OVC and SportsUnlimited to Launch Ohio Valley Conference Football 2009 Magazine

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. -- The Ohio Valley Conference has announced the launch of production of "Ohio Valley Conference Football 2009" a full-color, limited edition football magazine that previews the 2009 football season. The venture with SportsUnlimited will be available in late August but is now available for pre-order. Detailed feature articles on all nine OVC teams will be included in the publication.

The nine Ohio Valley Conference schools that participate in the Football Championship Subdivision may be overlooked in the national media, but not by their fans and alumni who thirst for information about their favorite team. The OVC’s football roots date back to 1948 and during the past 61 seasons, 14 teams have won or shared the league’s title. The list is led by Eastern Kentucky, winner of 20 outright or shared football titles, including the last two.

For the first time, OVC football will be featured in a full-color magazine dedicated to its nine schools and suitable for display on your coffee table year round. Click here to order your copy or copies today by logging onto www.collegesportsmags.com .

“The OVC is very excited to partner with SportsUnlimited to produce the Ohio Valley Conference Football Publication,” said Kyle Schwartz, OVC Assistant Commissioner for Media Relations. “College football fans are among the most passionate in sports and they have a hunger for information about their favorite teams. This is a great way to satisfy that appetite for information as well as brand our Conference both regionally and nationally.”

The cost of the publication is $4.99 plus tax and shipping.

OVC Basketball 2009-10 is also slated for publication and will be available to OVC fans and alumni in December.
