By DeWarren Smith: St. Louis Trotters Reach Deal with UrbanIFilms


The St. Louis Trotters Ink Exclusive Deal with UrbanIFilms for coverage of their 2013 Fall/Winter Session in the dominant IBA League. In their effort to bring value to the franchise the St. Louis Trotters have reached a special agreement with UrbanIFilms to film their home games this upcoming 2013 Fall/Winter session. UrbanIFilms is based out of E. Saint Louis and specializes in the production of music videos, documentary, and narrative short films. The owner and operator Marquis Burton is known for his professionalism and quality. “I met Marquis Burton, while he shot for Delux Magazine during their birthday celebration for beloved radio personality, Tammie Holland,” says Trotters Director, DeWarren Smith.

On this night Marquis wielded his Sony HDV with such ability and acumen that Smith was impressed. After a brief conversation, Smith took the businessman’s card and contacted him to discuss what he could bring to their organization. “Marquis and I began to discuss our needs and we came to terms quickly, like my Dad says, “It doesn’t take all day to do nothing,” and especially in this case there’s mutual benefit to both businesses. This being our second full year in the league we want to offer our advertisers value, our players game footage, and potential sponsors a substantive product to get behind. For Mr. Burton he gets “a front row seat to the best basketball action in the region,” says Smith, jokingly.

The tandem will begin their work October 26th at the Trotters Home Opener at Mathews Dickey Boys and Girls Club in the Loynd Gymnasium. Tickets are $5 for adults, ages 18-12 are $3.00, and children under 12 are free. Half Time entertainment has yet to be announced but the Trotters are gearing up for a breakout season this year to establish themselves as the premier professional basketball organization in St. Louis and worthy of its franchise position in the growing IBA.

He Got Game: St. Louis #RAMS To Become The London #RAMS?

From The AP:

LONDON — The St. Louis Rams took the first step to becoming Britain’s “home” team Friday, agreeing to play a regular-season NFL game in London in each of the next three seasons.

And first up are the New England Patriots, who are two wins from another Super Bowl title.

The Rams and Patriots meet at Wembley on Oct. 28, about two months after the closing ceremony of the London Olympics. That will be followed by games at Wembley against undetermined opponents in 2013 and 2014.

The Rams are owned by Stan Kroenke, who is also the majority shareholder in the English soccer club Arsenal. The team will give up home games in St. Louis for the three seasons they are in London.

“We’ve seen first-hand the increased popularity of the NFL not only in London but throughout Europe,” Kroenke said in a statement. “To play a role in that growth over the next three years will be incredible and is a testament to the many good things happening not only in the NFL but also in the St. Louis Rams organization.”
