ESPN, Liberty Athletics Extend Multi-Year Media Rights
ESPN has signed five year exclusive media rights with Liberty Athletics beginning with the 2021 season through 2025.
This agreement will allow ESPN to broadcast all Liberty home football games assuring that one game each year will air on an ESPN linear network.
ESPN also has the right to choose a non-traditional day (non-Saturday) for a second linear network telecast, with all remaining games distributed on an ESPN digital platform.
Dan Margulis, senior director of programming and acquisitions, ESPN said “We are pleased to continue to showcase Liberty home football games exclusively on ESPN platforms in the years ahead through this multi-year extension of our rights agreement which began in 2018. The recent success of the Flames has made them one of the more intriguing programs in college football the past few seasons.”
Liberty Director of Athletics Ian McCaw said “We are extremely grateful to have such a strong relationship with ESPN. ESPN platforms afford Liberty the best opportunity to tell our story of the fastest rising college football program in the country to Flames Nation and beyond.”
