Orlando City SC signs a multi-year partnership with WOFL FOX35 and announces WRBW My65 as the flagship station for the Lions’ locally-televised games ahead of the 2019 Major League Soccer season.
“We are very pleased to join the FOX family,” said Orlando City SC CEO Alex Leitão. “This was a strategic decision to align our locally-televised games with a network known for providing great soccer programming. We hope to bring our fans in Central Florida closer to the global soccer conversation through this partnership ahead of an important year for both the men and women’s game.”
FOX35/My65 will provide fans with more opportunities to consume content and immerse themselves deeper into the sport at the local and national level. In addition to broadcasting 30 of 34 regular-season matches for Orlando City across all platforms--including FOX35, My65, FOX and FS1--the network will broadcast the MLS All-Star Game hosted at Orlando City Stadium on July 31. FOX will also be home to the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019, which will feature several Orlando Pride players competing in the biggest soccer stage this summer.
“Forming this alliance makes perfect sense, as we can further demonstrate our commitment to soccer coverage in a market full of viewers that demand it,” Vice President and General Manager of WOFL/WRBW Allyson Meyers added. “We are excited to offer soccer fans complete coverage before, during and after each of the games across multiple platforms.”
As the exclusive streaming partner for Orlando City SC, YouTube TV online subscribers will have access to FOX’s locally and nationally televised matches.
