FloSports expands portfolio with Big 12 championships

OTT provider FloSports’ portfolio of championships and properties gained a boost as the broadcaster will again air the Big 12 conference winter and spring championships.

FloSports will stream the 2019 editions of the Big 12 Swimming and Diving Championship, the Indoor and Outdoor Track & Field Championship, the Wrestling Championship, and the Softball Championship. Each event will air on the appropriate Flosports vertical for the sport.

Last month FloSports signed a deal with MLS club DC United, becoming the official broadcaster of the club which features England legend Wayne Rooney, and recently opened Audi Field. All DC United broadcasts that are not nationally-televised in the United States will air on FloFC.com, FloSports’ soccer vertical. FloSports also has an extensive agreement with the Big 10 conference to provide OTT broadcasts of that league’s sporting events.

“We look forward to again live streaming these Big 12 Championships across our network,” FloSports’ senior vice-president of global rights acquisition and strategy, Adam Fenn, said. “This is one of the best conferences in the nation, featuring some of the world’s best athletes, and we’re proud to display their achievements.”

But MP & Silva and B4 are no longer active and IMG could yet face a major problem. The agency could be hit with a substantial damages claim by the league for lost earnings.
