"I'm thrilled to have GBGM acquire the AmpedFantasy operation and look forward to having the web site capitalize on the growth of fantasy sports. Envative, an international web and mobile development company, will carry out the development and administration of the AmpedFantasy web site. GBGM has assured us of their financial commitment, expertise and resources to make AmpedFantasy one of the leading fantasy sports operations worldwide," said Bryan Ciambella, who founded AmpedFantasy.
