Reality Sports Online (“RSO”) is engaged in the development and dissemination of reality-based fantasy sports products. RSO aims to provide fantasy users with a realistic and engaging online general manager experience by simulating the front office operations of a professional sports franchise through its sophisticated platform.

RSO launched its first product, a Fantasy Football Front Office League Manager Platform (the “Football Platform”), in July 2012. The Football Platform allows real participants to build and manage their fantasy teams like an NFL general manager and compete against one another during the NFL season.

The Football Platform’s most innovative feature is its Free Agency Auction Room, in which up to 32 fantasy owners compete against each other to sign NFL players to single and/or multi-year contracts. The Free Agency Auction Room simulates NFL Free Agency over the course of 3-4 hours, instead of 3-4 months.

Additional features of our Football Platform include a Rookie Draft (with slotted contracts and in-draft trading), the NFL salary cap, guaranteed money, salary cap acceleration, in-season signings, contract extensions, injured reserve, a franchise tag, rookie options, practice squad, a full range of customizable settings and scoring categories, and much more.
