The National Football League’s Los Angeles Chargers have signed a multi-year local broadcast partnership with CBS 2 Los Angeles.
CBS 2 will become the Chargers’ official preseason television partner, as well as a year-round media partner.
As such, the channel will have exclusive rights to over-the-air English language broadcasts of all Chargers preseason home and away games – excluding games nationally televised by a NFL national television partner other than CBS – throughout the Los Angeles market.
In addition, CBS 2 will air a weekly 30-minute Chargers show on Saturday evenings during the NFL season, while Chargers news, highlights and features will air year-round across all CBS Los Angeles platforms.
The two parties will also collaborate during community and tent-pole events throughout the year.
The Chargers are moving to the $5bn SoFi Stadium, along with the Los Angeles Rams, in the 2020 season.
