The PFL has partnered with FuboTV for its new PFL Challenger Series.
US.- The Professional Fighters League (PFL) has announced an exclusive multi-year partnership with steaming platform FuboTV for its new PFL Challenger Series. The series will debut live on February 18 and stream on consecutive Friday nights on fuboTV and its linear network, Fubo Sports Network, in February, March, and April.
Each Friday, a new face will join the judging panel, including various combat sports champions, as well as celebrities from music and entertainment. Mike Tyson, Ray Lewis and Todd Gurley will be judges during the competitions. In addition, Fubo Sportsbook will serve as exclusive gambling sponsor.
PFL founder and chairman Donn Davis said: “PFL Challenger Series is not your father’s contender series. The winner of the PFL Challenger Series can become a real-world Rocky story, going from an unknown pro to world champion holding a $1m cheque in the same year.”
FuboTV’s co-founder and CEO David Gandler added: “Our partnership with the PFL and its new PFL Challenger Series allows FuboTV to further differentiate our sports-first programming with exclusive MMA content, which we know is one of the hottest live sports for consumers.
“FuboTV believes the future of sports television will be interactive. This partnership will give our audience unprecedented ways to interact and engage with the PFL.”
