NEWS REAL

• The NFL said today (Nov. 13) that it would move the Monday night game on Nov. 19  (ESPN) between the Kansas City Chiefs-Los Angeles Rams, originally scheduled for Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles.

According to the NFL, “The decision is based on the determination — in consultation with the NFLPA and following a meeting and field inspection this afternoon by NFL and club field experts as well as local and independent outside experts — that the playing field at Estadio Azteca does not meet NFL standards for playability and consistency and will not meet those standards by next Monday.”

• CBS said that Tim Tebow would be the host for its in-production reality series, Million Dollar Mile, from LeBron James’ Springhill Entertainment, Warner Bros. and  Fly on the Wall Entertainment. Commentators will be Maria Taylor and Matt Smith. The premise: A team wins $1 million if they can survive an obstacle course being built on real city streets.

• ESPN Events is adding a bowl game to its roster beginning in 2020, the Myrtle Beach Bowl. The game will feature teams from three conference partners: Conference USA, Mid-American Conference and Sun Belt Conference. Each conference will participate up to four times between 2020 and 2025. The Myrtle Beach Bowl will be played in Brooks Stadium, located on the campus of Coastal Carolina, nationally televised on ESPN networks.

• Between now and Nov. 19, every use of #SaluteToService on Twitter will generate a $5 donation, up to $5 million, to the NFL’s military non-profit partners – including the Pat Tillman Foundation, TAPS, USO, Wounded Warrior Project and the Bob Woodruff Foundation.

CBS Sports, PBR Enhance Media Deal With More Live Coverage, In-Depth Features

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

May 7, 2018:
With a stated goal to "to grow all western sports and the western lifestyle back into the mainstream consciousness," CBS Sports — which has televised Professional Bull Riders on CBS and CBS Sports Network since 2012 – and PBR have signed an expanded agreement for CBS to broadcast marquee rodeo events and the PBR Global Cup as the primary distribution partner.

The league will also offer fans new access to rodeo on RidePass, the new digital sports network.
 
New and expanded relationships with western sports organizations include Calgary Stampede, Days of ’47 Cowboy Games & Rodeo, Cheyenne Frontier Days, WCRA (World Champions Rodeo Alliance), National High School Rodeo and Indian National Finals Rodeo.

This past weekend, PBR and World Champions Rodeo Alliance unveiled a $6 million prize purse that will encompass eight events over the next year, along with a world ranking system for athletes to qualify for high-payout rodeos as well as “other growth initiatives for the industry.”

The $6 million in payouts will be comprised of four large rodeos each featuring a $1 million purse, with four semi-final qualifier events proving the additional $2 million in prize money.

“PBR’s roots run deep in rodeo, and we will continue to champion the western lifestyle on all fronts,” Sean Gleason, CEO for PBR, said in a statement.

“We’re thrilled to bring extensive media coverage of marquee events to rodeo fans, including prime-time network television this summer . . . Our goal is to grow all western sports and the western lifestyle back into the mainstream consciousness.”

As part of the deal, CBS Sports plans to broadcast two hours of rodeo on CBS featuring final round coverage and the crowning of champions from the Calgary Stampede (July 21) and Days of ‘47 Cowboy Games & Rodeo from Salt Lake City (July 28).

This would mark the first time Calgary Stampede and Days of ’47 have been broadcast in the U.S. on network television.

CBS Sports will broadcast a combined four hours of the PBR Global Cup — the international PBR nation vs. nation competition — and premier rodeo content, on CBS, with final round broadcast coverage in both 2019 and 2020.

There also will be expanded cable television coverage this summer on CBS Sports Network, which will air a 30-minute wrap-up show for each of the ten days of competition of the Calgary Stampede.

CBS Sports Network will also air five, half-hour wrap-up shows for Days of ’47.

PBR’s rights agreements with western sports organizations will increase coverage of rodeo on RidePass, the digital sports network that launched in February.

Coverage is scheduled to include Calgary Stampede and Days of ‘47 Rodeo events live.

PBR will market, produce and digitally broadcast two days of bull riding (July 23-24) from Cheyenne Frontier Days, which will be covered exclusively on RidePass.

Via media rights with Indian National Finals Rodeo, RidePass will provide live coverage of the INFR finals from South Point Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas (Oct. 23-27).

Among other events added to the platform, RidePAss will cover the Texas State Finals championship rounds (June 16), National Junior High Finals (June 24-30), and National High School Finals (July 15-21), through its partnership with the NHSRA
