Rice Athletics and FloSports, the innovator in live digital sports and original content, are partnering to produce exclusive live and on-demand coverage during the 2017-18 academic season, including the Owls football game with Louisiana Tech on October 28 on FloFootball.com.
FloSports will carry a combination of five Rice men’s and women’s basketball games on FloHoops.com, in addition to generating Rice specific content across its digital network.
“We are thrilled to partner with an innovative digital player like FloSports, who has built a large and loyal following of sports fans over the years,” Rice Chief Operating Officer Tanner Gardner said. “With the ever changing world of content delivery, we are constantly seeking new, high quality platforms to deliver Rice Athletics content. We have found this in FloSports.”
FloSports entered the college football landscape through partnerships with a pair of Conference USA schools to air Division I football games on FloFootball.com. The partnership debuted with live and on-demand coverage of the WKU’s game with Eastern Kentucky on September 2 and also includes WKU’s Homecoming game with Charlotte on October 14 in addition to the Rice-LA Tech game.
In July, FloSports launched FloFootball.com, announcing major rights deals with The Spring League and USA Football, as well as several high-profile high school football games across the U.S.
“Major college football should be accessible outside the cable bundle, and we’re excited to partner with several Conference USA schools to provide fans anywhere in the world with a new level of coverage,” FloSports SVP Global Rights Acquisition & Subscription Phil Wendler said. “We’re excited about our rapid growth in the college and high school football landscape, as well as across our entire FloSports network, and we look forward to showcasing these great Division I matchups.”
