FC Edmonton and Rogers have inked a partnership which will see at least six Eddies games live on The Score this NASL season.
FC Edmonton has rapidly become one of Edmonton’s most exciting professional sports franchises, playing to loud and boisterous crowds at least 14 times a year.
Thanks to the newly-signed partnership, The Score will broadcast nine FC Edmonton home games this year, starting May 12 vs. Atlanta and culminating October 27 with a game against Tampa Bay.
“Throughout the club’s first three seasons, FC Edmonton has endeavoured to introduce itself to the Edmonton sports community as a fun and affordable professional entertainment choice,” said general manager Rod Proudfoot. “This new deal with Rogers will further raise the profile of FC Edmonton, our sponsors and our supporters within Edmonton and within the North American Soccer League. And with The Score’s reach, FC Edmonton will now become a more recognizable brand across the country.”
In addition to having the games televised live, City Edmonton has committed to help support the broadcasts with on-air promotional spots, commercials, creative features and local live content.
The Score is Canada’s third-largest specialty sports channel with 6.6 million television subscribers, delivering breaking sports news, analysis, highlights and live events.
City Edmonton offers viewers intensely-local, urban-oriented, culturally-diverse television programming.
Media are invited to Clarke Stadium today where FC Edmonton owner Tom Fath, coaches, players and representatives from the City of Edmonton will be on-hand to unveil the stadium’s new stands and seats, as well as a few other exciting announcements. FC Edmonton’s first team training session runs from 10:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m., at which point the media conference will begin.
