24/7 Media’s sports channel currently delivers in excess of 16 million monthly impressions, reaching more than 1.2 million unique users, according to the October 1998 Media Metrix Ad Network report. The American Cities sites will deliver on average an incremental 50 million monthly impressions.

Financial arrangements were not disclosed.

“This relationship delivers a compelling proposition to sports franchises and leagues,” said Jerry Silverman, executive vice president of business development for American Cities Studios. “American Cities understands the emotional aspect of selling sports advertising and knows how to package Internet inventory into multiple-platform sponsorship packages. With 24/7 Media’s highly regarded sales force as our partner, we can now also offer the best solution for maximizing the value of a Web site’s total inventory.”
