Madrid, 7 th October 2010– Sports City looks for the best sports manager on the social networks. Facebook users already have another reason for competing: to become the game’s best sports manager. Sports City offers a unique experience on Facebook through the perfect combination of characteristic elements from the classic sports management games, and a more innovative vision of the Tycoon style. The game has been developed by Zed, the multiplatform digital entertainment company that develops and markets social entertainment products and services for mobile, TV and web.

 

In Sports City the users are the core of experience. Each player manages the development and evolution of his own club by adding new sports and fields (stadiums and courts), and through strategic decisions like amplifying its sport facilities or including new provisions to the club, such as the empowerment of the youth, training areas, gyms, restaurants as well as administrative and marketing staff. To become the best sports manager each player tries to generate the most revenue possible, taking into account that the sports competition will directly affect the club.

 

Each player manages and builds his own sports center for eight different kinds of sports: american football, rugby, baseball, basketball, Formula Racing, Stock Car Racing, football/soccer and hockey. To be among the top players in the classification, players have to pass levels every day, hire the stars of each sport, obtain and / or buy virtual money and get, like in the real world, his club of supporters.

 

Sports City is the new game developed by Zed, which is already available on Facebook with highly advanced graphics that allow users to have an innovative graphic quality experience compared to other games for social networks on the market. It also represents a new way of developing social games through advanced playability and more game detail.
