UK-based GiveMeSport – not dissimilar to the Bleacher Report which uses thousands of bloggers to create and curate content around sport – has announced a Series B fundraising (amount undisclosed) following a further round of funding from strategic partner IMG Media (the global sports, fashion and media company). It now plans to expand into the US, the Bleacher home turf. According to the company, the platform – less than a year old – already has 15/18m visits per month, 8m uniques and 22 full-time employees. It bases much of its output on 2,000 bloggers who, er, like sport enough to work for free. GiveMeSport is owned and run by Sports New Media (SNM) a media technology company, with 40 employees based in London.
