The New York Cosmos announced today that the club has reached agreement for its home games to be aired in high definition on ONE World Sports during the 2013 NASL Fall Season.
“We’re excited to be able to put our games on air and increase the viewing options for our fans,” Cosmos Chief Operating Officer Erik Stover said.
Cosmos programming will kick off on Aug. 3 when the Cosmos host the Fort Lauderdale Strikers at Hofstra University’s James M. Shuart Stadium. The on-air team for Cosmos telecasts will consist of play-by-play announcer JP Dellacamera and former Cosmos’ goalkeeper Shep Messing as color analyst. The ONE World Sports network is available on DISH, Cablevision’s Optimum TV and Mediacom.
“We are thrilled to be bringing the historic New York Cosmos club to viewers of ONE World Sports,” said Alexander “Sandy” Brown, President and CEO of ONE World Sports. “Our goal is to provide viewers a very unique perspective into the action on the pitch with an enhanced state of the art production.”
The club remains in discussion with various potential broadcast partners, including ONE World Sports for distribution of its road games.
