Utah Warriors Announce Full 2020 Broadcast Schedule & MLR-First Content Partnerships
Salt Lake City, UT – The Utah Warriors are proud to announce the team’s 2020 broadcasting schedule and partners for the 2020 Major League Rugby season including an industry-first broadcast and content partnerships with three of Utah’s top media outlets with KUTV, the Deseret News and KSL.com news platforms.
The broadcast and content partnerships will not only offer a number of viewing options for Warriors Nation but will also provide new and engaging content around the Warriors, including the players, the staff and even the fans.
“We’re grateful for all of these groups working together with the Warriors organization to create as many ways for Warriors Nation to watch and engage with this team,” said CEO and GM Kimball Kjar.
The Warriors will have five nationally televised games, eleven games broadcast on local Utah networks and all games streamed live online, giving fans a number of ways to watch the Warriors in 2020.
“To have this many national broadcast games as well as our local and OTT partners,” Kjar went on to say, “Warriors Nation will have more options than ever before to watch and share this great sport and this amazing group of players with everyone in the state of Utah.”
KUTV’s General Manager Kent Crawford echoed Kjar’s excitement by carrying the Warriors games on their local sister stations KMYU and KJZZ.
“The Warriors are an exciting and engaging professional sports team,” Crawford said, “With our affiliate network CBS being one of the MLR’s national broadcast partners it made sense to partner with the Warriors on their local broadcast. We’re looking forward to showing rugby and the MLR to all of Utah through our sister stations of KMYU and KJZZ.”
Streaming and content partner the Deseret News and KSL.com will provide an “over the top” (OTT) online streaming option for fans locally, nationally and worldwide. Both media platforms will also be home to original Utah Warriors content including podcasts, Vlogs, rugby 101 information, contests, community and fans content and much more.
With the 2020 TV and OTT broadcast plans the Utah Warriors are poised to deliver more rugby content to the state of Utah than ever before and look forward to growing the game by driving unique online and over-the-air viewing experiences.
