World Surf League has renewed its Television Partnership with CBS Sports and has announced a new partnership with Turner Sports’ Bleacher Report Live.
CBS Sports will televise more than 40 hours of surfing coverage as the television partner across CBS and CBS Sports Network. Turner Sports’ B/R Live will distribute extensive live WSL coverage and become the league’s official destination for championship-caliber video on demand (VOD) content, replays and highlights.
The coverage will begin with the WSL Founders’ Cup of Surfing presented by Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold event May 5-6.
WSL platforms will live stream the event globally.
“Our expanded national broadcast and live streaming platforms will help to showcase what our surf fans already know and love: surfing is an incredible sport that delivers excitement, athleticism and engaging content,” said WSL Chief Executive Officer Sophie Goldschmidt. “We can’t wait to unveil the WSL Surf Ranch that produces the best man-made wave in history, to a national audience for the first time.”
