FloSports Announces Multiyear Broadcast Partnership With UMass

Today, FloSports, the innovator in live digital sports and original content, the University of Massachusetts Athletics, and multimedia rightsholder UMass Sports Properties of Learfield IMG College, announced a two-year broadcast partnership. 

FloSports will provide live coverage and on-demand coverage of all six of the program’s 2019 home football home games at McGuirk Alumni Stadium on FloFootball.com

“We are pleased to enter into a new partnership with FloSports and extend our valuable relationship with NESN for the upcoming football season,” said UMass Director of Athletics Ryan Bamford. “Flo has been innovative in the digital space and NESN continues to be a regional leader in professional and college sports coverage. 

"This multi-dimensional partnership to produce and distribute UMass football games aligns perfectly with our broadcast strategies to gain maximum visibility for our growing FBS program. It will guarantee that Minutemen fans can watch Coach Bell’s team from various platforms when they can’t be at McGuirk Alumni Stadium this season.”

Lindsey Ross, Flo's director of global rights and acquisitions, echoed Bamford's excitement about the partnership.

“UMass has a great football program with very passionate fans,” she said. “This partnership expands our NCAA football coverage, which now includes Colonial Athletic Association, MEAC, New Mexico State, SIAC and many more. In addition, FloSports is pleased to be able to bring these games to fans who cannot make it out to McGuirk Alumni Stadium or to visiting team fans across the country.”
