Last year, the Frontier League announced their partnership with the sports streaming service, FloSports. At that time, the Frontier League was the first and only professional baseball league to be featured on the streaming platform.
“The Frontier League is fully committed to offering our fans exceptional experiences in our ballparks, in their homes, and on their devices”, said Jon Danos, CEO and commissioner of the Frontier League. With FloSports as a partner, our League content is even more accessible, and we take additional steps toward offering a go-to league preferred by players whose talents can be further enjoyed on a big stage along their journey to the big leagues”. Last year alone, seventeen MLB teams purchased the contracts of 47 Frontier League players.
“The addition of the Frontier League games to FloSports represents our continued commitment to delivering the highest quality baseball competition to our subscribers,” said Chris Keldorf, Senior Director, Global Rights Acquisition, FloSports. “We’re excited to bring this programming to our platform to showcase the level of athletic talent that is part of the Frontier League.”FRONTIER LEAGUE AND FLOSPORTS ANNOUNCE LANDMARK STREAMING RIGHTS AGREEMENT
This season, two more MLB partner leagues have joined the FloSports family: the Atlantic League and the Pioneer League.
This marks the first league-wide broadcasting agreement for the Atlantic League.
“This is a landmark opportunity for the Atlantic League to continue to grow our brand,” said ALPB President Rick White. “Our FloBaseball partnership will expand the reach of each club, serve existing and new markets, plus grow viewership and fan engagement. For the first time ever, fans can watch their favorite club’s home and road games, plus any other ALPB games they want to see.”
Beginning with Opening Day on Friday, April 28, all Atlantic League broadcasts will deliver high quality digital productions of home and road ALPB contests, along with FloBaseball new and original content. The partnership will maximize the exposure of every ALPB team and make all 630 league regular and post-season championship games available in home and away markets and anywhere there is an internet connection. The exclusive arrangement replaces past streaming efforts on a club-by-club basis.Atlantic League, FloSports Partner To Stream Games
Earlier this week, the Pioneer League became the third partner league to come to an agreement with FloSports.
The partnership will provide viewers with high-quality, comprehensive streaming coverage of each of the PBL’s 10 teams throughout their full regular season schedules, beginning on Tuesday, May 23rd, and continuing through postseason play.
“The Pioneer League is all about providing our baseball fans with entertaining, unique and quality experiences whether in person at our charming ballparks or, now, anywhere else on FloSports’ streaming platform,” said PBL President Mike Shapiro. “This is a significant step forward for our fans, MLB scouts and the friends and families of our players who can now access our streamed games in one location.”
“Baseball is in the midst of a renaissance and FloSports is proud to support The Pioneer League and provide all PBL games and original content under our FloBaseball platform,” said Chris Keldorf, Senior Director of Rights Acquisition at FloSports. “PBL fans will have access to coverage of all games throughout the season, and we are excited to showcase the next wave of the sport’s talent.”Pioneer League to Stream Games on FloSports
