GRV Media Launches The Sporting Gazette Group

GRV Media is proud to announce the formation of The Sporting Gazette Group. This is a Group of three websites covering cricketgolf and tennis, and led by John Verrall, GRV’s Deputy Global Head of Sports Content.

Despite being established less than three months ago, these sites have already collectively reached millions of sports fans.

John Verrall said: ‘This is a very exciting time for the company. These three verticals have a lot of potential, and we feel that, given the right content strategy and allocation of resources, each website can become valuable franchises for the business’.

GRV launched its Bloody Combat Sports Group in March, comprising Bloody ElbowBloody Knockout and Bloody Slam. Bloody Elbow is on track to attract over 4m unique visitors to that site alone this month. The company has also launched, covering snooker and darts.

Vic Daniels, GRV Media’s Executive Chairman, said: ‘The successful launch of F1Oversteer earlier in the year, and the acquisition and integration of Bloody Elbow, showed us that there are lots of opportunities to develop new web properties at this moment in time. 

‘We continue to look for other acquisitions and start-up opportunities in the online sports publishing space, with Rugby League, NFL and NBA being of particular interest. We are keen to talk to individuals who have strong backgrounds covering sport, or website owners who might consider selling. Now is the time’.
