FRISCO, Texas – 13 October 2023 – Sports tech pioneer Stats Perform has launched a range of initiatives to help boost the profiles of FCS College Football teams and players during the 2023/24 season and secured expanded support from FedEx Ground for the project.
The initiatives include a new national weekly FCS podcast called FCS Delivered, presented by FedEx Ground, hosted by veteran FCS national writer Craig Haley and two-time Super Bowl-winning linebacker Gary Reasons, a three-time All-American on the FCS level. The podcast spans the nation to cover stories about FCS teams and players.
FedEx Ground will also be the principal supporter of Stats Perform’s National FCS Top 25, which teams, fans, and media look to each week to see who is on the rise across the sport, as well as making on-campus presentations to award recipients.
FedEx Ground will also present the FCS National Awards Banquet; the National Offensive, Defensive, Special Teams, Freshman, and Team of the Week; and the Doris Robinson Scholar-Athlete Award, which involves all 15 Division I conferences with FCS football programs and aligns with FedEx Ground’s mission to attract and recruit talent.
Stats Perform is a national leader in coverage of the Football Championship Subdivision, home to 128 NCAA Division I institutions, including national powers North Dakota State and South Dakota State and leading HBCUs. Its fan engagement and team performance tools like PressBox Graphics, PressBox Live, expert researchers, and detailed X-Info data are also utilized across college and professional sports to help teams, broadcasters, and publishers grow audiences and sponsorship revenues.
“We’re thrilled to receive expanded support from FedEx Ground, which has proven to be as passionate about FCS football and its student-athletes as we are,” said Brian Orefice, Stats Perform’s Vice President of Product for U.S. Sports. “The expansion of coverage and engagement should excite everyone in the FCS community.”
FedEx Ground’s sponsorship of FCS college football will also appear on The Analyst and its FCS social media channels. The Analyst is the hub for Stats Perform’s national FCS coverage, alongside Opta stats and analysis from NFL, NBA, global soccer, plus fantasy games, and more.
