Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) February 4, 2009
LeagueSafe, LLC won two Industry Recognition Awards at the recently completed Fantasy Sports Trade Association (FSTA) Conference. LeagueSafe, an online tool for managing fantasy league entry fees and end-of-season payouts, won awards in both the Best Specialty Products or Services category and in the Best Innovation category.
LeagueSafe aids fantasy league commissioners and team owners by managing the process of collecting and securing fantasy league entry fees and automating end-of-season payouts. In January 2009, the Wall Street Journal said, "LeagueSafe is the answer to the prayers of disgruntled commissioners."
"It's an honor to be recognized by industry peers for these awards. LeagueSafe is still in its infancy, and we look forward to expanding the product in forthcoming seasons," said LeagueSafe president Paul Charchian.
The FSTA Innovation award is presented to the company within the fantasy sports industry with the most innovative new product design or technology innovation, and includes any new product, contest, service, feature or technical innovation.
