hall of Fame running back Eric Dickerson (Class of 1999), another PocketGM spokesperson shared. “This app will be a game changer for fantasy players and I’m excited to be featured on it.”
Pro Football Hall of Fame PocketGM will appeal to a wide range of fantasy football players, from the tens of millions competing in season-long leagues to the fast- growing population of daily fantasy players.
