TAMPA/LONDON – January 8, 2009: Sports Features Communications is launching the ultra-targeted SFC Press Point system in an online format for press releases and story leads, catering to more than 60 sports.

It’s fast, easy and cost-effective – and SFC Press Point is indexed in Google News and cross-referenced in a multitude of online portals and blogs.

Sports Features is read worldwide by top-level media, IOC members, NOCs, IFs, sponsors, Olympic Games and international and national soccer officials including World Cup bidders, TV rights holders and a multitude of decision-makers in sport.

Sign up to receive daily email alerts for your specific sports, selected from a growing list, and including daily e-clips from our news-specific microsites focusing on Olympics issues and the world of soccer.
