Multiplatform US sports network Stadium has secured a rights deal with Major League Lacrosse calling for a dozen games to be shown during the 2019 season and the production of weekly segments on the league airing in studio programming.
Games will begin Fri., May 31, with a season-opening contest between the Denver Outlaws and the New York Lizards, and continue through Sept. 21. The MLL rights package extends an active presence in lacrosse for Stadium that also includes more than 150 collegiate games aired in the last year.
“The sport of lacrosse has been an important component to Stadium since our inception,” said Stadium Chief Executive Jason Coyle.
Stadium is distributed in the US through a variety of linear and digital platforms, including over-the-air TV, its own website and mobile application, a growing collection of over-the-top digital video providers, and social media.
