WENDELL, N.C. – August 27, 2015 – Raycom Sports in partnership with KIOTI Tractor has launched the ACC QB Challenge Presented by KIOTI Tractor. The football gaming app, now available for free download through Apple and Google Play app stores, allows fans to compete in passing challenges as their favorite school. As part of the app’s launch, KIOTI is offering fans an opportunity to win a KIOTI CS2410 tractor with the 2015 ACC QB Challenge – KIOTI Tractor Giveaway.

“We are proud to continue to push the envelope in engaging mobile platforms for college sports with ACC QB Challenge Presented by KIOTI Tractor,” said Trey Walters, Senior Director of New Media for Raycom Sports. “Following our success kicking field goals with ACC Football Challenge the last couple years, the new passing style app takes the next step in the evolution of college sports mobile gaming.”

The ACC QB Challenge Presented by KIOTI Tractor features first-person football passing style game play with receivers running a variety of route combinations – the goal being to hit as many receivers and be as accurate as possible. ACC QB Challenge game formats will include head-to-head, season, rivalry and practice modes.

The rivalry mode allows fans to represent their schools and play against the fan base of their team’s ACC opponent that week with score updates provided in the app, online and in ACC Network broadcasts. Season mode will let the user play their team’s ACC Football season, facing off against both home and away opponents with the chance to advance to the ACC Championship game.

Within each format, fans can share scores on Facebook and Twitter as well as keep track of overall performance on conference and school leaderboards. Throughout the season, the ACC along with KIOTI Tractor will be engaging users in social contests to post high scores and compete for prizes.

“We are excited to partner with Raycom Sports to be the presenting sponsor for their newest ACC football gaming app,” says Peter Dong Kyun Kim, president and chief executive officer of Daedong-USA,Inc., KIOTI Tractor Division. “This partnership is a great addition to our overall branding strategy as it creates a unique and integrated opportunity to support and engage our dealers, customers and fans with the KIOTI brand in one of the fastest-growing handheld digital arenas.”
