PLANO, TX--(Marketwired - Feb 4, 2014) - In a move that reshapes the collegiate multimedia landscape, Learfield Sports announced today that it has acquired Nelligan Sports Marketing (NSM), adding 41 collegiate properties to its portfolio. "This transaction is a strategic move for our company, substantially expanding our platform of college rights," said Greg Brown, president and CEO of Learfield. "Adding the rights that TJ Nelligan and his colleagues have acquired over the years will strengthen our position in certain regions where we already have significant sponsorship rights.

Center in Louisville, Ky., which is home to the National Champion Louisville Cardinal basketball teams, represented by Nelligan. "Learfield is a terrific company with a stellar brand in college athletics," said Nelligan, chairman of Nelligan Sports Marketing. "Having founded this business, I had a personal interest that the company would end up in the hands of a great firm that would care for our employees and clients with great service and integrity. Learfield fits the bill beautifully. " The business will operate with the name of Learfield Sports, effective immediately, and terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Nelligan and Tim Hofferth will continue to work with Learfield to manage certain partnerships and strategic initiatives. "We will be integrating the operations from NSM immediately, and we plan to grow the base of business," added Brown. "We are also excited about the additional capabilities we can provide the NSM schools. " Both executives noted that the transaction will provide Nelligan employees with increased support from a larger organization and greater career opportunities.
