Oxygen and Glam Media Partner for Online Game

"Fight Girls Fantasy League" Video Game to Launch June 12 on Oxygen.com and Glam.com

NEW YORK, June 11 -- Oxygen and Glam Media have partnered together to create a unique online game pegged to the premiere of Oxygen's newest original series Fight Girls, which follows ten female Muay Thai fighters as they compete for the ultimate title. The "Fight Girls Fantasy League" launches on June 12 and will run exclusively on Oxygen.com and Glam.com

The "Fight Girls Fantasy League" allows participants to draft fighters from the series as players on their team and watch as they compete throughout the season. Participants will earn or lose points based on events that take place throughout the season, like who wins the weekly competitions. The player with the most points at the end of the season will win a grand prize of $1,000.

This game is intended to acquaint viewers with the show and characters, drive buzz about the show and encourage tune-in, as well as continued interest throughout the season. The game will primarily be promoted by Glam Media and Oxygen will promote the game during each episode and banner ads on Oxygen.com. The game was developed by Fafarazzi, an online game developer and fantasy league website.

"Gaming is such a huge industry right now and we wanted to create something that tapped into that arena and also resonated with our audience," said Cynthia Ashworth, SVP of Marketing for Oxygen. "This game allows our audience to have a fully interactive experience and participate in a new way, which is something Oxygen is interested in exploring further in the future."

"As the fastest-growing property on the Web, Glam Media is committed to offering highly-engaging lifestyle entertainment for women," said Samir Arora, chairman and CEO of Glam Media. "Oxygen's Fight Girls and the unique video game and the interactive marketing campaign we've created together is a leading example of how Glam works with leading content providers and advertisers alike to create the ultimate digital experience." Premiering Tuesday, June 12th at 10:30 pm, Fight Girls chronicles ten tough female fighters who are out for the fight of their lives and attempt the impossible -- to beat the best female fighters in the world in a battle for the World Muay Thai Championship. Trained by Muay Thai guru Master Toddy, a champion and Thai native, ten women fight for the opportunity to travel to Thailand and compete in the country's historic sport also known as Thai Boxing.
