FIVB announces major partnership with online streaming service FloSports

FloSports will show extensive coverage of major volleyball events across the United States
Lausanne, Switzerland, May 14, 2018 – The FIVB today announced a multi-year partnership with FloSports, one of the leading innovators in live sports and original content, to show extensive coverage of major volleyball events across the United States.  

As part of the agreement, FloSports will show a number of key FIVB competitions on its Over-The-Top (OTT) platform FloVolleyball.tv in the US, including the inaugural Volleyball Nations League (VNL) and the Men’s and Women’s 2018 World Championships. 

The agreement includes the online streaming of 465 live FIVB matches in 2018 alone, which will further strengthen the FIVB’s position in North America. FloVolleyball is the number one site for men’s and women’s volleyball coverage, with viewers able to watch the sport on over 200 days per year.

This is a pivotal moment in the future of volleyball. The creation of the VNL, a joint project between FIVB and IMG beginning on May 15, is the most important competition in the FIVB’s history and will revolutionise how volleyball is presented; making it more fan-centric and placing our fans, both inside and outside the stadium, at the very heart of the action.

Following the announcement, FIVB President Dr. Ary S. Graça F° said:

“This marks another great step for volleyball in one of our key markets. Our sport is hugely popular in America and I am delighted that FloSports and FloVolleyball will provide more opportunities in the digital sphere for fans to enjoy world class action.

“Our mission is to be the world’s number one family sport and our focus on digital innovation and global accessibility of volleyball is key to this. This partnership is another demonstration of our strong digital presence, ensuring that our fans never miss a moment of the action.”

The following FIVB events and championships will be aired in the US on FloVolleyball.tv as part of this partnership:

•    FIVB Volleyball Nations League: 2018-2020
•    FIVB Volleyball Men’s and Women’s World Championships: 2018
•    FIVB Volleyball Men’s and Women’s World Cup: 2019
•    FIVB Volleyball Men’s and Women’s Club World Championships: 2019-2020

“As the international governing body, the FIVB is the world’s largest and most respected volleyball organisation,” FloSports co-founder and COO Mark Floreani said. “Our partnership will serve as the cornerstone for our volleyball vertical, allowing us to provide fans with unparalleled coverage of the sport and expanded coverage of the VNL brand. We’re excited to give volleyball fans increased access to these events, and provide unmatched content to the top volleyball events year-round.”
