Media Rights Deals Secured
The Esports Vertical of CSMG represents property rights for more than 3,000 academic institutions from high schools to two- and four-year colleges to support recruitment, student life, and career opportunities.
Our mission is to build the framework to serve the long-term success of collegiate esports through a spirit of collaboration and alliances.
CSMG delivers measurable, multi-faceted value to its partners and brands, driving revenue and maximizing exposure.
“The CAA is very pleased to be able to extend its partnership with CSMG. Over the past six years, CSMG was instrumental in helping the CAA secure several important media rights agreements including our revolutionary agreement with FloSports.”
Colonial Athletic Association
“CSMG’s valuation process has allowed us to better understand our conference, what drives value in the modern collegiate athletics ecosystem, and helped to provide a strategic approach to better engage brands and sponsors, locally, regionally, and nationally. The Horizon League recently expanded its relationship with CSMG for assistance with national sponsorship sales as we continue to grow.”
Julie Roe Lach
“CSMG has proven to be a thought leader with respect to the rapidly emerging media ecosystem. Most important, CSMG was able to deliver to the SIAC a partnership with ESPN, which has provided the conference with both a meaningful media rights fee and exposure for the conference as well as its member schools.”
Chief Legal and Business Officer at Fan Controlled Sports and Entertainment
