The company has announced a strategic investment in Vegas Stats & Information Network (VSiN), the first media network dedicated to sports betting information.

The deal, led by SeventySix Capital partners Ryan Howard, former MLB superstar, Wayne Kimmel and Jon Powell, will help VSiN create and distribute compelling and actionable sports gambling content across a growing number of platforms. The funding will also allow VSiN, co-founded by acclaimed sportscaster Brent Musburger, to expand its video capabilities and data offering.

"The sports betting industry is projected to be over $250 billion by 2020 and we believe that VSiN is positioned to capture a significant share of the media and analytics segment of this new market," said Kimmel, "We’re excited to partner with the VSiN team to build the media network for the sports betting industry."

"If someone is going to place a sports bet, credible information is crucial," Howard said, "My partners and I at SeventySix Capital are investing in the elements within the sports betting industry that consumers need, including data collection, analytics and, now, media."

In 2017, VSiN debuted with just three hours of live programming. Today, the one-of-a-kind network has a loyal and growing audience, a popular subscription product and is broadcasting 24/7 on SiriusXM and vsin.com. The investment from SeventySix Capital will support VSiN’s mission to expand their efforts of delivering the news, data and expert analysis of the rapidly growing sports betting industry that fans need to succeed.

"This investment comes at an exciting time, as the legalization of sports gambling across the country is driving an evolution within the sports media space. This will change the way people watch sports," said Brian Musburger, VSiN Co-Founder and Chairman. "We couldn’t be more thrilled that Wayne, Ryan and the SeventySix Capital team are taking this ride with us. The team’s knowledge and expertise within sports and technology make them an essential partner. We’re looking forward to leveraging their expertise and relationships to capitalize on the huge and rapidly growing opportunity within the sports betting space."
