Gulf South Conference Partners With FloSports

The Gulf South Conference, one of the country’s leading Division II conferences, and FloSports, an innovator in sports streaming and original content, announced a media rights partnership to provide live and on-demand coverage of the conference’s complete football programs and team sports championships to fans worldwide. The 4-year partnership extends through the 2023-24 season and includes streaming rights to the complete Gulf South Football and Conference Championships across the conference’s 18 official and associate member schools.

With the launch of this comprehensive partnership, Gulf South joins other innovative NCAA Division I and Division II conferences to distribute their entire football season and Conference Championships on a digital-only, OTT platform allowing fans to watch live and on-demand games and other sports-related content on any device, anywhere. 

Conference Championship events featured in the partnership include basketball, baseball, soccer, cross country, indoor/outdoor track and field, softball, women’s volleyball, and women’s lacrosse. In addition to complete coverage of conference games, Gulf South and FloSports will collaborate on a new weekly live studio show dedicated to news, interviews, and analysis of the conference’s football programs throughout each season. Details on the new show will be announced soon.

“This is an exciting time for the GSC and our constituents. To partner with an innovator like FloSports who holds our conference, institutions, and student-athletes in such high regard is a great decision by our membership,” GSC Commissioner Matt Wilson said. “We cannot wait to begin delivering terrific content through the platform.”

“We are proud to partner with Gulf South Conference to bring high-quality sports and content to their fans,” FloSports CEO & Co-Founder Mark Floreani said. “We believe it’s important to open up access to these Division II conference sports and teams to a wider audience and collaborate with partners like Gulf South to deepen their sports communities and strengthen the direct relationship with their fans.”

“CSMG enjoys a strong and collaborative working relationship with the outstanding team at FloSports and find its dedication and responsiveness to its collegiate partners across all levels to be superb,” says Ray Katz, COO and Co-Founder, Collegiate Sports Management Group. “We also applaud conference members for their vision and leadership to elevate the Gulf South Conference’s content distribution, more broadly displaying the GSC’s superb quality with respect to producing events and on-field play. This will accelerate the perceived value of Division II collegiate athletics worldwide.”

The agreement was negotiated by the Gulf South Conference and Lindsey Ross, Director, Rights Acquisition at FloSports with assistance by Collegiate Sports Management Group. Gulf South becomes the ninth collegiate entity to enter into a multi-sport partnership with FloSports to grow their sports communities. 

Through relationships with the NCAA, Big Ten, Big 12, Mountain West, Colonial Athletic Association (CAA), Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC), Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC), Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) and Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC), FloSports has demonstrated a consistent ability to build a highly engaged sports audience through compelling content and delivering quality broadcast production value to college sports fans. 

The company continues to broaden its collegiate sports platform offerings through vertical sports platforms including the recently launched FloBaseball that featured over 700 games on its broadcast schedule this season, FloHoops that broadcasts some of the best college basketball tournaments in the country as well as industry-leading platforms such as FloSoftball.

Gulf South fans will have the ability to access live and on-demand coverage of exclusive content and games by becoming a monthly or annual subscriber at FloSports.tv.
