CI Fantasy Sports
Delivering the Reality of Fantasy Sports Entertainment since 1999.
In 1999, with an eye on evolving the Print and Online environments of the print publication industry, we launched an integrated Fantasy Sports solution. Bringing together these formats, we were able to bring readerships of the newspaper industry to a combined digital and print format.
CI Fantasy Sports (also known as Cornerstone International) was originally established in 1992. Our History evolved from the Concert and Sports Event industry, whereby we produced/directed or production coordinated events such as the Olympics, Pan Am Games, World Track and Field Championships, The Hip, The Rolling Stones, Shania Twain, and many more events and professional sports teams.
CI Fantasy Sports is the leading Canadian fantasy sports provider for the print publication industry. Working with Partners such as The Winnipeg Free Press, The Calgary Herald, The Victoria Times Colonist, The St. John’s Telegram, Moncton Times and Transcript, The Windsor Star and others, we have set the standard in this sector. We offer Hockey, Football, Stock Market, Auto Racing, and Golf contests to fit any needs. Further to our Newspaper offerings, in 2007, we also launched our independent ONLINE only version and contests. These direct to consumer contests are offered through CI Fantasy Sports and our parent organization Sports Business Interactive LLC. Our focus is to grow the traditional brand of Fantasy Sports….from pick’em style season long contests, to salary cap manager based contests. In 2015 we launched a separate Survivor series contest (solesurvivorpools.com)….growing the audience and reach to offer more prizing and higher payouts. Thereby offering our superior products, with industry leading prize payouts.
In 2023, we will align all platforms under one site and one umbrella….a one stop shop for all your fantasy sports choices…in NHL Hockey, NFL Football, and soon to be released NCAA Basketball. Future holds Soccer, F1 and NBA Basketball

Fantasy contests provide a vehicle to retain your current subscribers, by giving them a vehicle to be interactive repetitively with your publication. Fantasy contests are also a great tool to drive single copy sales. When the contest is active, the publication publishes a weekly update ad that displays the rankings and winners of that weeks weekly prizes. These results can only be seen in the newspaper on the specific day of the publication. This drives single copy sales for that print day.
