Orlando City Soccer Club and WOFL-TV FOX 35 /WRBW MY65 today announced a multi-year partnership whereby FOX 35 and its family of networks will serve as the exclusive English-language local broadcast home for the Lions.
The agreement provides FOX 35 / WRBW MY65 with telecast rights to all Orlando City regular season and playoff matches not aired by MLS’ national television partners.
“This is a landmark day for Orlando City fans,” said President and Founder Phil Rawlins. “We look forward to working closely with our partners at FOX 35 to create, not only a first class broadcast for our fans, but additional in-market promotions and opportunities to bring them closer to their Club and the players on the field.”
Added Allyson Meyers, WOFL/WRBW Vice President and General Manager, “We look forward to working in partnership with the Orlando City Soccer Club. Together, we will create the ultimate fan experience across multiple platforms in Orlando.”
The Club expects to announce a local radio and Spanish-language television partner in the near future.
